I wanted to seal the apex and coronal areas of lower bovine incisors for a study. It would be real easy to do if I used Surpass. I have found only a few endo studies that use Bovine teeth and have seen nothing as far as bonding.. Not surprising.
If I bonded the apex of a bovine incisor and placed it in caries detect and then sectioned the bonded area, wouldn't that tell me if it worked? How long would you leave it?

Thanks
DAvid

Not usre what you're trying to determine.

The use of bovine teeth in dental research is pretty common, though not that common for endo.

Fingernail varnish is a great sealer for apcies. It's what I use.

I tried the fingernail polish. Worked great until you run the teeth through an autoclave. When I used human teeth sealed with Surpass , the bond withstood autoclaving.

One normally would place the teeth through the autoclave prior to experimental treatment.

But it's nice to hear the Surpass made it. Cool
