Disagreements were resolved by consensus. J Appl Oral Sci. Prospective studies were reviewed with regard to the efficacy of the intracanal medicaments on bacterial biofilm. Thus, attached bacteria sessile growing in a biofilm display a wide range of characteristics that provide a number of advantages over single-cell planktonic bacteria.

Microbiological monitoring and results of treatment of extraradicular endodontic infection. Enterococcus faecalis-mediated biomineralized biofilm formation on root canal. The phases for the microbial community to develop a biofilm and colonize the environment may sometimes be unusual, but basically occur with the same sequence of developmental steps: In this context, it is important to make a critical analysis of therapeutic protocols for the management of bacterial biofilm.

Most studies about endodontic biofilm are in vitro medicxments. The microenvironment of root canal presents excellent conditions to establish microbial growth Please review our privacy policy.

This ecological view medicaaments the persisting infection problem in endodontics suggests that the action of individual species in refractory endodontic infections is secondary when compared to the adaptive changes of a polymicrobial biofilm community undergoing physiological and genetic changes in response intracnal changes in the root canal environment.



In medicxments antimicrobial activity of sodium hypochlorite and chlorhexidine against selected single-species biofilms. Susceptibilties of two Enterococcus faecalis phenotypes to root canal medications. This structure affects the movement of molecules and gradients in key determinants develop. From a total of 91 articles, 8. Study Selection The selected articles were identified from titles, abstracts and full-text articles by two independent reviewers, considering the tabulated inclusion and exclusion criteria.

It is mandatory to consider the role and importance of biofilm in endodontics, as well as its definition. Microbial status of apical root canal system of human mandibular first molars with primary apical periodontitis after one-visit-endodontic treatment. Inclusion criteria Medicamsnts vivo studies, in humans. The penetration of microorganisms in infected root dentin have shown variations considering the experimental model, the biological indicator and revjew time of incubation employed in the studies Table 4.

Various obstacles on the analysis of the pertinent data for the included studies involved methodological data that were hidden and that present a relative degree of importance.

Autoaggregation and coaggregation of bacteria associated with acute endodontic infections. The principle of a treatment to reach favorable outcomes in endodontic infection management requires the recognition of the problem and the removal of the etiological factors.


Susceptibilities of Enterococcus faecalis biofilms to some antimicrobial medications. An in vitro evaluation of the antimicrobial efficacy of irrigants on biofilms of root canal isolates. Chavez de Paz, et al. Antimicrobial photodynamic therapy combined with conventional endodontic treatment to eliminate root canal biofilm infection. More information is now available about the existence of polymicrobial biofilm communities on root canal walls coupled with new data showing that the adaptive mechanisms of bacteria in these biofilms are significantly augmented for increased survival.


Antibiotics as intracanal medicaments: a review.

Bactericidal effect of Nd: Socransky and Haffajee 37 intrafanal that the reason for the existence of a biofilm is that it allows microorganisms to stick to and multiply on surfaces. Uncountable investigations 1 – 57912 – 1518202223262731 – 34383944 about the antimicrobial potential of intracanal medicaments on bacterial biofilm have medifaments contradictory results, but the clinical question on how to eliminate the endodontic bacterial biofilm remains unclear.

The efficacy of a particular agent was dependent on the nature of the organism in the biofilm and on the contact time. The major difficulty found in the present study was the great deal of available information, and the large number of investigations with agreeing and disagreeing conclusions.

The purpose of this paper is to make a critical analysis of the published research on the antibacterial efficacy of intracanal medicaments on bacterial revew.
