Aims: The purpose of the study was to determine the best combination for chemomechanical preparation in primary teeth using two endo file systems (hand and rotary) along with two different irrigants. Materials and Methods: Sixty primary molars indicated for pulpectomy, underwent chemomechanical preparation using endo files (H hand files and rotary Protaper files) and root canal irrigating solutions (Smearclear and QMiX). Samples from root canals were collected before and after the chemomechanical preparation of the canal and were cultured for microbial analysis of Enterococcus faecalis. Results: Endodontic irrigating solutions showed significant differences of effectiveness on the growth inhibition of bacterial strain. The present study confirmed that the in vivo antimicrobial efficacy of QMiX solution was statistically significant when compared to the Smearclear solution. Conclusion: Based on the antimicrobial efficacy observed in the present study, it may be concluded that QMiX has a great potential than Smearclear as an intracanal irrigation solution in primary teeth and rotary preparation may be considered as more efficient and time-saving mechanical preparatory technique in primary molars.
