Retreatability of 2 mineral trioxide aggregate-based root canal sealers: a conebeam computed tomography analysis

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The retreatability of recent calcium silicate or mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) sealers has not yet been assessed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the removal of 2 MTA-based sealers (MTA Fillapex [Angelus Soluções Odontológicas, Londrina, PR, Brazil] and MTA Plus [Prevest-Denpro, Jammu City, India]) using a rotary retreatment system, considering an […]

The effect of root dentin conditioning protocols on the push-out bond strength of three calcium silicate sealers

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The objective was to compare the effects of irrigation protocols on the push-out bond strength of calcium silicate materials at two different time periods (7-days and 3-months). METHODS: Root canals (n=300) were irrigated with one of the following (n=60): group 1 (3% NaOCl–17% EDTA); group 2 (17% EDTA–3% NaOCl); group 3 (1:1 mixture […]

Effect of root canal irrigating solutions on the compressive strength of tricalcium silicate cements

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of root canal irrigants on the compressive strength of hydraulic tricalcium silicate cements. METHODS: Specimens (n = 60) of tricalcium silicate materials-Group 1: White ProRoot mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), Group 2: NeoMTA Plus, Group 3: White MTA Angelus, and Group 4: Biodentine were […]

Acidic and alkaline chemicals’ influence on a tricalcium silicate-based dental biomaterial

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of five common chemical agents used in root canal preparation (sodium hypochlorite/NaOCl, ethylene diaminetetraacetic acid/EDTA, mixture of sodium hypochlorite and etidronic acid/NaOCl + EA, mixture of EDTA and Chlorhexidine/QMix, or saline) on a commercial tricalcium silicate (MTA Plus). METHODS: Samples were analyzed using […]

Increasing Use of Bioceramics in Endodontics: A Narrative Review

Abstract: Successful outcomes of root canal treatment, in addition to a multitude of factors, also depends on the prevention of reinfection of the root canal space. The ultimate goal of root canal treatment is prevention or healing of apical periodontitis. The use of biologically active materials to seal root canal systems has been extensively proposed […]
