Abstract

Enterococcus faecalis is frequently isolated from both secondary and persistent root canal infections. MTAD is an effective intracanal irrigant, but its bactericidal activity requires improvement. The goal of this study was to investigate whether nisin, an antibacterial peptide, improves the antibacterial and antibiofilm activities of MTAD against E. faecalis clinical isolates.
