The choice of an irrigating solution for use in infected root canals requires previous knowledge of the microorganisms responsible for the infectious process as well as the properties of different irrigating solutions. Complex internal anatomy, host defenses and microorganism virulence are important factors in the treatment of teeth with asymptomatic apical(More)
AIM To evaluate smear layer removal by different irrigating solutions under ultrasonic agitation. METHODOLOGY Twenty recently extracted mandibular incisors with a single root canal were divided into four equal groups. Three groups were instrumented using the modified double-flared technique, the fourth remained unprepared. Each group was irrigated with(More)
The current World Health Organization classification considers the existence of an undifferentiated unclassifiable category of pleomorphic sarcomas, defined as a group of pleomorphic high-grade sarcomas. Undifferentiated high-grade pleomorphic sarcoma represents about 5% of all soft tissue sarcomas in adults and occurs more commonly in the extremities. In(More)
This aticle sought to evaluate the dentin morphology after irradiation by a Neodymium:Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet (Nd:YAG) laser, using different chemical substances to irrigate radicular canals: distilled water, 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid plus Cetavlon (EDTAC), 1% sodium hypochlorite, and 2% chlorhexidine. Groups were subdivided according to the(More)
AIM The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the cleaning capacity of different auxiliary chemical substances energized with ultrasound in radicular dentin using morphologic analysis. METHODS AND MATERIALS Twenty-eight single-canal, mandibular incisors were prepared with the Hero 642 canal preparation system following the sequence: 25/12, 30/06,(More)
The cleaning capacity of manual and rotary instrumentation techniques in mesial-distal flattened canals was studied by morphometric analysis. Twenty human mandibular incisors were divided into two groups of 10 teeth each: group 1, crown-down technique with rotary instrumentation using ProFile .04; group 2, crown-down technique with manual instrumentation(More)
AIM To evaluate the adhesion of an epoxy-based sealer to human dentine submitted to irradiation with Er : YAG or Nd : YAG laser at various parameters. METHODOLOGY Ninety maxillary canine teeth were sectioned transversely at the cemento-enamel junction and at the root tip to leave an 8-mm-long cylinder. The tooth specimen was centred in a metallic ring (16(More)
The effect of Er:YAG laser application and EDTAC on the adhesion of epoxy resin-based endodontic sealers to human dentin was evaluated in vitro. A total of 99 extracted human maxillary molars with their crowns worn flat were used. The teeth were divided into 3 groups: group 1, the dentin surface received no treatment; group 2, EDTAC was applied to the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of different endodontic materials on root fracture susceptibility. METHODS Seventy-two mandibular incisors were sectioned 1mm below the cementoenamel junction to obtain roots of 12 mm length. Roots were submitted to chemomechanical preparation with the rotary instruments of Profile system. The obturation of root canals(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this in vitro study was to investigate using the scanning electron microscope (SEM) the ultrastructural morphological changes of the radicular dentine surface after irradiation with 980-nm diode laser energy at different parameters and angles of incidence. BACKGROUND DATA There have been limited reports on the effects of diode(More)
