Mechanical Properties of Newly Developed Root Canal Sealers Containing Titanium Oxide
Titanium oxide (TiO2) has lately attracted considerable attention as a new material in dentistry because of its catalytic activity and biocompatibility. In the present study, we developed a novel root canal sealer consisting of TiO2 and evaluated its mechanical properties in vitro. The newly developed root canal sealer containing TiO2 has satisfied the requirement of ISO formulation 6876. Our results suggest that the newly developed root canal sealer has excellent physical characteristics, which may make it suitable for clinical use as a root canal sealer material.
