The purpose of this in vitro study is to evaluate and compare the cytotoxicity of three commercially available root-ending materials, MTA Plus, Pro root MTA and Retro MTA, at different storage times after mixing on human periodontal fibroblast using a MTT assay method. Varied concentrations (3, 6, 12, 25, 50 mg/ml) of the fresh and set root-ending materials (ProRoot MTA, MTA Plus and Retro MTA) were placed in adjacent flasks of human periodontal fibroblast in DMEM medium within 96-well plates. Cellular viability was evaluated using a MTT assay after 24, 48, and 72 h of initial mixing. The results were analyzed with 1-way ANOVA. The results showed that there was no significant difference between the biocompatibility of MTA Plus, and that of Pro root MTA or Retro MTA (P>0.05). Furthermore, no significant difference was observed between different time intervals for each group (P>0.05). The current in vitro study showed almost similar biocompatibility for ProRoot MTA and MTA Plus and Retro MTA.

Negin Kouchak Dezfuli received a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Faculty of Dentistry at the Islamic Azad University of Tehran in 2014. She has been a Teacher Assistant during her study in the Cosmetic & Restorative department. She has worked as a General Dentist in Dental Treatment department of Alborz University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran, for one year.
