Clinical Studies


    The pulpectomy in primary teeth Nedley MP The pulpectomies is an underutilized treatment modality for weverely infected primary teeth. CASE DESCRIPTION: The author presents two pulpectomy cases that were filled with Vitapex. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Vitapex is an excellent filling material for primary tooth pulpectomies. Its clinical characteristics and ease of use may make the pulpectomy procedure a more-attractive alterative to extraction.
    Clinical study on the effect of Vitapex paste in apexification (Article in Chinese) Weng QF The purpose of this article was to observe the effect of Vitapex Paste in apexification. METHODS: 64 younger permanent teeth with underdeveloped apex and necrotic pulp were randomly selected. After root canals were prepared and sterilized, Vitapex paste was used in the apexification. All the teeth were observed for three years. RESULTS: 24 teeth (37.5%) were wuccessful, 37 teeth (57.81%) were progressive, 3 teeth (4.69%) were failed. Altogether 61 teeth were effective, the effective rate was 95.31%. CONCLUSION: Vitapex paste was effective for the younger permanent teeth in the apexification. PMID: 15293467
    An evaluation of sealing ability of endodontic materials as root canal sealers. Rajput JS, Jain RL Pathak A. An in vitro dye leakage study was carried out to compare the apical microleakage of Vitapex (calcium hydroxide based paste) when used with single gutta percha cone with that of dentalis KEZ (calcium hydroxide and zincoxide euginol based sealer) and zincoxide-enginol sealer when used with latterally condensed gutta percha obturation technique. One hundred single rooted human anterior teeth were instrumented and randomly divided into three experimental groups of 30 teeth each and two control groups of 5 teeth each. Teeth in the first group were obturated using a single master gutta percha cone and Vitapex as root canal sealer and those of second groups were obturated with laterally condensed gutta percha using dentalis KEZ as a sealer. Third experimented group was filled with laterally condensed gutta percha using zinc-oxide euginol as sealer. Teeth were then suspended in 2% methylene blue. After this, teeth were demineralized dehydrated and cleared. Linear dye penetration was determined under stereomicroscope (x10) with calibrated eye piece. Results of this study showed that calcium hydroxide based endodontic material leaked comparatively less as compared to zinc oxide Euginol sealer. Vitapex with single gutta percha cone provided an adequate apical Seal against dye penetration.
