In Vitro Osteogenic/Dentinogenic Potential of an Experimental Calcium Aluminosilicate Cement

Abstract Introduction: Calcium aluminosilicate cements are fast-setting, acid-resistant, bioactive cements that may be used as root-repair materials. This study examined the osteogenic/dentinogenic potential of an experimental calcium aluminosilicate cement (Quick-Set) by using a murine odontoblast-like cell model. Methods: Quick-Set and white ProRoot MTA (WMTA) were mixed with the proprietary gel or deionized water, allowed to […]

The setting characteristics of MTA Plus in different environmental conditions

Abstract Aim: Characterization and assessment of the hydration reaction of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) Plus exposed to different environmental conditions. Methodology: The specific surface area, surface morphology and characterization of un-hydrated MTA Plus (Avalon Biomed Inc. Bradenton, FL, USA) were investigated. The specific surface area was compared with that of ProRoot MTA (Dentsply International, Tulsa […]
