Abstract

This study compared the efficacy of light-activated low-power laser, 2% chlorhexidine (CHX) and 2.5% NaOCl in eliminating Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis) from the root canal system. The root canals of 60 maxillary central incisors were contaminated with E. faecalis and then the bact...read more
