Enterococci are a frequent cause of wide variety of infections in humans. Enterococcus faecalis has been isolated from endodontic infections like obturated root canals with chronic apical periodontitis. The organism can survive extreme challenges. In this article, we discuss the changed taxonomy, identification characters, pathogenesis of endodontic infections by Enterococcus faecalis and its antimicrobial resistance pattern. Knowledge about the organism may help to prevent endodontic treatment failures attributed to this organism.
