OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the sealing ability of root-end filling materials such as mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), Portland cement, and bioaggregate (BA) after irrigation with different solutions. MATERIALS AND METHODS We examined 130 human maxillar central teeth. After cutting the teeth at the cementoenamel junction, the(More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine the dislodgement resistance of AH Plus, MTA Fillapex, and Total Fill BC sealer to root canal dentin walls following placement of calcium hydroxide (CH) or double antibiotic paste (DAP) medicaments. Root canals of 90 single-rooted human mandibular premolar teeth were instrumented with Reciproc rotary(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate fracture resistance of teeth with immature apices treated with coronal placement of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), bioaggregate (BA), and Biodentine. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-one freshly extracted, single-rooted human premolar teeth were used for the study. At first, the root length was(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the present study was to evaluate the frequency of dentinal microcracks observed after root canal preparation with ProTaper Universal (PTU; Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties, Tulsa, OK), ProTaper Gold (PTG; Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties), Self-Adjusting File (SAF; ReDent Nova, Ra'anana, Israel), and XP-endo Shaper (XP; FKG(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare the coronal microleakage intraorifice barrier materials, called CoroSeal (CS), fissur sealant (FS), flowable composite FC, and policarboksilate cement (PC), by using the computerized fluid filtration method. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty freshly extracted, single-canal human maxillary central teeth were(More)
