OBJECTIVE: Erosive/abrasive challenges can potentially compromise bonding to dentin. Aiming to improve the quality and stability of bonding to this substrate, this study investigated the combined effect of erosion and toothbrush abrasion on the microtensile bond strength (μTBS) stability to dentin using a universal adhesive system in total and self-etching modes, associated or not associated with deproteinization. METHODS: Bovine dentin specimens were divided into five groups according to the organic matrix condition (n=20): control (C); erosion (E); erosion + abrasion (EA); erosion + sodium hypochlorite (EH); erosion + abrasion + sodium hypochlorite (EAH)...

Background: Pulpal infections are caused by varied number of organisms and are located in various sites of root canal system. Thus, the success of root canal treatment depends on complete eradication of microbiota. Materials and Methods: Thirty-two patients were selected and divided into four groups (photoactivated disinfection [PAD], diode laser, 5% sodium hypochlorite [NaOCl], and normal saline). The treatment was done according to groups, following manufacturer's instructions...

Aim: This study aims to evaluate and compare the efficacy of various irrigation regimens on push-out bond strength of AH Plus/gutta-percha, Real Seal/Resilon, and MetaSeal/gutta-percha at three different root levels. Materials and Methods: Single-rooted mandibular premolars ( n = 120) were prepared and divided into four groups ( n = 30) based on irrigation regimen used: I: 5.25% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl)-17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA); II: 5.25% NaOCl-2...

The aim of this article is to describe the clinical case of the non-surgical retreatment of a failed revascularization/revitalization treatment (RRT). The retreatment was preceded by two sessions including an interim medication with calcium hydroxide and a modified irrigation protocol containing a highly-concentrated sodium hypochlorite and prolonged usage of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) to reverse unacceptable side effects of hypochlorite. During a 15- month follow-up, the healing of the periapical lesion, increased thickening of root canal walls and maturation of root was apparent...

Background: Different disinfectant solutions or medications are indicated prior fiber post bonding procedures.The aim was to evaluate the effect of different pretreatments of root canal on the bond strength of a fiber post luted to dentin with self-adhesive resin cement. Material and Methods: Forty-eight single-rooted mandibular premolars were endodontically treated and prepared to receive fiber posts. Teeth were assigned to four groups (n=12). Root canal walls were subjected to no pretreatment (G1 - control); irrigation with 10 mL of 5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) (G2); 10 mL of 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) associated with 10 mL of 5% NaOCl (G3); or 10 mL of 17% EDTA (G4)...

Bacterial biofilms formed on equipment surfaces are potential sources of cross-contamination and can be responsible for the spread of bacteria involved in food spoilage, such as some Enterobacteriaceae family members. In this study, the effect of chlorite-based disinfectants, including sodium hypochlorite (SH), chlorine dioxide (CD), strongly acidic electrolyzed water (StAEW), and neutral electrolyzed water (NEW), on inactivation of mono-biofilms of Enterobacter cloacae, Klebsiella oxytoca, and Citrobacter freundii was evaluated separately...

This study examined the disinfection efficacy and mechanism of electrolyzed water (EW) on Bacillus cereus biofilms. B. cereus strains, ATCC 14579 and Korean Collection for Type Cultures (KCTC) 13153 biofilms, were formed on stainless steel (SS) and plastic slide (PS) coupons. Mature biofilms were treated with slightly acidic EW (SAEW), acidic EW (AEW), and basic EW (BEW). SAEW (available chlorine concentration, 25 ± 1.31 mg L-1 ; pH 5.71 ± 0.16; and oxidation reduction potential, 818 to 855 mV) reduced ATCC 14579 biofilms on plastic slides to below the detection limit within 30 s...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the antimicrobial efficiency of Chlorophyllin-based photosensitization for microbial control of cherry tomatoes. Chlorophyllin-based photosensitization (1.5 × 10-4  M, 3 J/cm2 ) significantly (2.4 log) reduced the population of naturally distributed surface attached various mesophilic bacteria (microbiota) on tomatoes. Moreover, the population of thermoresistant strains of food pathogens Bacillus cereus and Listeria monocytogenes inoculated on tomatoes was reduced by 1...

TEMPO-oxidize nanocellulose (TONC) suspension has been obtained from total chlorine free (TCF) oil palm empty-fruit-bunches (OPEFB) pulp using 4-acetamido-TEMPO (2,2,6,6-tetramethyl piperidin-1-oxyl) mediated oxidation with sodium hypochlorite and sodium bromide in water at 25 °C and pH 10. TONC suspension with varied content from 0.5 to 6% (w/w) reinforced polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) polymer based nanocomposite films were prepared by the casting method. The structural interaction between the TONC and PVA was characterized by the Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM)...

Industrial manufacturing of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) requires purification of PHAs granules from high-cell-density cultures. Cells are broken by homogenization and PHAs granules are cleansed and treated to obtain PHAs latexes. However, cell lysis releases large amounts of DNA which results in an increasing viscosity of the medium, hampering the following downstream steps. Drop in viscosity is generally achieved by costly procedures such as heat treatment or the supplementation of hypochlorite and commercially available nucleases...

A highly water soluble phenothiazine (PTZ)-borondipyrromethene (BODIPY) based electron donor-acceptor dyad, WS-Probe, containing BODIPY as the signaling antennae and PTZ as the OCl- reactive group was designed and used as a fluorescent chemosensor for the detection of OCl-. Upon addition of incremental amounts of NaOCl, the quenched fluorescence of WS-Probe was enhanced drastically, indicating the inhibition of reductive photo-induced electron transfer (PET) from PTZ to 1BODIPY* and the detection limit was calculated to be 26...

Background: Enterococcus faecalis is one of the bacteria that commonly found in root canal and pulp infection after root canal treatment. Sodium hypochlorite is the most widely used root canal irrigation, but it has toxic properties if exposed to periradicular tissues. It is necessary to develop an alternative for root canal irrigation. Fig leaf ( Ficus carica Linn.) extract contains active substances such as flavonoid, tannin, and terpenoid which have been known for their antibacterial potency...

Bioactive hydraulic tricalcium silicate materials are commonly used in several dental procedures. Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) is one such material, which is used in a variety of clinical applications, the most recent of which is root canal sealing material, during which, the MTA potentially comes in contact with remnants of the chemical agents used for disinfecting root canals. The effects of commonly used root canal irrigating solutions on MTA have not been investigated in depth, thus far. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of five common chemical agents used in root canal preparation (sodium hypochlorite/NaOCl, ethylene diaminetetraacetic acid/EDTA, mixture of sodium hypochlorite and etidronic acid/NaOCl + EA, mixture of EDTA and Chlorhexidine/QMix, or saline) on a commercial tricalcium silicate (MTA Plus)...

Enterococcus faecalis(E. faecalis) is a common microorganism could be isolated from the infected canals, especially in the case of refractory apical periodontitis. Due to its ability to invade the dentinal tubules and highly resistant to antimicrobial strategies, the thorough debridement of E.faecalis is hard to achieve. And that may be one of the reasons to cause reinfection and therapeutic failure. According to the anatomy of dentinal tubules published before and the results of our team previous work, we designed six types of microtubes with different sizes...

Wet scrubbing is regarded as an effective method to remove hydrophobic organic odorants. The focus of wet scrubbing is to choose an appropriate scrubbing liquid. In this study, methyl mercaptan (CH3 SH) was selected as a representative hydrophobic organic odorant for treatment by wet scrubbing using several types of scrubbing solution: ethanol (C2 H5 OH), lead acetate ((CH3 COO)2 Pb), sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), and sodium hydroxide (NaOH). A comparative analysis of the treatment efficiency, operation cost, and environmental impact was conducted...
