Biocompatibility and bioactivity of calcium silicate based endodontic sealers in human dental pulp cells

ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION: Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) is a calcium silicate-based material. New sealers have been developed based on calcium silicate as MTA Fillapex and MTA Plus. The aim of this study was to evaluate biocompatibility and bioactivity of these two calcium silicate-based sealers in culture of humandental pulp cells (hDPCs). METHODS: The cells were isolated […]

Human dental pulp cells response to mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and MTA Plus: cytotoxicity and gene expression analysis

ABSTRACTINTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to investigate the cytotoxicity, osteogenic bioactivity and mRNA expression of osteogenic markers of bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2), osteocalcin (OC) and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) induced by the extracts of set MTA Plus (MTA P) (Avalon Biomed Inc. Bradenton, FL, USA) in comparison with MTA (Angelus, Londrina, PR, Brazil) […]
