INTRODUCTION The antibacterial activity against Enterococcus faecalis of 2 propolis samples was investigated in a dentin block model, and their effectiveness was compared with that of established endodontic disinfectants, chlorhexidine (CHX) and calcium hydroxide [Ca(OH)(2)]. METHODS Standardized dentin blocks were infected with E. faecalis ATCC 29212.(More)
Salmonella infections lead to several clinical syndromes such as acute gastroenteritis and bacteremia. Less frequent manifestations are extraintestinal focal infections, including urinary tract infections. A 10-month-old boy was admitted to the hospital with recurrent urinary tract infections treated with antibiotics. Salmonella typhimurium was isolated(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the degree of microbial contamination in packaged gutta-percha cones before and during use in clinical conditions. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sealed packages of #15-40 gutta-percha cones were opened under aseptic laboratory conditions. Two gutta-percha cones from each size were randomly drawn and added to tubes(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate tooth discoloration after the use of root canal sealers and the effect of internal bleaching on sealer discoloration. The crowns of 56 incisors were cut and randomly filled with four sealers (n = 14): Pulpispad, AH26, MTA Fillapex, EndoREZ. The colour measurement was taken with a spectrophotometer prior and after(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate some physical and chemical properties of MTA incorporated with antibacterial silver zeolite (SZ). 0%, 0.2% or 2% mass fraction of SZ was added to MTA powder. The amounts of calcium released from the specimen in deionized water were measured with an atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The setting times of the(More)
In pregnant women, the main reservoirs of group B streptococci (GBS) are rectum and urethra. The mother's birth canal and the newborn infant easily contract the organisms from these sites. We studied 100 women and their newborn babies to determine the relation between the maternal carriage and the neonatal group B streptococcal colonization. Vaginal,(More)
The Mycobacteria 7H11 agar medium has ben compared with the Löwenstein-Jensen medium for the growth of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Fifty five strains of M. tuberculosis isolated from different clinical specimens in Sivas have been used in this study. Thirty two of them grew on the Mycobacteria 7H11 agar within ten days but only 26 grew on the(More)
INTRODUCTION This observational study sought to assess the incidence of intraoperative pain (IOP) among patients receiving endodontic treatment and to construct a model for predicting the probability of IOP. METHODS All patients attending the endodontic training clinic at Gazi University, Ankara, Turkey, during the spring term of 2014 were examined (N =(More)
