AIM To compare the efficacy of several techniques for the removal of calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)(2)) from root canals. METHODOLOGY The root canals of 24 freshly extracted human mandibular premolars were prepared with ProTaper rotary instruments. The teeth were sectioned longitudinally along the length of the instrumented canals. The roots were subsequently(More)
AIM To compare ex vivo root canal preparation with conventional stainless steel K-files and Hero 642 rotary Ni-Ti instruments. METHODOLOGY Mesiobuccal canals of 20 maxillary first molars (with angles of curvature between 25 degrees and 35 degrees ) were used. After preparation with Hero 642 rotary instruments and stainless steel K-files, the amount of(More)
INTRODUCTION Some improvements have been developed with new generations of nickel-titanium (NiTi) rotary instruments that led to their successful and extensive application in clinical practice. The purpose of this in vitro study was to compare the root canal preparations performed by using GT Series X and Twisted File systems produced by innovative(More)
This study evaluated the clinical and radiographic results of the intentional replantation of periodontally hopeless teeth with combined enamel matrix derivative and demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft therapy. Eleven patients (five female, six male; age range, 13 to 53 years) with 12 periodontally hopeless teeth resulting from extensive alveolar bone(More)
This case report describes the treatment of a horizontal root fracture in a maxillary central incisor (tooth #8) using a triple antibiotic paste and mineral trioxide aggregate. A nonsurgical endodontic treatment was performed to a coronal root canal fragment of tooth #8. During the treatment procedure, 1% sodium hypochlorite solution was used for irrigation(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the push-out bond strength of three calcium silicate cements to dentine after two different irrigation regimes. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred eighty 2-mm-thick root sections were prepared. The sections were divided into three main groups (n = 60). In group A, the sections were immersed in 1 % NaOCl for 3(More)
This case report describes the treatment of a dens invaginatus in a mandibular premolar with large periradicular lesion. A nonsurgical endodontic treatment was performed to tooth #28. During the treatment procedure, calcium hydroxide and a triple antibiotic paste were separately used for intracanal dressing. The apical third of the canal was obturated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the percent gutta-percha-filled area in the apical third of root canals after filling with 2 different root filling techniques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty extracted human lower premolars were instrumented with ProTaper rotary files (Dentsply Maillefer) and then randomly divided into 2 groups of 15 teeth each. The first group was(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the effects of Pro-Argin application on the microhardness of bleached enamel and compared them with those of acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) and casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) applications. METHODS Forty blocks (4 × 4 × 4 mm) were prepared from the facial surfaces of 10 sound bovine(More)
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)
