One of the principal goals of root canal treatment is the cleaning of entire root canal system through removal of pulpal debris, smear layer and smear plugs. Instrumentation alone is not sufficient to remove pulpal debris and smear layer thoroughly. Irrigation of root canal system in between instrumentation is mandatory to completely debride and clean the root canal.

Irrigation is generally done between each subsequent instrumentation. Principal aim of irrigation is dissolution and lavage of pulpal debris out of root canal. Irrigation is the most neglected phase of the root canal treatment but it should be understood that without or with incomplete irrigation, root canal treatment is incomplete. Smear layer, lateral canals, auxiliary canals and furcations are impossible to clean without proper irrigation.
