Abstract

Antimicrobial effects and cytotoxicity of a new quarternaryammonium endodontic antiseptic solution were evaluated and compared with those of sodium hypochlorite and iodine-potassium iodide using in vitro techniques. Iodine-potassium iodide was the least cytotoxic and had the highest antimicrobial effect. Although the antimicrobial effects of the quarternary ammonium solution were higher than those of sodium hypochlorite, its cytotoxicity and cytotoxicity-antimicrobial quotient were also higher than those of sodium hypochlorite.
