The root canals of 30 extracted human teeth with single canals were prepared biomechanically with hand instruments using a flaring technique. Three different irrigation regimes were used, with and without ultrasonic activation of a root canal file. The six irrigation sequences used in this study were as follows: Savlon, Savlon with ultrasound,(More)
Freshly mixed polymerized Hydron root canal filling material, fully set AH26 and Teflon were implanted in the quadriceps muscle of guinea pigs and assessed histologically at 2 days, 1, 2, 3, 12 and 26 weeks after implantation. All materials were characterized by peri-implant fibrous connective tissue capsule formation. Von Kossa-positive calcific material(More)
Teflon tubes containing freshly mixed, polymerized Hydron root canal filling material, fully set AH26 or Teflon were implanted into the mandible of guinea pigs and assessed histologically at 2 days, 1, 2, 4, 12 and 26 weeks. None of the materials tested elicited signs of overt or significant tissue damage, and polymerized Hydron was assessed to be as(More)
