The long-term success of endodontic treatment is closely linked to adequate cleansing of the endodontic space after root canal shaping, and then proceed to a complete obturation of the complex root canal system

The final goal as well as the long-term prognosis of endodontic treatments depends on how much we have cleaned the endoodntic spaces, therefore irrigation and activation are one of the most important steps in endodontic treatments.
