The aim of this study was to compare the apical sealing ability of three different obturation techniques using an electrochemical evaluation and evaluating dye penetration. One hundred and thirty-two maxillary anterior teeth were randomly divided into six groups. There were 20 teeth in each group. The teeth were obturated as follows: Groups 1 and 4 with(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the influence of passive ultrasonic irrigation (PUI) on apical extrusion of irrigating solution. METHODS Twenty freshly extracted maxillary and mandibular incisors with single straight root canals were instrumented with ProTaper rotary files. During final irrigation, the root canals were filled with 2.5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl)(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to evaluate the fracture resistance of retreated roots using different rotary retreatment systems. METHODS Forty eight freshly extracted human canine teeth with single straight root canals were instrumented sequentially increasing from size 30 to a size 55 using K-files whit a stepback technique. The teeth were randomly(More)
UNLABELLED During mechanical preparation of the post space, the root canal filling may be twisted or vibrated, depending on several factors associated with the preparation technique and quality of filling. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of immediate and delayed post space preparation on the integrity of the apical seal.(More)
Dens invaginatus is a well-recognized phenomenon, and its endodontic treatment poses a challenge, especially for peri-invagination lesions with vital pulp. Here we describe the outcome of conservative treatment and follow-up in a case of type III dens invaginatus. Cone-beam computed tomography was used for diagnosis and follow-up. Pulp vitality was(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible effects of electrical stimulation (ES) of tooth on penicillin-induced epileptiform activity in rats. Experiment was realized on 24 adult male Sprague Dawley rats. Rats were assigned three groups [stimulation group (SG), penicillin group (PG), and penicillin+stimulation group (PSG)]. In SG, ES was only(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the possible neurotoxic effects of 3 root canal sealers (RCSs) (AH Plus, GuttaFlow, iRoot SP) on cultured rat trigeminal ganglion (TG) neurons. MATERIAL AND METHODS Primary cultures of TG neurons were obtained from 1 to 2-day old rats. Freshly mixed RCSs were incubated in sterile phosphate buffered(More)
