AbstractOrganisms invading root canal systems result in serious pulpal and periapical disease. To eliminate microorganisms and restrain secondary infections, dental materials with antibacterial properties are urgently needed in endodontics. Magnesium is considered as a promising biodegradable and biocompatible implant material. However, there are barely researches about its application in endodontic therapy. This work investigated the in vitro efficacy of magnesium powder against Enterococcus faecalis and Candida albicans compared with a common disinfectant, calcium hydroxide. With Calcium hydroxide served as a comparison it demonstrated the qualified antibacterial and anti-fungus properties of Mg as root canal disinfectant due to its high alkalinity of degradation, and the antimicrobial efficacy enhanced with the decreasing powder size.
