Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the ability of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and amalgam to seal furcal perforations in extracted human molars using an anaerobic bacterial leakage model. Furcal perforations were made in 39 maxillary and mandibular human molars with a high-speed bur. These were randomly divided into two experimental groups of 18, with the remaining three teeth used as positive controls. Experimental group 1 was repaired with MTA and group 2 with amalgam. Three additional teeth without perforations served as negative controls. A dual chamber anaerobic bacterial leakage model was assembled. Brain heart infusion broth with yeast extract, hemin, menadione, and the chromogenic indicator bromcresol purple was used as the culture broth for Fusobacterium nucleatum. Eight of 18 amalgam samples leaked, whereas none of the 18 MTA samples leaked. MTA was significantly better than amalgam in preventing leakage of F. nucleatum past furcal perforation repairs.
