Abstract:

Four calcium hydroxide based apexification pastes were tested for their antibacterial effects on Streptococcus sanguis. Their zones of growth inhibition on blood agar plates were measured at 2, 4, 6, and 8 days. Only the camphorated parachlorophenol and the metacresylacetate pastes showed zones of inhibition. Both of these zones of inhibition decreased with time, however, the zones of inhibition for the parachlorophenol paste decreased at a slower rate. Author
