INTRODUCTION The study compared Twisted File (TF) with 3 traditionally manufactured systems to determine whether changes in the manufacturing process improved the cyclic fatigue resistance. METHODS Four rotary file systems, (1) ProFile (PF), (2) Mtwo, (3) K3, and (4) TF, were tested in artificial canals with 45° and 90° angles of curvature. Ten(More)
AIM This study compares the effect of formalin and autoclaving the tooth samples by evaluating microleakage in-vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five extracted human permanent incisor teeth were taken and randomly divided into three groups (with different methods of storage and disinfection) with 15 teeth each: Group 1: Control-extracted teeth in this(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the reasons given for not seeking treatment by problem alcohol users who live close to a community outreach de-addiction center. METHOD Consecutive households in the community were contacted, and inquiry identified 495 male family members who were using alcohol, 163 of whom reported use of alcohol in the previous year. Of(More)
BACKGROUND Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) fulfills many of the ideal properties of the root-end filling material. However, its low cohesive property often makes it difficult to handle. Biodentine, new calcium-silicate-based cement has been developed to improve some MTA drawbacks such as its difficult handling property and long-setting time. AIM The(More)
Craving is considered to play an important role in the persistence of drug use and relapse of drug use. Very few studies have looked into the subjective experience of this phenomena. This study attempts to study craving comprehensively as described by the subjects. In the present study 30 patients of heroin dependence syndrome were assessed (using a(More)
Successful endodontic treatment depends upon the clinician's knowledge and ability to manage aberrant anatomy. The mandibular canine normally comprises one canal and one root but 15% may have two canals with one or two foramina and even less frequent may have two roots. This paper presents a case report of bilateral mandibular canine having two root canals(More)
A set of Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes of Schiff base have been synthesized by one pot condensation reaction of 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzophenone with 1,3-diaminopropane in 1:2:1 molar ratio. They have been characterized by elemental analysis, conductance measurement, thermal analysis (TGA/DTA), FT-IR, (1)H-NMR, EPR spectra, ESI-MS and electronic(More)
The Bcl2 family of proteins is capable of switching the apoptotic machinery by directly controlling the release of apoptotic factors from the mitochondrial outer membrane. They have 'pro' and 'anti'-apoptotic subgroups of proteins which antagonize each other's function; however a detailed atomistic understanding of their mechanisms based on the dynamical(More)
INTRODUCTION Antimicrobial resistance has been a global concern. Currently, interest has been focused on exploring antimicrobial properties of plants and herbs. One such botanical is Allium sativum (garlic). AIM To evaluate the antimicrobial activity of fresh juice of garlic. MATERIALS AND METHODS Varying concentrations of fresh garlic juice (FGJ) were(More)
AIMS The study was aimed to acquire better understanding of C-shaped canal systems in mandibular second molar teeth through a clinical approach using sophisticated techniques such as surgical operating microscope and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 42 extracted mandibular second molar teeth with fused roots and(More)
