Direct contact with mineral trioxide aggregate activates and differentiates human dental pulp cells.


INTRODUCTION Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is routinely used for pulp-capping procedures. However, little is known about its direct interaction with the cells or whether MTA is capable of releasing soluble factors that could help in differentiating cells. There have been no previous studies showing this aspect of MTA. Hence, the aim of this study was to… (More)
