The prognosis of endodontically treated teeth depends on, among other things, the proper disinfection of the root canal system. The removal of bacteria, toxins, and other inflammatory by-products allows the healing of the periapical tissues. This chapter discusses contemporary methods used to remove or inactivate the bacterial load of the root canal space.
