Abstract:

The scanning electron microscope and extracted human teeth were used to evaluate how well a low viscosity resin adapted to the radicular dentin tubules after the root canals had been endodontically instrumented and etched with an acid. Examination of the specimens revealed the acid removed the smeared layer and that the resin could penetrate and adapt well to the exposed, patent dentin tubules. These findings may be clinically applicable in root canal therapy. Author
