Abstract

  This study was done to test the antimicrobial efficiency of four irrigating solutions such as chlorhexidine (CHX), sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), Bio pure MTAD, Oxum, against the E. Faecalis microorganisms in root canals. Fifty freshly extracted single- rooted human teeth were selected. They were enlarged to a size 45 k - File (Maillefer). Instrumentation was followed by irrigation with 5 ml of above irrigating solutions for each file used. 20µl of the suspension was inoculated into each of root canals. After 48 hr of incubation at 37°C, microbial growth was verified, confirming the contamination of the root canals. After the instrumentation, the sampling was done. The specimens were incubated at 37°C for 7 days. Within the limitations of this study it was concluded that MTAD significantly reduced the number of E. Faecalis followed by chlorhexidine and sodium hypochlorite and least reduction was observed in oxum.
