Endodontic treatment is a predictable procedure with high success rates.

Success depends on a number of factors, including appropriate instrumentation, successful irrigation and decontamination of the root-canal space to the apices and in areas such as isthmuses. These steps must be followed by complete obturation of the root canals, and placement of a coronal seal, prior to restorative treatment.

  • List and describe the challenges for successful endodontic treatment.
  • List and describe the different types of  root canal  irrigants, their relative advantages and disadvantages.
