(Mixture of Tetracycline, Acid and Detergent) It was introduced in endodontic as a substitute to EDTA to eradicate the smear layer.34 It is a combina- tion of an antibiotic 3 Percent doxycycline, a chelating agent citric acid and a detergent Tween 80.23
A study conducted by Prashant jaju et al concluded that sodium hypochlorite remains to be the gold standard as an endodontic irrigant although they tried a number of new irrigant like MTAD
, tetraclean,electrochemically activated solutions etc.23
