INTRODUCTION: Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) is the main irrigant to clean root canals. Decalcifying agents are advocated as additional means to condition the root dentin. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of alternating (EDTA) or continuous 1-hydroxyethane 1,1-diphosphonic (HEDP) chelation in conjunction with NaOCl irrigation on the pushout bond strength of Biodentine (Septodont, Saint Maur des Fosses, France). METHODS: Single root canals of 50 extracted, mature human teeth were divided into 5 groups (n = 10) and enlarged using rotary instruments...

INTRODUCTION: Pulp capping materials need to be able to protect the pulp but also bond to the overlying restorative materials. Light-curable pulp capping materials bond better to restorative materials and are easier to place than most water-based cements. The aim of this study was to characterize new light-curable tricalcium silicate-based pulp capping materials and compare their surface and antimicrobial properties with clinically available Theracal (Bisco, Schaumburg, IL) and Biodentine (Septodont, Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, France)...

BACKGROUND: In children, dental caries (tooth decay) is among the most prevalent chronic diseases worldwide. Pulp interventions are indicated for extensive tooth decay. Depending on the severity of the disease, three pulp treatment techniques are available: direct pulp capping, pulpotomy and pulpectomy. After treatment, the cavity is filled with a medicament. Materials commonly used include mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), calcium hydroxide, formocresol or ferric sulphate.This is an update of a Cochrane Review published in 2014 when insufficient evidence was found to clearly identify one superior pulpotomy medicament and technique...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate water sorption, solubility and hygroscopic expansion and the effect of desiccation for a calcium silicate-based material, a conventional glass ionomer, and a resin-modified glass ionomer. METHODS: Water sorption, solubility and hygroscopic expansion of Biodentine™ (BD), GC Fuji IX GP® FAST (FJ), and Ionolux (IO) were tested under two pre-storage conditions: with desiccation and without desiccation. Disc-shaped samples (n=5) were immersed in water and weighed at different time intervals (1h, 24h, 3d, 7d and 30d) and hygroscopic expansion was recorded at 7d and 30d...

OBJECTIVE: This study examined the effects of MTA and Biodentine on the clinical and radiographic success rates of pulpotomies performed on primary teeth with carious pulp exposures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was conducted with 44 mandibular primary molars requiring vital pulpotomy. Carious dentin surrounding the exposure site was used as the inclusion criteria for all teeth, which were randomly divided into two groups according to pulpotomy material [MTA group (n = 24), Biodentine group (n = 20)]...

Background. The aim of this study was to compare the push-out bond strengths of calcium silicate-based ProRoot MTA and Biodentine cements and SureFil SDR and EverX Posterior bulk-fill composite resins. Methods. Twenty-four single-rooted maxillary central incisors were sectioned below the cementoenamel junction, and the root canals were instrumented using rotary files. Thereafter, a parallel post drill was used to obtain a standardized root canal dimension. The roots were randomly assigned to one of the following groups with respect to the intra-orifice barrier used: ProRoot MTA; Biodentine; SureFil SDR; EverX Posterior...

AIM: To test the hypothesis that polyacrylic acid-based and calcium silicate materials are able to increase mineral density of artificially demineralized dentine produced by a microcosm model for caries formation. METHODOLOGY: Forty-five dentine cavities were prepared in 9 sound human third molars (5 in each tooth). Specimens received a bacterial inoculum and were incubated in BHI plus 5% of sucrose for 96h to allow biofilm formation. After that, the specimens were scanned in a high energy micro-CT (baseline stack) and then, each cavity was filled with different cements: zinc polycarboxylate (Poly Zinc™ , Prevest DenPro, Jammu, India), conventional glass ionomer (Ketac Molar, 3M ESPE, Seefeld, Germany) and two calcium silicate based materials (MTA, Angelus, Londrina, Brazil and Biodentine™ , Septodont, Saint Maur des Fosses, France) while the central cavity was filled with utility wax (negative control)...

INTRODUCTION: This prospective study evaluated the outcome of Biodentine (Septodont, Saint Maur des Fosses, France) pulpotomy in young permanent teeth with carious exposure. METHODS: Twenty permanent molar teeth in 14 patients with carious pulp exposure were treated with Biodentine pulpotomy. The age of the patients ranged from 9-17 years (12.3 ± 2.7 years). A preoperative pulpal and periapical diagnosis was established. After informed consent, the tooth was anesthetized, isolated via a dental dam, and disinfected with 5% sodium hypochlorite before caries excavation...

Introduction: With the introduction of calcium silicate materials, pulp capping procedure has been simplified due to their therapeutic pulp capping capabilities and ability to be used as a provisional bulk restorative material simultaneously. The quality of the adhesive bond between these cements and composite is of clinical significance with regard to the longevity of the final laminate restoration. Thus, this study aims to compare the in vitro microtensile bond strengths of resin composite to different calcium silicate cements versus glass ionomer cement (GIC)...

Treating pathological defects that are caused by resorption in teeth can be challenging. The task is complicated further if the resorption extends beyond the restrains of the root. The aim of this report is to describe a case of extensive internal tunneling resorption (ITR) associated with invasive cervical resorption (ICR) in a maxillary right lateral incisor and its nonsurgical treatment. A 22-year-old male was referred to the department of endodontics with a chief complaint of discolored maxillary right lateral incisor or tooth 12 and a history of trauma...
