  author={Kanet Chotvorrarak and K. Yanpiset and D. Banomyong and Ratchapin and Laovanitch Srisatjaluk},
Objective: To evaluate antibacterial effects of root canal sealers, oligomer-based (OB) and calcium silicate (BC) in comparison to epoxy-resin (AH Plus) and zinc oxide-eugenol (ZOE), against Enterococcus faecalis. Materials and Methods: Antibacterial effects of the root canal sealers were evaluated by the modified direct contact method using 96-well plates. Each sealer was filled on the bottom of wells at 1-mm thickness, 20 wells of each sealer. The wells of each group was further divided into… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Bacterial leakage and micro-computed tomography evaluation in round-shaped canals obturated with bioceramic cone and sealer using matched single cone technique
In roundly-prepared canals, the single cone obturation with BCC/BCS was comparable to GP/AH for bacterial leakage at 60 days, and micro-CT showed minimal gaps and voids in all groups at less than 1%. Expand
Comparison of Antimicrobial Efficacy of Four Different Plant Extracts against Cariogenic Bacteria: An In Vitro Study
Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice) extract had potent antibacterial efficacy against S. mutans and L. acidophilus and can be used clinically as an alternative of synthetic drugs used in dentistry. Expand


In vitro antibacterial activities of root-canal sealers by using two different methods.
It was concluded that the technique, time, and ingredients of the tested material can affect the results of the microbiological studies. Expand
In vitro antibacterial activity of endodontic sealers.
All sealers exhibit bactericidal effect when freshly mixed, but only Vcanalare extended this effect until 7 days after setting, while the antimicrobial activity of the tested sealers depends on the time interval between mixing and testing. Expand
Antibacterial activity of calcium hydroxide-containing endodontic sealers on Enterococcus faecalis in vitro.
In 24-hour-old mixtures, ZOE-based sealer showed a more potent antimicrobial activity than calcium hydroxide-containing sealers, whereas SA showed a significantly better antimicrobial effect in the 7-day-old mixture. Expand
In vitro antibacterial activity of a glass ionomer endodontic sealer.
It has been concluded that KE possesses a short-acting very potent and diffusable antibacterial activity, whereas RC extends its effect over 7 days after setting. Expand
Short-term antibacterial activity of root canal sealers towards Enterococcus faecalis.
MCS, AH Plus and Grossman's sealer were effective in reducing the number of cultivable cells of E. faecalis and Calcium hydroxide-based sealers, Sealapex and Apexit were ineffective in this short-term experiment. Expand
Antibacterial effects of five different root canal sealing materials.
It appears that NEC may act as a potent antibacterial agent similar to CH, as the highest mean diameters of growth inhibition zones were observed around NEC and CH. Expand
Antibacterial effect of selected root-end filling materials.
The direct contact test (DCT) with Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa was found suitable to assay solid root-end filling materials and IRM and ProRoot MTA were generally more potent inhibitors of bacterial-growth than the other tested materials. Expand
The antimicrobial effect within dentinal tubules of four root canal sealers.
The aim of this study was to investigate four root canal sealers--Pulp Canal Sealer EWT, Sealapex, AH26, and Ketac-Endo--for their antibacterial effects within dentinal tubules, and the strongest effects were demonstrated by AH26. Expand
Antibacterial activity of a new endodontic sealer against Enterococcus faecalis.
The Epiphany root canal sealer offered no antibacterial advantage over the other sealers tested, and their effectiveness decreased marginally with greater duration of incubation. Expand
In vitro evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of nine root canal sealers: direct contact test.
It was concluded that that antimicrobial activity of the tested sealers depends on the time interval between mixing and testing, and most sealers exhibited antibacterial activity when freshly mixed that is lost over time. Expand
