PR16 - Effect of Root Canal Sealers on Root Fracture Resistance of Endodontically Treated Teeth: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

Thursday, April 26
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
Room: Exhibit Hall

Endodontically treated teeth are inevitably more vulnerable to fracture. Some researchers suggest that dentin bonding sealers strengthen root structures but some others believe that there is no significant difference in resistance to vertical root fractures using different types of root canal sealers. Because there seems to be a knowledge gap in this area, a systematic review and meta-analysis was initiated on the topic. Relevant studies were collected using the PubMed database. Forty-three abstracts of relevant topic were primarily selected for review. Inclusion criteria: (a) use of gutta-percha along with sealers as filling material; (b) use of Universal Testing Machine to introduce force to teeth samples; (c) use of force speed of 1 mm/min as intervention; (d) use of sealers that are currently on the market. After implementing the inclusion criteria, 22 articles, from 1999 to 2015 were selected and fully reviewed by four postgraduate endodontics students. A database was then created and the following information was entered for each selected paper: Author names, publication year, type of study, inclusion and exclusion criteria, teeth samples, root length, instrumentation method, obturation technique, presence of control groups, fracture measurement method, direction and speed of force applied to teeth samples, radius of spherical tip of Universal Testing Machine that contacts the teeth samples, results and conclusion of each study, and statistical significance. Statistical analysis will be performed, and meta-analysis model will be used to evaluate the combined effect of different sealers used with gutta-percha in root fracture resistance.

Abdulmajeed S. Alshahrani

Endodontic Resident
New York University College of Dentistry

Dr. Abdulmajeed S. Alshahrani is a first year endodontic resident at NYU college of Dentistry. He received his BDS Degree in 2012 followed by a one-year comprehensive residency program from King Khalid University college of Dentistry, Saudi Arabia. He then went on to work as a demonstrator in the Endodontic department at Najran University, college of dentistry, Saudi Arabia until he was accepted in to NYU’s Endodontic Program for International Dentists for one year graduating in 2015. Then he joined a Master of clinical research program in NYU College of Dentistry and graduated at the end of 2016 where he became proficient in CBCT use and investigated human root canal morphology. Currently, Dr. Alshahrani’s primary research focus is endodontic and orofacial pain although he is using his expertise in biomaterials to study root fractures.
