Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is considered at the present time as the gold standard for root-end filling in endodontic surgery. However, this biocompatible material presents several drawbacks such as a long setting time and handling difficulties. The aim of this article is to present a new commercialized calcium silicate-based material named Biodentine with physical improved properties compared to MTA in a clinical application. Two endodontic microsurgeries were performed by using specific armamentarium (microsurgical instrumentation, ultrasonic tips) under high-power magnification with an operatory microscope. Biodentine was used as a root-end filling in order to seal the root canal system. The two cases were considered completely healed at 1 year and were followed for one more year. The 2-year follow-up consolidated the previous observation with absence of clinical symptoms and radiographic evidence of regeneration of the periapical tissues. © 2014 WCSS. All rights reserved.

Objective: To evaluate the biocompatibility and osteoinductive properties of Bioroot™ RCS (BR, Septodont, France) compared to Kerr's Pulp Canal Sealer™ (PCS, Kerr, Italy) using the mouse pulp-derived stem cell line A4, which have an osteo/odontogenic potential . in vitro and contribute to efficient bone repair . in vivo. Methods: A4 cells were cultured at the stem cell stage in the presence of solid disks of BR or PCS, whereas untreated A4 cells were used as control. After 3, 7, 10 days of direct contact with the sealers, cell viability was quantified using Trypan Blue exclusion assay. Immunolabelings were performed to assess the expression of odontoblast markers i.e. type 1 collagen, DMP1 or BSP. Finally, sealer-treated cells were induced toward osteo/odontogenic differentiation to assess the impact of the sealers on mineralization by Von Kossa staining. Statistical significance was evaluated by one-way analysis of variance and . t-test (p . <. 0.05). Results: BR did not alter the viability and morphology of A4 pulpal cells compared to control group (p . >. 0.05); however, living cell percentage of PCS was significantly lower compared to control and BR groups (p . <. 0.05). BR preserved the intrinsic ability of A4 cells to express type 1 collagen, DMP1 or BSP at the stem cell stage. It did not alter the integrity of collagen fibers surrounding the cells and promoted overexpression of BSP and DMP1 at the cell surface. In contrast to PCS, BR did not compromise the mineralization potential of pulpal A4 stem cells. Significance: Bioroot™ RCS was not as cytotoxic as PCS. It did not recruit the pulpal stem cells toward differentiation but preserve their osteo-odontogenic intrinsic properties. Bioroot™ RCS might provide more suitable environment to induce stem cells for hard tissue deposition. © 2015 Academy of Dental Materials. Source

Objectives: The objective of this study was to evaluate composite methacrylate-thiol-ene formulations with varying thiol:ene stoichiometry relative to composite dimethacrylate control formulations. It was hypothesized that the methacrylate-thiol-ene systems would exhibit superior properties relative to the dimethacrylate control resins and that excess thiol relative to ene would further enhance shrinkage and conversion associated properties. Methods: Polymerization kinetics and functional group conversions were determined by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Volume shrinkage was measured with a linometer and shrinkage stress was measured with a tensometer. Flexural modulus and strength, depth of cure, water sorption and solubility tests were all performed according to ISO 4049. Results: All of the methacrylate-thiol-ene systems exhibited improvements in methacrylate conversion, flexural strength, shrinkage stress, depth of cure, and water solubility, while maintaining equivalent flexural modulus and water sorption relative to the dimethacrylate control systems. Increasing the thiol to ene stoichiometry resulted in further increased methacrylate functional group conversion and decreased volume shrinkage. Flexural modulus and strength, shrinkage stress, depth of cure, water sorption and solubility did not exhibit statistically significant changes with excess thiol. Significance: Due to their improved overall functional group conversion and reduced water sorption, the methacrylate-thiol-ene formulations are expected to exhibit improved biocompatibility relative to the dimethacrylate control systems. Improvements in flexural strength and reduced shrinkage stress may be expected to result in composite restorations with superior longevity and performance. © 2010 Academy of Dental Materials.

The use of tricalcium silicate-based cement (TSBC) as bone substitute material for implant stabilization is promising. However, its mechanical behavior under fatigue loading in presence of a dental implant was not reported so far because of the difficulty of measuring TSBC properties around a dental implant in a nondestructive manner. The aim of this study is to investigate the evolution of the 10MHz ultrasonic response of a dental implant embedded in TSBC versus fatigue time. Seven implants were embedded in TSBC following the same experimental protocol used in clinical situations. One implant was left without any mechanical solicitation after its insertion in TSBC. The ultrasonic response of all implants was measured during 24h using a dedicated device deriving from previous studies. An indicator I based on the temporal variation of the signal amplitude was derived and its variation as a function of fatigue time was determined. The results show no significant variation of I as a function of time without mechanical solicitation, while the indicator significantly increases (p<10-5, F=199.1) at an average rate of 2.2h-1 as a function of fatigue time. The increase of the indicator may be due to the degradation of the Biodentine-implant interface, which induces an increase of the impedance gap at the implant surface. The results are promising because they show the potentiality of ultrasonic methods to (i) investigate the material properties around a dental implant and (ii) optimize the conception of bone substitute materials in the context of dental implant surgery. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
