Nanoparticles in Endodontic Irrigation - A Review

Sangavi Balakrishnan | Swathi Amin


Abstract: The main goal of the root canal treatment is the elimination of the infection from the root canal system. The complete disinfection of the root canals is challenging due to its complex anatomy. The inaccessible anatomic aberrations solely depend on irrigation for disinfection. The use of nanoparticles in the irrigants enhances the efficiency of disinfection due to their ultra small sizes, large surface area/ mass ratio, and increased chemical reactivity. This article presents a comprehensive review on the scientific knowledge that is available on the application of nanoparticles in endodontic irrigation.
