Toxicity testing of dental materials. The findings highlight the importance and need for stringently applying non-antibiotic chemomechanical measures in order to disrupt the biofilm and reduce the intraradicular microbial load to the lowest possible level to ensure the most favorable long-term prognosis for treatment of infected root canals.

Comparative evaluation of antimicrobial efficacy of sodium hypochlorite, MTAD, and Tetraclean against Enterococcus faecalis biofilm. The antimicrobial efficacy of intracanal medicaments on bacterial biofilm still needs to be confirmed. George S, Kishen A.

A guide to interpreting discordant systematic reviews. The susceptibility of oral bacterial biofilm to antimicrobial agents indicates the need to reproduce in vivo conditions where bacteria grow as biofilm on tooth surfaces Participation of bacterial biofilms in refractory and chronic periapical periodontitis. How to write an evidence-based clinical review article.

For all reasons addressed in this paper, and considering the heterogeneity of guidelines to study antimicrobial strategies for endodontic infections and the high clinical success estimate, adequate disinfection assisted by the intracanal medicaments reduces the bacterial population and favors the prognosis. Microbiological monitoring and results of treatment of extraradicular endodontic infection. The invasion of root dentinal tubules by root canal bacteria is a multifactorial event in which a limited number of oral bacterial species have the required properties to participate An in vitro evaluation of the ability of ozone to kill a strain of Enterococcus faecalis.


Photophysical, photochemical, and photobiological characterization of methylene blue formulations for light-activated root canal disinfection. Investigations have shown either antimicrobial success 9 or failure 51130 of intracanal medicaments on bacterial biofilm, as well as the presence of biofilm on the entire external root apex surfaces in teeth with pulp necrosis and radiographically visible periapical lesions In order to develop new treatments to eradicate E.

In vitro studies Studies performed in animals Studies related only to microbial identification Studies not related to the efficacy of intracanal medicaments on endodontic biofilm Studies related to the periapical biofilm Studies related to the non-endodontic biofilm Studies only with abstract or with no available abstract Literature reviews Case reports.

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. The selected articles were identified from titles, abstracts and full-text articles by two independent reviewers, considering the tabulated inclusion and exclusion criteria. 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: Susceptibility of oral bacterial biofilms to antimicrobial Agents.

Inclusion criteria In vivo studies, in humans. The focus on answering clinical questions can be structured by means of problem, intervention, comparison and outcome.


The requirement intracabal its development includes studies in human subjects with definite clinical issues, using a critical longitudinal analysis of published articles.

Biofilms can intracaanal facilitate processing and uptake of nutrients, cross-feeding one species providing nutrients to anotherremoval of potentially harmful metabolic products often rrview by other bacteria as well as the development of an appropriate physicochemical environment such as a properly lowering the oxidation reduction potential.


Bactericidal effect of Nd: Please review our privacy policy. This fact limited the performance of a meta-analysis. Response to alkaline stress by root canal bacteria in biofilms. J Biomed Mater Res A. In this context, it is important to make a critical analysis of therapeutic protocols for the management of bacterial biofilm.

A major advantage is the protection that the biofilm provides to colonizing species from microorganisms competing for environmental factors, such as host defense mechanisms, and from potentially toxic substances in the environment, such as lethal chemicals or antibiotics.


The irrigation solutions tested for 20 min were intracanall sufficient to inactivate E. Bacteria recovered from teeth with apical periodontitis after antimicrobial endodontic treatment.

Microbial status of apical root canal system of human mandibular first molars with primary apical periodontitis after one-visit-endodontic treatment. Longitudinal studies signalize that there is yet no accurate solution to eliminate or disrupt the root canal bacterial biofilm.

Essential elements of evidenced-based endodontics: Identification and localization of extraradicular biofilm-forming bacteria associated with refractory endodontic pathogens. For the electronic search strategy the terms presented in Table 1 were used as keywords in several combinations. Yag laser irradiation of the microbiological apical biofilm. The variations observed in these clinical isolates suggested that biofilm formation might be an important factor when considering the virulence phenotype of endodontic strains in general.

The search retrieved 91 related articles, of which 8. In accordance with this study, other investigations also recovered microorganisms from teeth with endodontic infection after antimicrobial endodontic therapy 6
