|Title:||Investigation of the marginal adaptation of root-end filling materials in root-end cavities prepared with ultrasonic tips|
|Abstract:||Aim To compare the surface topography of root apices following ultrasonic root-end preparation, and again after root-end fillings submitted to three different finishing techniques. Methodology Eighty-one root-end cavities prepared ultrasonically in human canines, were divided at random into three test groups of 27 each. The cavities were filled with Super-EBA, IRM, or ProRoot-MTA and finished by ball burnishing. Eighteen roots from each group received a final finish with either a 30-fluted tungsten carbide finishing bur, or a Zekrya carbide 28 mm bur after storage in water at 37 degreesC for 24 h. The root-end surface topographies were reproduced by means of polyvinylsiloxane impressions and epoxy resin replicas. Scanning electron micrography (SEM) images of each replica were taken prior to and after root-end filling. An image analysis system was used to compare the alteration of the marginal chipping areas and to calculate the gaps located in the dentine/root-end filling interface. Results When a bur was used to finish the set materials, a significant (P < 0.05) area of marginal chipping was eliminated. The finishing technique did not significantly (P > 0.05) affect the incidence of gaps in groups root-end filled with MTA or IRM. Super-EBAand IRM retro fillings finished with a ball burnisher or a Zekrya bur displayed a significantly (P < 0.05) larger calculated gap area than roots filled with MTA. Conclusion Under this in vitro study, the marginal adaptation of MTA was good with or without finishing procedures. Applying a finishing bur over the condensed and set IRM and Super-EBA created better marginal adaptation.|
