  • Abstract

    Aim: The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of natural intracanal medications in eliminating microbes from human root canals. Materials and Methods: PubMed central databases were searched. Reference lists from identified articles were scanned. A forward search was undertaken on the authors of the identified articles. Papers that had cited these articles were also identified through the science citation index to identify potentially relevant subsequent primary research. Data of the included studies were independently extracted. Results: Three ex vivo studies were identified and included in the systematic review, covering 250 samples. Sample size in each study varied from 70 to 90 teeth. Only one study indicated that the natural intracanal medication was significantly more effective than other groups. The other two studies indicated that the natural intracanal medicament was less effective initially, but later, it was equally effective as the other groups based on elimination of microorganisms as evidenced by reduction in colony-forming units. Conclusion: Natural intracanal medicaments are equally effective in elimination of bacteria from human root canal when assessed by culture techniques.
