The relative efficiency of EDTA, sulfuric acid, and mechanical instrumentation, in various combinations, in the enlargement of root canals was tested. When used alone, mechanical filing proved the most efficient method, followed by EDTA, which was four to five times more efficient than sulfuric acid. When mechanical work-up and chemical solutions were combined, EDTA again proved itself much more efficient. Its use in clinical practice is therefore recommended.
