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 […]

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 […]
