INTRODUCTION Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is widely used as a pulp capping material. Recently, a MTA-derived fast-setting pozzolan cement (Endocem; Maruchi, Wonju, Korea) was introduced in the endodontic field. Our aim in this study was to investigate the odontogenic effects of this cement in vitro and in vivo. METHODS Human dental pulp cells (hDPCs) were cultured, and the effects of Endocem and a previously marketed MTA (ProRoot; Dentsply, Tulsa, OK) on biocompatibility were evaluated by… CONTINUE READING
