Brief Summary:
proper disinfection of root canal system before obturation is a must for long term success of endodontic treatment, therefore a proper irrigant is mandatory, therefore investigators are studying the antibacterial effects of 4 different irrgating solutions in root canal treatment of patients diagnosed with necrotic pulps in their mandibular posterior teeth. patients will be recruited from outpatient clinic of the endodontic department in cairo university. endodontic treatment will be carried out as usual and samples from the infected root canals will be collected before and after preparation to be cultivated and analyzed at the laboratories of microbiology of faculty of medicine, cairo university

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. number of colony forming units of bacteria [ Time Frame: 1 week after culture ]
    activity of the irrigating solution against bacteria in the root canal system, the less the number of colony forming units the better the irrigating solution is


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. visual analogue scale [ Time Frame: 1 week postoperatively ]
    pain incidence and intensity after root canal treatment The VAS consists of a10-cm line anchored by two extremes "No pain" and "pain as bad as could be"
