Influence of different vehicles on the pH of calcium hydroxide pastes.
The main known benefit of calcium hydroxide as an intracanal medicament lies in the bactericidal effect conferred by its pH. The objective of this work was to determine the influence of the vehicleExpand

Calcium hydroxide's association with different vehicles: In vitro action on some dentinal components.
OBJECTIVE Calcium hydroxide, Ca(OH)(2), is a common intracanal medicament. Ca(OH)(2) powder can be mixed with different vehicles and used as a paste for temporary intracanal treatment. The vehicleExpand

Changes in pH of irrigating solutions after contact with human root dentin.
The aim of this study was to analyze the in vitro behavior of the pH of different irrigating solutions, used alone or consecutively, after contact with extracted human teeth. Mandibular humanExpand
Effect of calcium hydroxide pastes on uninstrumented canal wall studied with scanning electron microscopy.
Calcium hydroxide (Calpha(OH)2) paste has been used as a root canal dressing for long time and promotes healing of vital pulp and periapical tissues. The aim of this study was to evaluate theExpand
