Although endodontic irrigants are generally considered to be safe, severe complications can occur during or as a consequence of root canal irrigation. However, no data on the incidence of irrigation incidents could be found. In the following paper, a review is presented on the possible incidents that may occur during root canal irrigation with different irrigation solutions, the sequelae, as well as prevention and therapy of such intra- and post-operative problems.
