Fracture Resistance of Teeth with Simulated Perforating Internal Resorption Cavities Repaired with Different Calcium Silicate-based Cements and Backfilling Materials

Abstract: This study assessed the fracture resistance (FR) of teeth with simulated perforating internal resorption cavities repaired with different calcium silicate-based cements (CSCs) and backfilling materials. METHODOLOGY: Ninety-six mandibular premolar teeth were used. Twelve of the teeth were assigned as negative control group. Remaining roots were instrumented with rotary files, and standardized internal resorption cavities […]

Increasing Use of Bioceramics in Endodontics: A Narrative Review

Abstract: Successful outcomes of root canal treatment, in addition to a multitude of factors, also depends on the prevention of reinfection of the root canal space. The ultimate goal of root canal treatment is prevention or healing of apical periodontitis. The use of biologically active materials to seal root canal systems has been extensively proposed […]
