OBJECTIVE Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is used within areas of periradicular inflammation. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine if osteoblasts that attach to MTA surfaces alter their expression of inflammatory cytokines. STUDY DESIGN Mouse MC3T3-E1 preosteoblasts were seeded onto ProRoot (Pr-MTA) and Tooth-Colored (Tc-MTA) MTA surfaces, as well as commercially pure titanium (cpTi) and tissue culture plastic (TCP) controls. Cell-surface interactions were visualized by… CONTINUE READING
