CLINICAL AND RADIOGRAPHIC EVALUATION OF THREE DIFFERENT RETROGRADE FILLING MATERIALS-MINERAL TRIOXIDE AGGREGATE, MINERAL TRIOXIDE AGGREGATE PLUS AND BIODENTIN IN CASES OF ENDODONTIC SURGERY UTILIZING CONE BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY-CLINICAL RESEARCH
The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of the three different retrograde filling materials-mineral trioxide aggregate, mineral trioxide aggregate plus and biodentin in cases of endodontic surgery utilizing cone beam computed tomography and by comparing the healing success of cases having a lesion of endodontic/combined endodontic periodontal origin. A total number of 30 patients requiring periradicular surgery were included in the study. Patients were recalled at 6 months,9 months,12 months respectively to assess the healing of cases after endodontic surgery and which material shows better healing among these three different retrograde filling material(Mineral Trioxide Aggregate Plus, MTA Angelus and Biodentin after the surgical procedure.
Key words; Clinical outcome, cone beam computed tomography, endodontic surgery retrograde filling material, radiovisiography, success rate.
