Endodontic biofilm exist in the form of aggregates and a coaggregate attached by glycocalyx membrane is considered as primary etiology for endodontic infections. The primary goal of endodontic treatment is to eliminate the biofilm from root canal walls which is responsible for endodontic infection.
