Temperature elevations of 10 degrees C above body temperature, of duration greater than 1 minute, may be sufficient to cause bone tissue injury. Temperature rises on the root surface in excess of 10 degrees C have been shown in studies in vitro of thermoplasticized gutta-percha root filling techniques. To determine whether results in vitro at room temperature could be extrapolated to conditions in vivo, temperature elevations were recorded at the mid-point on the root surface of the canine… CONTINUE READING
