BRITO-JUNIOR, Manoel; FARIA-E-SILVA, André L; FONSECA, Bráulio  e  CAMILO, Carla C. Sealing ability of MTA used as cervical barrier in intracoronal bleaching. Acta odontol. latinoam. [online]. 2009, vol.22, n.2, pp.118-122. ISSN 1852-4834.

The aim of this study was to compare the sealing ability of white mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) with that of other materials used as a cervical barrier during intracoronal bleaching. Thirty eight extracted teeth were endodontically treated and 3 mm of filling was removed to receive the barrier material: G1- Coltosol; G2 - Vidrion R; G3 - White MTA; G4-No barrier (negative control) and G5- Roots totally protected with three layers of cyanoacrylate (positive control). The 30% hydrogen peroxide associated with the sodium perborate was left in the pulp chamber for 24 h. The specimens were immersed in a test tube containing a solution of potassium chromate (yellow), which turns blue in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. Two calibrated evaluators scored according to color in the presence of the detecting solution (0 - unaltered color, 1 - light blue and 2 - dark blue). Data were analyzed by the Kruskall-Wallis test (p<0.05). The results showed no statistically significant differences between the experimental group G3 and positive control (G5). No statistically significant difference was observed between G1 and G3. However, a statistical difference was verified between G2 and G3. MTA presented higher sealing ability than Vidrion R and did not differ from the positive control. However, there was no difference between MTA and Coltosol.
