L'utilisation de la chlorhexidine en endodontie : revue systématique des études cliniques

Abstract : Chlorhexidine is a widely used antiseptic in odontology, particularly in periodontology and implantology. In endodontics, sodium hypochlorite and calcium hydroxide are the main irrigant and intracanal dressing, respectively. Several in vitro studies and fewer clinical studies showed the broad-spectrum antimicrobial effect and the substantivity of chlorhexidine, two interesting properties of this substance. Nevertheless, because of its inability to dissolve organic tissue, it can not replace sodium hypochlorite ; and there is no current scientific evidence justifying its superiority to calcium hydroxide for an intracanal dressing use. This systematic review include clinical studies, published between 2015 and 2019, and comparing chlorhexidine to sodium hypochlorite or calcium hydroxide in one or two-visit root canal treatments or retreatments, mostly in permament teeth.
