Introduction: Quick-Set (Primus Consulting, Bradenton, FL) is a calcium aluminosilicate cement that is a potential alternative to mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) with greater acid resistance and faster setting. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of...read more
Portland cement is used in the building industry to make concrete. It is hydraulic and thus it develops its properties well in the presence of moisture. The oral environment is inherently wet, however, all dental materials need a dry field for optimal performance. ...read more
In Vitro Evaluation of Dentinal Tubule Penetration and Biomineralization Ability of a New Root-end Filling Material
Abstract Introduction: Capasio is being developed as a new generation of endodontic material with potential use as a root-end filling material. The aim of this study was to compare the ability of Capasio and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) to penetrate human dentinal...read more
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...read more
Abstract Purposes: This study aimed at evaluation of two different commercially available calcium silicate materials (Biodentineand mineral trioxide aggregate [MTA] Plus) used as dentin substitute. Materials and Methods: Sixty Class II cavities were prepared in...read more
Abstract Introduction: Hydraulic silicate cements such as mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) have many clinical advantages. Newer hydraulic silicate materials have been developed that improve on the limitations of mineral trioxide aggregate such as the long setting time...read more
Abstract Introduction: Prolonged exposure of root dentin to calcium hydroxide alters the fracture resistance of dentin. Calcium silicate–based materials (CSMs) used in endodontics release calcium hydroxide on setting. This study examined whether prolonged contact of...read more
Retreatability of 2 Mineral Trioxide Aggregate-based Root Canal Sealers: A Cone-beam 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 Soluc¸~oes Odontologicas,...read more
Abstract Introduction: Calcium silicate–based materials (CSMs) are used in various endodontic procedures. The present study examined whether prolonged contact of mineralized dentin with recently commercialized versions of these materials adversely affects dentin...read more
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...read more
