|Title:||Microscopic cleanliness evaluation of the apical root canal after using calcium hydroxide mixed with chlorhexidine, propylene glycol, or antibiotic paste|
|Author:||da Silva, JM|
|Abstract:||This study evaluated cleaning of the dentinal wall after removal of different calcium hydroxide pastes. Sixty-eight single-rooted teeth were prepared using the step-back technique and randomly divided into 4 groups according to medication used: Ca(OH)2 with 0.2% chlorhexidine solution (Group 1), Ca(OH)2 with propylene glycol (Group 2), Ca(OH)2 with antibiotic paste (ciprofloxacin, metronidazole) and distilled water (Group 3), and Ca(OH)2 with antibiotic paste and propylene glycol (Group 4). The samples were stored at 37 degrees C and 100% relative humidity for 21 days. The medicaments were removed using 5 mL 1% NaOCl, instrumentation with master apical file, 5 mL 1% NaOCl, patency with the K-file #10, ultrasonic instrumentation, and 10 mL 17% EDTA-T. The specimens were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy and chemical analysis. The Kruskal-Wallis (alpha = 5%) test showed that were no differences between the experimental groups when comparing Ca(OH)2 removal (P = .0951). The chi-square test (alpha = 5%) indicated a predominance of Ca(OH) 2 obstructing dental tubules in all groups. On the basis of the methodology applied, it was concluded that the apical dentine surface remained equally covered by Ca(OH) 2, regardless of the vehicle used.
