INTRODUCTION Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) fulfills many of the ideal properties of a root end filling material and repair material for furcal perforation. However, its low cohesive property often makes it difficult to handle. To improve the handling properties of MTA root canal filling materials, MTA-like cement was made, and calcium lactate gluconate(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this study was to investigate the antibacterial, biocompatibility, and mechanical properties of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) set using a calcium lactate gluconate (CLG) solution. METHODS ProRoot white MTA (WMTA) (Dentsply Tulsa Dental, Tulsa, OK) was used as the control group; MTA-like cement was prepared by mixing(More)
This study demonstrated a chitosan (CS)/polyglutamate (PG) polyelectrolyte complex (PEC) hydrogel combined with spherical hydroxyapatite (HAp) particles as an injectable dermal filler for soft-tissue augmentation. The CS/PG PEC hydrogel with oppositely charged ionic cross-linking, a high gel content, and low degradation rate was introduced as a carrier to(More)
INTRODUCTION The objective of this in vitro study is to evaluate the effective and long-term occlusion of dentinal tubules using a novel calcium lactate phosphate (CLP) based desensitizing agent. METHODS Dentin disks (n = 9) were pre-etched using 1 M lactic acid for 30 s and individually treated with Colgate® Pro-Relief™ paste, CLP paste, and double(More)
