AIM To evaluate antibiofilm activity against Enterococcus faecalis, pH and solubility of AH Plus, Sealer 26, Epiphany SE, Sealapex, Activ GP, MTA Fillapex (MTA-F) and an experimental MTA-based Sealer (MTA-S). METHODOLOGY Sealer samples were manipulated and stored for 2 or 7 days. Prepared sealers were evaluated by a modified direct contact test (DCT) for(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the histopathologic response of periapical tissues after root canal treatment of necrotic dog teeth with chronic apical periodontitis by using 2 calcium hydroxide-based root canal dressings and 2 root canal sealers. STUDY DESIGN Seventy-eight root canals were instrumented by using 5.25% sodium(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to assess the cleaning capacity of the Protaper system using motor-driven or manual instrumentation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten mandibular molars were randomly separated into 2 groups (n = 5) according to the type of instrumentation performed, as follows: Group 1 - instrumentation with rotary nickel-titanium (Ni-Ti) files(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro obturation quality of four filling methods: active lateral condensation, a modification of Tagger's hybrid technique, ENAC ultrasound technique and the Microseal technique. The study was performed on one hundred and sixteen single-rooted human teeth, divided into four groups of twenty nine teeth, embedded(More)
AIM To analyse the thermoplasticity of several endodontic filling materials using the Obtura II System at different temperature settings. METHODOLOGY The following materials based on gutta-percha: Regular Obtura (OBT), Obtura Flow 150 (OBT F), Endo Flow (EDF), Odous (ODO) and the synthetic thermoplastic polymer material Resilon (RE) were heated using the(More)
AIM To assess the dimensional characteristics, flexibility and torsional behaviour of nickel-titanium retreatment instruments. METHODOLOGY Using image analysis software and high-resolution digital images, the instrument length, tip angle, diameter at 3 mm from the tip and the distance between the blades (pitch length) of the following eight instruments(More)
Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) accelerates tissue repair. Mast cells induce the proliferation of fibroblasts and the development of local fibrosis. The objective of this study was to quantify fibrosis rate and mast cells in connective tissue after endodontic sealer zinc oxide and eugenol (ZOE) was implanted and submitted to LLLT, immediately after implant(More)
As compared with continuous rotary systems, reciprocating motion is believed to increase the fatigue resistance of NiTi instruments. We compared the cyclic fatigue and torsional resistance of reciprocating single-file systems and continuous rotary instrumentation systems in simulated root canals. Eighty instruments from the ProTaper Universal, WaveOne,(More)
The objective of this paper was to evaluate the physicochemical properties of calcium silicate cements with different chemical compositions, associated with radiopacifying agents. Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) Angelus, calcium silicate cement with additives (CSC), and resinous calcium silicate cement (CSCR) were evaluated, with the addition of the(More)
Objective To evaluate solubility and sealing ability of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) and root-end filling materials. Material and Methods The materials evaluated were: MTA, Calcium Silicate Cement with zirconium oxide (CSC/ZrO2), and zinc oxide/eugenol (ZOE). Solubility test was performed according to ANSI/ADA. The difference between initial and final(More)
