To compare three methods of intratubular contamination that simulate endodontic infections using confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM).
MATERIAL AND METHODS
Two pre-existing models of dentinal contamination were used to induce intratubular infection (groups A and B). These methods were modified in an attempt to improve the model (group C).… (More)
The antimicrobial effect of ultrasonic agitation of calcium hydroxide (CH) pastes in infected bovine dentin and their penetrability were evaluated using confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) and microbiological culture.
Material and Methods
Fifty-two bovine teeth were infected with Enterococcus faecalis using a new contamination protocol;… (More)
