Effect of the of Zeolite containing Silver-Zinc Nanoparticles on the Push out Bond Strength of Mineral Trioxide Aggregate in Simulated Furcation Perforation
Statement of the Problems: Recently, zeolite has been regarded to improve the properties of dental materials such as mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA).
Purpose: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of incorporating zeolite/silver/zinc (Ze/Ag/Zn) composite at 2 wt% to MTA powder on the push-out bond strength in simulated furcation perforations.
Materials and Method: Furcal perforations, measuring 1.3 mm in diameter and 2 mm in height, were simulated in 40 human mandibular first molars. The samples were allocated to two groups (n=20) based on the material used for the repair of perforations. In the group 1, MTA and in the group 2, MTA plus Ze/Ag/Zn (2%) was used. The samples were incubated at 37°C for 1 week. Then the universal testing machine was employed to measure bond strength. The resistance of materials to dislodgment was recorded in MPa. Data were analyzed using t-test. Statistical significance was set at p< 0.05.
Results: The push-out bond strength in the group 1 (6.40±1.98 MPa) was significantly higher than that in the group 2 (2.1±0.6 MPa) with p= 0.001.Conclusion: Under the limitations of the present study, it can be concluded that incorporation of Ze/Ag/Zn at 2 wt% to MTA powder had a negative effect on the push-out bond strength.
