  author={Danuchit Banomyong and Lalida Ongchavalit and Kallaya Yanpiset},
Materials and methods: L929 cells were sub-cultured into 96-well plates with 100 μl (1 x 10 cel ls) per well. Four formulas of the oligomer-based sealer (namely F68, F71, F72 and F75) and RealSeal SE sealer were prepared. Sealer rod (0.2 g) was produced in a polyethylene tube and set in a self-curing mode at room temperature for 7 days. Elute of a sealer rod was prepared and diluted with MEM medium at 1 (no dilution), 10, 100 and 1,000 times. Next, 100 μl of elute was added into a well, 16…

In vitro antibacterial activity of oligomer-based and calcium silicate-based root canal sealers

The root canal sealers showed different antimicrobial activity against E. faecalis after setting, and antimicrobial effects of AH Plus and BC sealers gradually decreased within 24 h and 3 days afterSetting, respectively.



Effect of time of extraction on the biocompatibility of endodontic sealers with primary human fibroblasts.

Evaluating the effects of different times of extraction on the cytotoxicity of six representatives of different root canal sealer groups with human gingival fibroblasts indicated that GuttaFlow was the least cytotoxic sealer tested.

Cytotoxicity testing of endodontic sealers: a new method.

The results show that the ISO standards may strongly over-evaluate the cytotoxicity of the endodontic sealers, emphasize the difference among the sealer, and may clinically correspond to a large overfilling.

Susceptibility of a polycaprolactone-based root canal-filling material to degradation. III. Turbidimetric evaluation of enzymatic hydrolysis.

The susceptibility of Resilon to biotic biodegradation by two hydrolases, lipase PS and cholesterol esterase, was investigated with a turbidimetric approach by measuring the optical density reductions in aqueous emulsions containing dissolved, filtered, surfactant-stabilized polymeric components of Resilus.

Periapical reactions to calcium hydroxide-containing sealers and AH 26 in monkeys.

This sealer has not yet been tested in infected cases and its ability to be resorbed, which is an advantage when it precedes replacement by calcified tissue, may become a disadvantage if it is not followed by apical obliteration.

Cytotoxicity of Epiphany and Resilon with a root model.

The cytotoxicity of Resilon +Epiphany, due mainly to Epiphany, decreased after 2 days to reach a level comparable with commonly used root canal sealers.

Susceptibility of a polycaprolactone-based root canal filling material to degradation. I. Alkaline hydrolysis.

Polycaprolactone, a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester, is reportedly susceptible to both alkaline and enzymatic hydrolyzes, and it is possible that enzyme-based biodegradation of Resilon by bacterial/salivary enzymes and endodontically relevant bacteria warrants further investigation.
