Endo Questions for the RWE Faculty:: Ensodontic abcess
This is just an academic bad advice. Most blockage is due to poor instrumentation technique and debris management, not instruments themselves and most definitely not the standard irrigants.
Therefore, crown down protocols and minimizing engagement time while frequently flushing out debris is a criticial part if instrumentation. Irrigation solutions are important for disinfection but more important to post op pain control is instrument motions.
I use water, EDTA and lots of ultrasonics in the first phase and then full strength NaClO during the second phase. In severely infected cases Ca(OH)2 is recommened. Triple AB paste is not nec ssary in most cases when proper instrumentation is acheived.
