The setting characteristics of MTA Plus in different environmental conditions

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Characterization and assessment of the hydration reaction of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) Plus exposed to different environmental conditions. METHODS: 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 […]

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.
