Is electrosurgery “self sterilizing”?

No. Bacterium and fungi are volatized along with target tissue, which is helpful in any case but particularly in pulpotomy, and fulguration can be used to address remnant bacteria in enucleated cysts. However, viruses can survive electrosurgery as well as in laser or thermal cautery interventions. Autoclaving the electrodes before use is required.
