$13.00 – $25.00
This lecture will cover the fundamentals of biofilm-mediated infection, root canal irrigation dynamics and current status of root canal irrigation strategies.
Microbial biofilm are communities of bacteria that are considered to be key therapeutic target in the treatment of endodontic disease. Bacterial biofilm are particularly tolerant to antimicrobials and presents distinctly different host immune response. This lecture will cover the fundamentals of biofilm-mediated infection, root canal irrigation dynamics and current status of root canal irrigation strategies.
• Will learn the basics of biofilm-mediated infections and their role in disease process.
• Will understand the challenges involved in root canal disinfection
• Will learn the steps to improve efficacy of root canal disinfection
