AIM To investigate the ability of three rotary nickel-titanium instruments and hand instrumentation to remove gutta-percha and sealer. METHODOLOGY Sixty freshly extracted human single-rooted teeth, each with one root canal, were instrumented with K-files and filled using cold lateral compaction of gutta-percha and AH Plus (Dentsply Detrey, Konstanz,(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the removability of canal fillings performed by using current methods during re-treatment with rotary instruments. Seventy-two freshly extracted human anterior teeth with single straight root canals were instrumented with Mtwo rotary files. The teeth were randomly divided into 4 obturation groups of 18 specimens(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)
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)
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)
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)
INTRODUCTION This study measured the shear bond strength of conventional glass ionomer cements (GICs; Ketac Molar Easymix and Fuji IX) bonded to white mineral trioxide aggregate (WMTA) that had been allowed to set for 2 different time intervals. METHODS Forty-eight WMTA specimens were prepared; half were stored for 45 minutes, and the remaining 24(More)
OBJECTIVE This study compared a computerised device (the Wand) with a conventional syringe in terms of the pain of needle insertion and injection during inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) block injection. METHODS AND MATERIALS The subjects were 40 patients between the ages of 18 and 30 years requiring local anaesthesia for dental restoration in the mandible.(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)
