Sodium hypochlorite (NaOC1) is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent effective against bacteria, spores, yeast and viruses. It provides 100% bacterial reduction as it contains 50 ppm available chlorine at 6.7-10.7 pH at 200 C in one minute. 5.25% NaOCl solution has a pH 11-12 and it provides immediate antibacterial action during root canal irrigation. 2.5-3% solution has a pH of 11-12, which also gives good results. Grossman (1978) and others observed healing of large periapical lesions by nonsurgical methods using NaOC1 solution, though the exact mechanism of healing is not clear but it is proved that NaOC1 has good action against bacteria.
