    In endodontics, a complete chemo mechanical cleansing of the root canal system which is complex is required and is the key to achieve therapeutic success. Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), with its antimicrobial and proteolytic characteristic, is an efficient endodontic irrigant, and it is the most commonly used irrigant. There are various methods to activate the root canal irrigant such as using large amounts of NaOCl, preheating and also using sonic and ultrasonic cases. The main goal of the root canal treatment is to completely eliminate the different components of the pulpal tissue, calcification, and bacteria, the placement of a hermetic seal to prevent infection or re-infection and to promote healing of the surrounding tissues if needed. There are many techniques available to accomplish the root canal preparation. There are also many techniques for filling the root canal system (i.e., vertical compaction of warm gutta-percha, System B, and lateral condensation). NaOCl has many desirable qualities and properties. It performs bactericidal cytotoxicity, dissolution of organic material, and minor lubrification. The aim of this survey is to systemically study the various modalities used in the activation of NaOCl.
