The preparation and thorough cleaning of the root canal system are crucial components of endodontic therapy carried out using mechanical and chemical means.Some of the most popular endodontic irrigant solutions include sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), and chlorhexidine (CHX). Through the ages, irrigation and root canal system activation methods have been improved in order to increase the depth of penetration of sodium hypochlorite solutions into root canals. In order to assess and analyse the penetration depth of 5.25% NaOCl into dentinal tubules utilising various irrigant activation procedures, this study was conducted.
