In-Situ Production Of Root Canal Irrigant
The invention relates to a chair side apparatus for in-situ production of root canal irrigant in the root canal treatment. It produces the irrigant in-vivo that is less toxic and less corrosive. The invention specifies the need of such unit that is easy to use, cheap as compared to other counterparts and comparatively safe. It saves time as it is a self sufficient unit that can produce the irrigant as and when required.
The whole unit consists of two chambers with rods, which are the electrodes preferably made of platinum, the metal at the tip, and three small attachments. The first one contains the membrane, which is proton permeable, the second one is the shutter used to separate the two components after electrolysis so that there is no mixing of the active solutions, and the third plate with a hole is used in place of the shutter during electrolysis. These plates are placed in the two slots in the horizontal block which connects the two compartments. The knobs on the lower side of the two compartments are the outlets for the solution. The top cover of both the compartments is a sliding one, thus allowing access for effective cleaning; it also serves as the inlet for introducing the saline solution. The unit can then be attached to the armof the chair on either side according to the dexterity of the surgeon.
- It produces non toxic chemical irrigant.
- In situ production of root canal irrigant.
- Irrigant are biologically acceptable, non toxic and non corrosive than existing one.
- Very economical therapy.
- It provides a safe and painless treatment

Stage of Developments
The prototype is ready and the feasibility test is going on. There could be various design of the product and can be customized according to the needs. Manufacturers can be easily manufactured it with minimal factory set up.
Currently, the following substances are used as root canal irrigants during the root canal procedure and sold separately in a bottle:
·5.25% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) ·6% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) with surface modifiers for better flow into nooks and crannies
·2% chlorhexidine gluconate (Perioxidina Plus-2)
·0.2% chlorhexidine gluconate plus 0.2% cetrimide (Cetrexidin)
·17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA)
·Framycetin sulfate (Septomixine)
This technology will remove the need of buying these irrigants totally.
