|Title:||The importance of final rinse after disinfection of gutta-percha and Resilon cones|
|Abstract:||Objectives. The aim of this study was to evaluate the morphologic alterations on the surface of gutta-percha and Resilon cones exposed to disinfectant solutions. Study design. Fifty-six gutta-percha and Resilon cones were used. Seven groups were analyzed: G1: control; G2, G3, and G4: 5.25% NaOCl, 2% CHX, and MTAD, respectively, without final rinse; G5, G6, and G7: the same solutions with final rinse. Then the samples were analyzed by means of scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy. Results. Regarding the use of NaOCl without rinse, there was chloride crystal formation in all samples. When the cones were rinsed, the crystals were removed. When 2% chlorhexidine was used, no change was observed. MTAD without rinse showed the presence of a precipitate in gutta-percha cones. When the cones were rinsed, it was eliminated. Conclusions. The final rinse is essential, especially when NaOCl and MTAD are used in the cones' disinfection process. (Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod 2011;111:e21-e24)|
