However, additional delivery and activation methods are needed to clean and disinfect areas beyond the main root canal. Neither the entrapment of air bubbles in the apical part of the root canal (’apical vapor lock’) nor the surface tension of irrigants are limiting irrigant penetration during syringe irrigation.
