Abstract

The evolution of calcium silicate based cements in the field of dentistry has been rewarding. It offers a plethora of advantages with respect to physicochemical and biological properties. However, the extended setting time and limited antibacterial activity in these cements is quite a concern. This study aimed to develop a fast-setting nanoparticle incorporated root-end filling material for use after periapical surgeries. With the incorporation of the silver nanoparticles, and using calcium chloride as the liquid component, the desirable study outcome was achieved. The setting time was significantly reduced when compared to the commercially available root-end filling material.
