Patient discussion about material

Q. What is the ingredient in perfume or Cologne that will trigger an asthma attack? There is something in cologne/perfume that's not in body spray that triggers my asthma. I went out with a friend and he had on cologne and my asthma starting bothering me. Before going out my asthma hadn't bothered me in months because I stay away from things that may trigger an attack. This often happens with other things like bleach, ajax or any bad odor

A. Anything that irritates the nose and bronchi can cause an attack. No one really knows why...but it does. Cigarettes and pollution are common cause also.

The dental amalgam is the most commonly used retro grade filling material, as it is easy to manipulate, seals cut apical orifice with acceptability due to slight expansion on complete setting, though it has few disadvantages of amalgam "cloud", reaction of mercury to tissues and corrosion.
Investigation of the physical properties of tricalcium silicate cement-based root-end filling materials.
In laboratory studies, removal of the filling material has traditionally been assessed radiographically (4) by rendering the teeth transparent with clearing techniques (11) or by examination under endodontic operating microscopes followed by morphometric analysis of digital images, (4) scanning electron microscopy (SEM), (12) and confocal scanning laser microscopy (CSLM).
Eccentric (mesio-angulated) projections did not contribute essentially to the detection of filling material remnants and are not recommended to be routinely performed when controlling the cleaning of single-canal teeth during endodontic retreatment.
The depletion of the material from the root canals was found to be the main disadvantage of Calcium Hydroxide as root canal filling material.
In some studies, it has been stated that leakage mostly occurs between the filling material and the root canal walls.
3) During retreatment, it is essential to remove all the filling material so that the residual microbial population can be eliminated and create favourable conditions for periradicular healing.
A dye leakage investi gation has showed that the sealing ability of MTA can be increased by the addition of calcium hydroxide when used as a root end filling material.
The areas with remaining filling materials (gutta-percha/sealer) in each root canal third were identified, outlined and measured by one blinded observer using a manual threshold.
Recent concerns that mercury may leach out and cause adverse health effects have fueled some of the research into alternative filling materials (SN: 4/10/93, p.
Filling materials that stimulate the tooth pulp to repair itself, eliminating the need for root canal therapy.
The purpose of this study was to compare the success rate of two root end filling materials both clinically and radiographically using MTA and zinc free amalgam as retrograde filling in surgical endodontic.
