Comparison between gutta-percha and Resilon removal using two different techniques in endodontic retreatment
(Elsevier B.V., 2006-04-01)
This study compared the remaining filling material and working time when removing gutta-percha/AH 26 and Resilon/Epiphany from root filled extracted teeth. The root fillings were removed using chloroform and two different ...
Evaluation of the thermoplasticity of different gutta-percha cones and Resilon®
The goal of this study was to evaluate the thermoplasticity of conventional and thermoplastic gutta-percha and Resilon®, a polyester polymer-based material. Specimens with standardised dimensions were made from the following ...
Solvent capacity of different substances on gutta-percha and resilon
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of 3 solvents (eucalyptol, orange oil, and xylol) on 2 types of gutta-percha (conventional and thermoplastic) and Resilon. Specimens (10 mm diameter × 1 mm thick; n=7 ...
Filling of simulated lateral canals with gutta percha or resilon when using thermomechanical compaction
Aims: To evaluate the filling of simulated lateral canals with gutta-percha or Resilon when using thermomechanical compaction. Setting and Design: Forty-five human single-rooted teeth were subjected to tooth decalcification ...
Bond strength of Resilon/Epiphany compared with Gutta-percha and sealers Sealer 26 and Endo Fill
Temperature Changes in Gutta-Percha and Resilon Cones Induced by a Thermomechanical Compaction Technique
(Elsevier B.V., 2009-06-01)
Introduction: The aim of this study was to assess temperature changes in conventional gutta-percha, thermoplastic gutta-percha, and Resilon cones by using thermomechanical compaction technique. Methods: The root canals of ...
Ability of Gutta-Percha and Resilon to Fill Simulated Lateral Canals by Using the Obtura II System
(Elsevier B.V., 2012-05-01)
Introduction: The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of Resilon (Resilon Research, LLC, North Branford, CT) and 2 types of gutta-percha to fill simulated lateral canals when using the Obtura II system (Model ...
