Abstract:

Polyethylene tubes obturated flush at one end and overfilled 2 mm at the opposite end with unset Grossmans cement and gutta percha were implanted in rat tibias. Microscopic evaluation of the specimens revealed that 1 the gutta percha, Grossmans sealer, and the polyethylene tubing are well tolerated by rat intraosseous tissue 2 a canal overextended 2 mm beyond the apex with Grossmans cement and gutta percha produces an early mild-to-moderate inflammatory response which resolves by the 30 day interval. The overfillings did not significantly compromise the healing of rat intraosseous tissue. Author
