This study aims to compare the bioactivity of Biodentine, ProRoot MTA and NeoMTA Plus with regard to their element uptake (Ca, Si and Ca/P) by root canal dentine in a simulated apex (n = 30 each) and evaluate the correlation between the dentine fracture resistance (n = 30 each) and interfacial layer thickness. Specimens immersed in a corrected simulated body solution (c-SBF) for 1, 30 and 90 days were used. In all test materials, the Ca and Si concentrations in the root dentine were found to be significantly higher, whereas the Ca/P and Si concentrations increased over time (P < 0. Read More
