PR14 - Evaluation of Reparative Dentin Regeneration and Pulpal Wound Healing Using Mouse Model and Two Different Pulp Capping Materials

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

Introduction: Hydraulic calcium silicate cements (HCSCs), the derivatives of the mineral trioxide aggregates (MTA), are routinely used in multiple dental procedures including root-end filling or direct pulp-capping. Yet, it is largely unknown whether these newer HCSCs are truly superior and effective than the original MTA in the context of direct pulp capping. Aim: To assess the reparative dentin regeneration quantitatively in vivo by using two different pulp capping materials ¾ ProRoot MTA and Brasseler EndoSequence Root Repair putty (ERRM), using direct pulp-capping (DPC) mouse model. Materials and Method: Nine mice with 18 molar teeth were allocated into three experimental groups (n = 6). All teeth were subjected to DPC with composite only, ProRoot MTA and ERRM. Five weeks after DPC treatment, teeth were extracted and scanned with SKYSCAN mCT scanner to analyze the amount of reparative dentin formation. DPC with composite served as a control. Results: Both ProRoot MTA and ERRM groups induced significant reparative dentin formation when compared to the control (Composite) group. No statistically significant difference was found between the ProRoot MTA group and the ERRM group. Conclusio: ProRoot MTA remains one of the best MTA available in the market. Biocermic materials is equally potent in inducing reparative dentin regeneration in vivo.

NAME - Sarah Hussain, Title - Resident, EDUCATION:
UCLA Endodontic residency (2016-2018), University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine(2014-2016), General practitioner/Private Practice(2007-2011), Al-Elwiya Specialized Dental Health Center/(GPR) (2008), University of Al-Mustansiriyah College of Dentistry(2002-2007) Bachelor Degree of Dental Surgery. Throughout the last 10 years since I graduated from the dental school 2007, I saw too many cases where there was carious or mechanical pulp exposure and because direct pulp capping treatment does not have a predictable outcome, I had to present the treatment plan as a root canal treatment rather than a simple coronal restoration to the patient, Here the question raised, is there another treatment option for such cases where we can maintain the tooth vitality with more predictable outcomes. Therefore, we think that studying the effects of different MTA derivatives on reparative dentin regeneration process in direct pulp capping treatment will probably give many patients the opportunity to save more healthy teeth with vital pulp tissue and extend the life expectancy for these teeth. Since the last year I started working in the Section Constitutive & Regenerative Sciences on developing pulp capping mice model to investigate the best available pulp capping materials.

University of California, Los Angeles

Mo Kwan Kang, M.S., Ph.D., D.D.S. is a professor and the chair of the Section of Endodontics and the Division of Constitutive & Regenerative Sciences at the UCLA School of Dentistry. Dr. Kang also holds a dual appointment with the Section of Oral Biology and is the first person to hold the Dr. Jack A. Weichman Chair in Endodontics. The current research in Dr. Kang’s laboratory is focused on oral mucosal diseases, including oral cancer, chemical- and radiation-induced oral mucositis, and aging-associated oral epithelial dysfunction. These studies were developed in his laboratory from extensive investigations of the mechanisms underlying cellular senescence (aging) and immortalization of normal human oral keratinocytes (NHOK)
