Physical and chemical properties of new-generation endodontic materials

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), white and gray, has many uses in endodontic therapy but is limited by its difficult handling characteristics. This study compared the physical and chemical properties of white MTA (WMTA) with three experimental root-end filling materials: Capasio (Primus Consulting, Bradenton, FL), Ceramicrete-D (Tulsa Dental Specialties/Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, IL), and […]

Remineralization of artificial dentinal caries lesions by biomimetically modified mineral trioxide aggregate

ABSTRACT Fluoride-releasing restorative materials are available for remineralization of enamel and root caries. However, remineralization of dentin is more difficult than remineralization of enamel due to the paucity of apatite seed crystallites along the lesion surface for heterogeneous crystal growth. Extracellular matrix proteins play critical roles in controlling apatite nucleation/growth in collagenous tissues. This study […]

Effects of an experimental calcium aluminosilicate cement on the viability of murine odontoblast-like cells

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Quick-setting calcium aluminosilicate cement with improved washout resistance is a potential substitute for calcium silicate cements in endodontics. This study examined the effect of an experimental calcium aluminosilicate cement (Quick-Set; Primus Consulting, Bradenton, FL) on the viability of odontoblast-like cells. METHODS: The biocompatibility of Quick-Set and white ProRoot MTA (WMTA; Dentsply Tulsa Dental […]

In vitro osteogenic/dentinogenic potential of an experimental calcium aluminosilicate cement

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 […]

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 odontoblastlike cells. METHODS: MDPC-23 cells were exposed to gray and white MTA Plus (GMTAP, WMTAP), gray and […]

Dentinal Tubule Penetration of Tricalcium Silicate Sealers

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: The treatments for which mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA)-based materials can be used in dentistry are expanding. Smaller particle size and easier handling properties have allowed the advent of tricalcium silicate sealers including EndoSequence BC Sealer (Brasseler USA, Savannah, GA), QuickSet2 (Avalon Biomed, Bradenton, FL), NeoMTA Plus (Avalon Biomed), and MTA Fillapex (Angelus, Londrina, […]

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 […]

Bioactive tri/dicalcium silicate cements for treatment of pulpal and periapical tissues.

Abstract: Over 2500 articles and 200 reviews have been published on the bioactive tri/dicalcium silicate dental materials. The indications have expanded since their introduction in the 1990s from endodontic restorative and pulpal treatments to endodontic sealing and obturation. Bioactive ceramics, based on tri/dicalcium silicate cements, are now an indispensable part of the contemporary dental armamentarium […]

Histology of NeoMTA Plus and Quick-Set2 in Contact with Pulp and Periradicular Tissues in a Canine Model.

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to compare the healing of pupal and periapical tissues in dogs after exposure to NeoMTA Plus and Quick-Set2 after pulpotomy and root-end surgery procedures. METHODOLOGY: Seventy-two teeth (36 for each procedure) in 6 beagle dogs received pulpotomy or root-end surgery using either NeoMTA Plus or Quick-Set2. The dogs […]
