  • Abstract

    The success of root canal therapy relies on the combination of proper instrumentation, irrigation, and obturation of the root canal. Of these three essential steps of root canal therapy, irrigation of the root canal is the most important determinant in the healing of the periapical tissues. The primary endodontic treatment goal must thus be to optimize root canal disinfection and to prevent reinfection. Moreover, during the preparation of root canal, manually and by rotary instruments, the smear layer is created that must be eliminated by irrigants. Irrigants have traditionally been delivered into the root canal space using syringes and metal needles of different size and tip design. This review summarizes the various irrigants and their delivery devices used in clinical practice.
