Ninety-six human molars were accessed. After flattening of the occlusal surface and removal of the apical two-thirds of the roots, the remaining canal space was instrumented by conventional methods. The teeth were divided into six groups of 15 teeth with three positive and three negative controls. The six experimental groups were based on the material used to restore the pulp chamber and remaining canal space: 1, gutta-percha with sealer; 2, amalgam; 3, IRM; 4, light-cured posterior composite… CONTINUE READING
