The purpose of this clinical study was to compare the effectiveness of passive ultrasonic irrigation with that of traditional syringe irrigation on the removal of bacteria and endotoxin (lipopolysaccharide [LPS]) from root canals.
Forty teeth with apical periodontitis were randomly allocated into two groups according to the irrigation protocol, passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI, n = 20) and syringe and needle irrigation (NI, n = 20). Microbiological sampling was performed before (S1) and after the root canal preparation (S2), after the tested irrigation protocols (S3). Total bacteria counts were determined by a quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay; and the endotoxin levels by the LAL assay.

The use of HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES, in the frequency range of 20-60 kHz, to cut through or remove tissue. The tissue fragmentation by ultrasonic surgical instruments is caused by mechanical effects not heat as with HIGH-INTENSITY FOCUSED ULTRASOUND ABLATION.
A subfield of acoustics dealing in the radio frequency range higher than acoustic SOUND waves (approximately above 20 kilohertz). Ultrasonic radiation is used therapeutically (DIATHERMY and ULTRASONIC THERAPY) to generate HEAT and to selectively destroy tissues. It is also used in diagnostics, for example, ULTRASONOGRAPHY; ECHOENCEPHALOGRAPHY; and ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, to visually display echoes received from irradiated tissues.
