Aim The purpose of this study is to determine current trends in irrigation selection among Endodontists Methods Survey participants were asked 14 questions based on their individual responses. Among other questions, participants were asked about their irrigant selection, irrigant concentration, smear layer removal, and use of adjuncts to irrigation, Results our data indicate that >91 % of respondents are using sodium hypochlorite as their primary irrigant, Most endodontists surveyed (56 %) use full-strength sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl concentration >5.0 %) Seventy-seven percent of respondents aim to remove the smear layer during endodontic treatment. Almost half of all respondents use an adjunct to irrigation with 44 % using ultrasonic activation and 36 % using sonic (or subsonic) activation. Conclusion Most of the respondents are using full Strength sodium hypochlorite and are routinely removing the smear layer during endodontic treatment. In addition, almost half of the respondents are using an adjunct, such as ultrasonic activation, to aid in their irrigation technique.
