Abstract

The main objective in endodontic therapy is the removal of pulpal and dentinal debris from the root canal system. In order to accomplish this objective, biomechanical preparation and chemical preparation are used concomitantly. The evidence shows that mechanical instrumentation, irrigation and use of inter appointment medication are all important in this regard. However, intracanal medicaments should be used only for root canal disinfection as a part of controlled asepsis in infected root canals, and their role is secondary to cleaning and shaping of the root canal.
