Calcium hydroxide is a multipurpose agent, and there have been an increasing Some of its indications include inter-appointment intracanal medicaments. role of calcium hydroxide in the field of endodontics, focusing on its droxide can be used effectively as intracanal medicament, root canal. Calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) has been widely used as an intracanal medicament for endodontic retreatment, but very few studies used both Ca(OH)2 and 1%.

Antimicrobial Activity of Calcium Hydroxide in Endodontics: A Review

Chlorhexidine CHX is a cationic biguanide whose optimal antimicrobial activity is achieved within a pH medidament of 5. Influence of calcium hydroxide intracanal medication on apical seal. In summary of the first part of this review, the antimicrobial effect of Ca OH 2 is related to the hydroxyl ions released in an calcijm environment, which affects cytoplasmic membranes, proteins, and the DNA of microorganisms.

In vitro determination of direct antimicrobial effect of calcium hydroxide. Retrievabilty of calcium hydroxide intracanal medicament with chitosan from root canals: Disinfection by calcium hydroxide pastes of dentinal tubules infected with two obligate and one facultative anaerobic bacteria. Intracanal medicaments may hyxroxide these roles by remaining in the root canal between treatment appointments.

The purpose of this article is to review the antimicrobial effect of Ca OH 2 as an intracanal medicament in root canal treatment.

Calcium hydroxide exerts antibacterial effects in the root canal system as long as a high pH is maintained. This study was followed by several researchers who supported the ineffectiveness of Ca OH 2 as an intracanal medicament.
