The aim of this study was to histopathologically examine the biocompatibility of the high-copper amalgam, intermediate restorative material (IRM), mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), and MTA mixed with chlorhexidine (CHX). This study was conducted to observe the rat subcutaneous connective tissue reaction to the implanted tubes filled with amalgam, IRM, MTA,(More)
OBJECTIVE Retreatment of a root canal in the case of infection requires complete removal of previous filling material. This study evaluated the efficacy of 3 techniques in removing laterally compacted Resilon/Epiphany and gutta-percha/AH Plus from straight and curved canals during retreatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Extracted human teeth (90 maxillary(More)
BACKGROUND The authors conducted a study to assess the influence of radiotherapy on the apical sealing ability of one recently introduced resin-based root canal sealer and two sealers that have been in use for several years. METHODS The authors divided 90 human maxillary anterior teeth into three groups according to the type of root canal sealer used and,(More)
This study was designed to compare the leakage allowed by different obturation materials, using a fluid-transport method. Sixty-six single-rooted human anterior teeth were fully instrumented by using the "step-back" technique and irrigated with 5.25% sodium hypochlorite. The smear layer was removed by washing in 10 ml of 17% EDTA. The specimens were(More)

The aim of a retrograde filling material is to fill the apical canal space and to obtain a hermetic seal between the periodontium and the root canal system. Several materials have been suggested for root-end filling including: amalgam, gutta-percha, zinc oxide-eugenol cements, glass ionomer cement, gold foil pellets, Cavit, composite resin and mineral(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the anxiety levels of patients attending a university oral diagnosis clinic. Avoidance, felt physiologic responses, and the most fear-producing stimuli of dental treatment were also evaluated. METHOD AND MATERIALS A total of 1,437 patients were asked to complete a questionnaire consisting of the Dental(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of immediate and delayed post space preparation on the sealing ability of a new root canal filling material. STUDY DESIGN Seventy-two extracted teeth were prepared and obturated with gutta-percha/AH-Plus and Resilon/Epiphany sealer by the lateral compaction technique. The teeth were divided(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to assess the apical sealing ability of Resilon obturation material. METHODS AND MATERIALS Forty-two single rooted extracted human teeth were selected and randomly divided into three groups. They were obturated using lateral condensation with gutta-percha and AH 26/AH plus and Resilon; also, 12 root canals were used as(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to test a new root canal sealer (Epiphany) and 5 other root canal sealers (Diaket, Endomethasone, AH 26, Sealapex, Sultan) for their antimicrobial effect on Enterococcus faecalis. MATERIALS AND METHODS The antimicrobial effect of 6 root canal sealers was tested by the agar diffusion method. The freshly mixed sealers were(More)
