Comparative evaluation of the sealing ability of filling materials on root end cavities treated with smear layer removing agents: A confocal laser scanning microscopic study.

Shah DK, Sanap-Tandale A, Aggarwal S, Sengar E, Borkar A, Shetty S. Comparative evaluation of the sealing ability of filling materials on root end cavities treated with smear layer removing agents: A confocal laser scanning microscopic study. J Conserv Dent 2019;22:495-9 Abstract Aim: This study aims to evaluate and compare the sealing ability of Biodentine™ and mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) plus® on root end cavities treated with 17% ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid (EDTA), 0.2% Chitosan and 1% Phytic acid using Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope (CLSM)-An in vitro study. Materials and Methods: Sixty extracted single rooted teeth were instrumented and obturated with gutta-percha. The apical 3 mm of each tooth was resected and 3 mm root-end preparation was made using ultrasonic tip. 17% EDTA (n = 20), 0.2% Chitosan (n = 20) and 1% Phytic acid (n = 20) was used as a smear layer removing agent and each above group was further subdivided and restored with a root end filling …
