Biocompatibility and bioactivity of calcium silicate based endodontic sealers in human dental pulp cells.

ABSTRACT Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) is a calcium silicate-based material. New sealers have been developed based on calcium silicate as MTA Fillapex and MTA Plus. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate biocompatibility and bioactivity of these two calcium silicate-based sealers in culture of humandental pulp cells (hDPCs). MATERIAL AND METHODS: The cells […]

In Vitro Biocompatibility and Oxidative Stress Profiles of Different Hydraulic Calcium Silicate Cements

Abstract Introduction: MTA Plus is a new calcium silicate cement with unknown cytotoxicity characteristics. The objectives of this study were to examine the effect of MTA Plus on the viability, apoptosis/necrosis profile, and oxidative stress levels of rat odontoblast-like cells. Methods: MDPC-23 cells were exposed to gray and white MTA Plus (GMTAP, WMTAP), gray and […]
