Aim: The current study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of QMix and EDTA solutions in removing Ca(OH)2 from root canals.

Materials and Methods: Forty-eight mandibular premolar teeth were instrumented by ProTaper Universal instruments. All of the teeth were then fixed in modified Eppendorf vials using a silicone impression material. After the removal of the specimens from the Eppendorf vials the roots were split into two halves longitudinally and standard longitudinal grooves were then created on the dentinal walls at a level of 3 mm below the cementoenamel junction and 3 mm above from the apex of the roots. The Ca(OH)2 was placed into the grooves and the specimens were then remounted into the silicone impression material. Six groups were formed: Needle-EDTA, Needle-QMix, Ultrasonic-EDTA, Ultrasonic- QMix, Sonic-EDTA and Sonic-QMix. The root halves were separated and digital images of artificially created grooves were obtained with a stereomicroscope at a 25x magnification. The Ca(OH)2 left on the artificially created grooves were scored using a 4-graded scoring system and the data were statistically analyzed.

Results: Needle QMix group removed more Ca(OH)2 than with the EDTA group at the apical part of the root canal (P < 0.083).

Conclusions: When the irrigation was performed by a conventional needle, the QMix solution had better efficiency than EDTA in removing Ca(OH)2 from the apical part of the root canal. In clinical practice, the QMix solution can be used effectively for the removal of Ca (OH)2.

YAPAY OLARAK OLUŞTURULMUŞ OLUKLARDAN KALSİYUM HİDROKSİTİN UZAKLAŞTIRILMASINDA QMix SOLÜSYONUNUN ETKİNLİĞİ

Amaç: Bu çalışma amacı, QMix ve EDTA solüsyonlarının kök kanalından Ca(OH)2 ’i uzaklaştırma etkinliklerini değerlendirmektir.

Gereç ve Yöntem: ProTaper Universal aletleri kullanılarak 48 adet altçene küçük azı dişi şekillendirildi. Tüm dişler modifiye Ependorf tüplerine slikon ölçü materyali kullanılarak sabitlendi. Örnekler Ependorf tüplerinden çıkarıldıktan sonra kökler dik olarak ikiye ayrıldı ve dentin duvarları üzerinde, mine sement sınırının 3 mm aşağısında ve apeksin 3 mm yukarısında olacak şekilde standart oluklar oluşturuldu. Oluklara Ca(OH)2 yerleştirildi ve örnekler tekrar slikon ölçü materyali içerisine yerleştirildi. 6 grup oluşturuldu: İğne-EDTA, İğne-QMix, Ultrasonik-EDTA, Ultrasonik-QMix, Sonik-EDTA, Sonik-QMix. Kök parçaları ayrıldı ve stereo mikroskop altında 25 büyütme kullanılarak olukların dijital görüntüleri alındı. 4 aşamalı skorlama sistemi kullanılarak geride kalan Ca(OH)2 miktarı değerlendirildi ve veriler istatistiksel olarak analiz edildi.

Bulgular: İğne-QMix grubu apikal bölgede iğne-EDTA grubundan daha fazla Ca(OH)2 uzaklaştırmıştır. (P < 0.083).

Sonuçlar: Kök kanalları geleneksel iğne ile yıkandığı zaman, QMix soluüsyonu, EDTA’dan daha etkin şekilde Ca(OH)2 uzaklaştırmaktadır. Klinik pratikte QMix solüsyonu etkin bir şekilde kullanılabilir.
