Event Title

Antibacterial effect of root canal sealers. In vitro study

Session

Dental Sciences

Description

In the success of endodontic healing the main factor is the removal of bacteria, the inhibition of their growth and the obstruction of re-entry into the tooth root canal. So one of the properties that must fill the material for the root canal sealers is also its antibacterial effect.

Aim of this study was to evaluate antibacterial effect of root canal sealers.

Material and methods

The study is done in private laboratory “Mikrobiologjia” in Prishtina. The study was in vitro conditions. In this study we tested two materials for root canal sealers: Endomethason and Apexit.

To evaluate antibacterial effect of root canal sealer are used two microbiological tests: test with agar blood (ADT) and direct contact test (DCT). The test was done in three cultures, and evaluated five types of bacteria: Streptococcus viridians, Staphylococcus albus, Naeseria sp micrococcus, Escheria coli dhe Staphylococcus saprophyticus.

Results: results showed that Endomethason has large zone of inhibition (30mm) compare with Apexit who was rezistent in culture in ADT and DCT.

Conclusion: Endomethason has antibacterial effect, whereas Apexit was indifferent in the three testing culture.

Keywords:

antibacterial effects, root canal sealers.
