Spectrophotometric analysis of the color stability of white mineral trioxide aggregate in contact with four different irrigating solutions - An study.

J Conserv Dent 2020 Jul-Aug;23(4):377-383. Epub 2021 Jan 16.

Department of Periodontics, Saveetha Dental College, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India.

Aims: This study aims to compare the color stability of white mineral trioxide aggregate (wMTA) in contact with four irrigating solutions.

Settings And Design: Original research study.

Subjects And Methods: Fifty cylindrical discs of wMTA, 10 mm in diameter and 2 mm in height were prepared using a mold. Samples were incubated at a temperature of 37°C and at 100% humidity for the material to reach its optimal mechanical properties. The samples were divided into 6 groups: Group A: dry ( = 5); Group B: distilled water (DW) ( = 5); Group C: 5% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) ( = 10); Group D: 2% chlorhexidine gluconate (CHX) ( = 10); Group E: 17% aqueous ethylene diamine tetra-acetic acid (EDTA) ( = 10); Group F: 0.2% Chitosan ( = 10) Each disc was immersed into the irrigating solution for a period of 24 h. All the specimens were photographed using a digital camera before and after immersion. The assessment of color change of each disc of wMTA was conducted by a spectrophotometer. The Commission Internationale de l'eclairage system was used to calculate the differences in color.

Statistical Analysis Used: Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 16.0 (Chicago, IL, USA) at a significance level of < 0.05 was used.

Results: All groups except group A exhibited discoloration of wMTA. The mean values for change in color was highest with Group D, followed by Group C, F, E, B, and group A. Only Group B when compared to group A did not show any statistically significant difference ( = 0.948) whereas all the other four groups showed a highly statistically significant difference ( < 0.001).

Conclusions: 2% CHX causes maximum discoloration of wMTA followed by 5% NaOCl, 0.2% Chitosan and least discoloration with 17% aqueous EDTA and DW.

Scanning electron microscopic evaluation of smear layer removal at the apical third of root canals using diode laser, endoActivator, and ultrasonics with chitosan: An study.

J Conserv Dent 2019 Mar-Apr;22(2):149-154

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, S.M.B.T. Dental College and Hospital, Sangamner, Maharashtra, India.

Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of diode laser, endoActivator, and passive ultrasonics for smear layer removal at the apical third from root canals with 0.2% chitosan.

Materials And Methods: A total of 40 mandibular premolars were decoronated to establish a working length of 12 mm and shaped with ProTaper rotary files up to size F3. In Group A, canals were irrigated with 1 ml of 0.2% chitosan. In Group B, canals were initially irrigated with 0.8 ml of 0.2% chitosan and the remaining 0.2 ml was activated with diode laser. In Group C, canals were irrigated with 1 ml of 0.2% chitosan which was activated with endoActivator. In Group D, canals were irrigated with 0.2% chitosan and activated with passive ultrasonics. All samples were finally flushed with 3 ml of distilled water. The percentage of smear layer removal was analyzed with a scanning electron microscope examination at ×1000 and ×3000. Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences version 16.0 (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) at a significance level of < 0.05.

Results: The mean value for Group B when compared to Group C for the removal of smear layer was higher, but there was no statistically significant difference between the two groups ( < 0.068 and < 0.295). Both Group B and Group C showed a statistically significant difference ( < 0.001) when compared to Group A and Group D for the removal of smear layer.

Conclusion: Diode laser and endoActivator with 0.2% chitosan proved better in the removal of the smear layer when compared to passive ultrasonic irrigation.

The Contribution of Indian Endodontists in Rotary Endodontics to Pubmed Database, from 2000-2017.

Open Access Maced J Med Sci 2018 Oct 3;6(10):1878-1881. Epub 2018 Oct 3.

S.M.B.T Dental College and Hospital and Post Graduate Research Centre, Sangamner, Maharashtra, India.

Aim: This study aimed at assessing the trends of publications of Indian Endodontists in the field of rotary Endodontics in the PubMed database from 2000-2017.

Methods: The date of publication was set from 1st January 2000 to 31st December 2017, wherein keywords entered in the advanced search were "Indian" AND "Dental" AND "Rotary Endodontics". From the collected articles the following criteria were noted: year of publication, the name of the journal, status of the journal, name of the first author, state of origin and the rotary Endodontic file system used.

Results: All data was subjected for statistical analysis by SPSS software version 16. The data were subjected to chi-square test, and a statistically significant difference (p < 0.001) was obtained in the inter-6 yearly interval starting from 2000-2017; in the status of the journal; the state of origin and in the generation of rotary files which were published during the study period.

Conclusion: The plethora of publications by Indian Conservative Dentists and Endodontists is on the rise, and with the advent of better technology a greater interest in the mechanics and properties of these rotary file systems has invoked greater research work.

Contemp Clin Dent 2017 Oct-Dec;8(4):621-626

Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics, S.M.B.T. Dental College and Hospital, Sangamner, Ahmednagar, India.

Introduction: The main aim of root canal treatment is cleaning, shaping and then obturating three dimensionally to prevent reinfection. This includes chemicomechanical cleansing by instrumentation and the use of irrigating solutions. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare the smear layer removal from root canal dentine subjected to two root canal irrigants, 17% EDTA and 0.2% Chitosan, a new irrigant using Scanning Electron Microscope.

Methodology: 40 single rooted premolars were decoronated followed by instrumentation with I Race files and intermediate irrigation with 3% sodium hypochlorite and activation with ultrasonics. Then the samples were longitudinally sectioned and place in the respective test solutions and their controls for 5 minutes. Scanning Electron Microscopic evaluation was further carried out.

Results: The results of the present study indicates that the Chitosan which was proved effective in removing smear layer.

Conclusion: A moderate concentration of 0.2% chitosan removes the smear layer with greater efficiency.
