AIM This study aims to evaluate the cytotoxicity of a new fast set highly viscous conventional glass ionomer cement (GIC) with L929 fibroblasts. MATERIALS AND METHODS The cement capsule was mixed and introduced into a paraffin wax mould. After setting, the cement was incubated in Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium. Six replicates of the material extract(More)
INTRODUCTION The attachment and spreading of mammalian cells on endodontic biomaterials are an area of active research. The purpose of this review is to discuss the cell attachment properties of Portland cement (PC)-based materials by using scanning electron microscope (SEM). In addition, methodological aspects and technical challenges are discussed. (More)
AIM To evaluate and compare the microleakage of various restorative materials used as coronal barriers between endodontic appointments. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty extracted human permanent posterior teeth were prepared for standardized access cavities with dimensions of 4 × 4 × 4 mm. The teeth were then randomly divided into four groups; Kalzinol,(More)
Complete debridement and disinfection of the root canal system are fundamental requirements for successful endodontic treatment. Despite the morphological challenges of the internal root anatomy, root canal irrigants play an important role in the optimization of the root canal preparation, which is essentially a chemo-mechanical procedure. Enterococcus(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the cytotoxicity of accelerated-set white MTA (AWMTA) and accelerated-set Malaysian white PC (AMWPC) on stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous teeth (SHED). The test materials were introduced into paraffin wax moulds after mixing with calcium chloride dihydrate and sterile distilled water. Subsequently, the set(More)
White Portland cement (WPC) has generated research interests in the field of endodontics. This study compared between the properties of two formulations of white Portland cement (WPC) of different origin (Malaysia [MA] and Egypt [EG]). WPCs with and without calcium chloride dihydrate were prepared. Scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to evaluate the chemical and biological properties of fast-set white mineral trioxide aggregate (FS WMTA), which was WMTA combined with calcium chloride dihydrate (CaCl2·2H2O), compared to that of WMTA. MATERIALS AND METHODS Surface morphology, elemental, and phase analysis were examined using scanning electron microscope(More)
Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) is one of the most popular materials among the available dental restorative materials. They have desirable properties like direct adhesion to the tooth structure, thermal compatibility [1] and good biocompatibility [2,3]. Despite these advantages, brittleness, low tensile and flexural strengths have limited their use only to(More)
The odontogenic and osteogenic potential of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) and stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous tooth (SHED) have been shown clearly by various in vitro and in vivo studies. The findings are promising and demonstrated that dental tissue engineering can give a new hope to the individuals suffering from tooth loss and dental(More)
