Summary of "Influence of Trigonella foenum graecum seed extract as root canal irrigation agent on root surfaces: A scanning electron microscope/energy dispersive X-ray analysis study."

The purpose of this in vitro study was to investigate the effect of Trigonella foenum graecum seed extract (TFGSE) as a root canal irrigation agent on the surface of instrumented root canals and on changes in the mineral contents of the root dentin. A total of 90 extracted human mature maxillary central incisor teeth with a single root and without root resorption were selected. The specimens were subdivided into five groups according to irrigation protocol groups G0: distilled water (n = 15): G1: Sodium hypochlorite (5.25% NaOCl); G2: 1% TFGSE G3: NaOCl +17% EDTA (3 min); G4: NaOCl+1% TFGSE; G5: 1% TFGSE +17% EDTA. All the roots were sectioned longitudinally into two halves and examined under scanning electron microscope/energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM/EDX) to assess changes in the mineral content of the tooth. Smear layer removal from root canals was evaluated with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). A statistical analysis was performed using the Kruskal-Wallis test. The most effective irrigation protocols in removing smear layer occurred with TFGSE and NaOCl, both with rinsing with 17% EDTA. TFGSE was more effective than NaOCl for removing the smear layer. The results showed the ability of 1% TFGSE to remove the smear layer from the root canals. TFGSE is a promising alternative irrigation agent for root canals.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Preparatory activities in ROOT CANAL THERAPY by partial or complete extirpation of diseased pulp, cleaning and sterilization of the empty canal, enlarging and shaping the canal to receive the sealing material. The cavity may be prepared by mechanical, sonic, chemical, or other means. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1700)

Phase of endodontic treatment in which a root canal system that has been cleaned is filled through use of special materials and techniques in order to prevent reinfection.

Chemicals used mainly to disinfect root canals after pulpectomy and before obturation. The major ones are camphorated monochlorophenol, EDTA, formocresol, hydrogen peroxide, metacresylacetate, and sodium hypochlorite. Root canal irrigants include also rinsing solutions of distilled water, sodium chloride, etc.

A treatment modality in endodontics concerned with the therapy of diseases of the dental pulp. For preparatory procedures, ROOT CANAL PREPARATION is available.

Procedure that involves the removal of infectious products from a root canal space through use of special instruments and fillings. This procedure is performed when root canal treatment fails.
