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 […]

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 […]
