Background: The aim of the study was to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of the-potassium-titanyl-phosphate - the KTP laser and ozone in of primary root canals. Materials and Methods: Sixty primary incisor teeth were selected. The specimens were inoculated with 10 mL Enterococcus faecalis (E. faecalis). Groups: The KTP laser (1,5 W); gaseous ozone (150 s); sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl); saline group. Sterile paper points used to sample bacteria from the canals to tubes containing 5 mL of brain heart infusion broth. Then, 10 mL suspension was incubated in culture media for 24 h. Data were analyzed statistically using Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney U-test. Results: There were statistically significant differences between all groups (P < 0.05). Complete sterilization was achieved in the 2.5% NaOCl group. The number of bacteria were significantly reduced in experimental groups in comparison to the saline group. Conclusion: The KTP laser and ozone application provided a significant antibacterial effect in primary root canals; however, 2.5% NaOCl was superior.
