Delivery Of Antimicrobials For Root Canal Treatment

We are interested in investigating the prolonged and sustained kinetics of release of antimicrobials for use in endodontics. In particular:

  • Chlorhexidine (CHX): recommended for root canal irrigation or infected teeth because of its wide spectrum of antimicrobial activity, and its ability to bind to dental hard tissues with prolonged release.
  • Eugenol and its derivates: commonly employed in dentistry as temporary filling material and root canal sealer.
