Biofilms are identified as one of the earliest ecosystems on this planet. they are composed of aggregates of microbial cells enclosed in a self-produced matrix adherent to a floor. Root canal biofilms are complicated polymicrobial systems adherent to the basis canal surface which are shaped via microorganisms invading the pulpal area of tooth. crucial histopathological studies posted numerous a long time in the past first mentioned the presence of adherent cells on root canal surfaces. however, it was not until the introduction of advanced microscopy and molecular biology strategies that they were recognized to be the dominant shape of microbial lifestyles within the root canal system. 

in addition, it turned into simplest within the beyond decade that root canal infections were stated to be biofilm infections. eventually, recent studies have shown that root canal biofilms are related to continual endodontic infections and as such are probably to be significant contributing elements figuring out the outcome of endodontic remedy. Concerted efforts to study root canal biofilms have been made within the past decade resulting inside the booklet of observational and experimental studies that detail the morphology and biology of these structures in infected root canals. 

similarly to confirming that micro organism in root canals do no longer exist in unfastened-floating planktonic states as formerly assumed, this new statistics on root canal biofilm infections has furnished an possibility to reevaluate traditional clinical protocols and improve endodontic therapeutic measures.
