Background: One of the unfavorable outcomes of endodontic treatment in primary molars is furcal perforation. During treatment, bacterial infection at the site of perforation should be prevented for better prognosis. Aim: This study aims to compare sealing ability of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) Plus™ and Biodentine™ for the repair of furcal perforation in primary molars […]
Objectives: The present study evaluated the indentation depth, storage modulus and biocompatibility of an experimental endodontic putty designed for endodontic perforation repair and direct pulp-capping (NeoPUTTY). The results were compared with the properties associated with the commercially available EndoSequence BC RRM Putty (ES Putty). To read the complete the journal click here.
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 […]
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 […]
ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the bond strength of a new calcium silicate cement, Neo MTA Plus (Avalon Biomed Inc. Bradenton, FL, U.S.A) by comparing ProRoot MTA and Biodentine. METHODS: Sixty dentin slices were instrumented to achieve a diameter of 1.3 mm. Group 1: white ProRoot MTA, group […]
Dentist: Richard Rubinstein Practice location: Farmington, Hills, MI Type of practice: Endodontic This patient was referred for apical microsurgery on a previously treated mandibular left first molar Figure 1: Pre-operative radiograph showing a radiolucency on the distal root of a mandibular left first molar. A limited field CBCT scan was taken to ensure that the […]
