|Title:||Clinical Investigation of the Efficacy of Chemomechanical Preparation with Rotary Nickel-Titanium Files for Removal of Endotoxin from Primarily Infected Root Canals|
|Abstract:||Introduction: This clinical study was conducted to investigate the ability of chemomechanical preparation with 25% NaOCl + 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and rotary nickel-titanium (NiTi) system in removing endotoxin from primary root canal infection with apical periodontitis. Methods: Twenty-one root canals with necrotic pulps were selected. Samples were collected before (s1) and after chemomechanical preparation (s2). The limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL) assay was used to quantify endotoxins. Results: The LAL assay indicated that endotoxins were present in 100% of the root canals investigated (19/19) before (s1) and after chemomechanical preparation (s2). Analyses of the quantitative data revealed that the endotoxin content was significantly reduced at s2 (98.06%) compared with that at Si (P < .05). Conclusions: Our findings indicate that chemomechanical preparation with 2.5% NaOCl + 17% EDTA and rotary NiTi files was effective in reducing endotoxin load in the root canal infection from primarily infected teeth with apical periodontitis.
