EDTA helps to maintain all kinds of cosmetics, such as creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, etc., and prevent the growth of bacteria.
EDTA also has a laboratory application where it is widely used to remove metal ions: in biochemistry and molecular biology, ion depletion is commonly used to inactivate metal dependent enzymes as a test for their reactivity or to suppress DNA or protein damage.
EDTA can also be used to test the bioavailability of heavy metals in sediments.
Dentists and endodontists use EDTA solutions to remove inorganic contaminants (the smear layer) and lubricate the canals in endodontics. This procedure helps prepare the root canals for filling.
Moreover, EDTA solutions with the addition of surfactant loosen calcifications inside the root canal and enable instrumentation (canal shaping) and facilitate apical movement of the file in the tight / calcified root canal towards the apex.
