Mineral trioxide aggregate with anti-washout gel – properties and microstructure

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: One of the problems encountered clinically when using mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) as a root-end filling material is washout immediately after placement. A novel MTA is supplied with an anti-washout gel that replaces the mixing water. The aim of this research was to characterize and assess the properties of a novel MTA mixed […]

Push-out bond strength of MTA with antiwashout gel or resins

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: This study’s aim was to make an assessment of the push-out bond strength of four MTA-based formulations for use as root-end filling materials. METHODS: MTA Plus mixed with (i) water (‘MTA-W’); (ii) a proprietary water-based antiwashout gel (‘MTA-AW’); (iii) Superbond C&B chemically curing resin (‘MTA-Chem’); and (iv) Heliobond light-curing resin (‘MTA-Light’) was tested.

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 […]

Mineral trioxide aggregate with anti-washout gel – Properties and microstructure

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 set completely […]

A quantitative method for determining the anti-washout characteristics of cement-based dental materials including mineral trioxide aggregate

Abstract: Aim: To introduce and assess a novel method for measuring washout resistance of cement-based dental materials, including mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), to qualitatively verify the results with a clinical simulation and to evaluate the washout resistance of a new root-end filling material. Methodology: A method for assessment of washout resistance of root-end filling materials was developed by adapting the CRD-C 661-06 […]
