The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vivo biocompatibility of Apexit (a calcium hydroxide) and Pulp Canal Sealer (a classic zinc oxide-eugenol), root canal sealers, after implantation in rat connective tissue. Forty-four white female Wistar-Furth rats were used. Each sealer was placed in Teflon tubes and implanted into specific dorsal subdermal tissues sites. Implants were removed after 5, 15, 60, and 120 days; fixed; and histologically prepared for microscopical evaluation. Severe… CONTINUE READING
