      This study tested the efficacy of instrumenting the root canal with 1 ml of 5.25% NaOCl solution between each instrument and final flushing with 20 ml of various solutions or combinations of solutions. The scanning electron microscope showed that a final flush with 10 ml of 17% EDTA buffered to pH 7.7 followed by 10 ml of 5.25% NaOCl solution was the most effective.
