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)
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)
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)
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)
