Abstract

MTAD as a chelating agent , followed by final flush with saline as irrigant is better demineralizing agent than 17% EDTA. Both the irrigants have to be flushed out of the canal within 10 minutes especially MTAD, since it causes severe erosion of radicular dentin after 10 minutes.Saline which is routinely used as an endodontic irrigant has no demineralizing effect other than flushing out the smear layer.
