Effects of calcium silicate-based materials on collagen matrix integrity of mineralized dentin

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Calcium silicate-based materials (CSMs) are used in various endodontic procedures. The present study examined whether prolonged contact of mineralized dentin with recently commercialized versions of these materials adversely affects dentin collagen matrix integrity. METHODS: Dentin slabs prepared from extracted human third molars (7 × 3 × 0.3 mm) were divided into 3 groups […]

Osteogenic and Angiogenic Response to Calcium Silicate-based Endodontic Sealers

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Calcium silicate-based endodontic sealers are reported to favor the regeneration of periradicular tissues, a process requiring concerted osteogenic and angiogenic events. This study compared 4 calcium silicate-based sealers for the effects of their extracts on osteogenic and angiogenic cell behavior. METHODS: Extracts from ProRoot MTA (Dentsply Tulsa Dental, Tulsa, OK), MTA Plus (Prevest […]
