The Biomineralization of a Bioactive Glass-Incorporated Light-Curable Pulp Capping Material Using Human Dental Pulp Stem Cells

Figure 1

The cell viability results (a) and confocal microscopic images of live and dead cells (b) for Dycal (DC, control for the gold standard of pulp capping material), Theracal (TC), and Activa Bioactive (BA) stratified by serial dilution (0, 3.125, 6.25, 12.5, 25, or 50%) in culture with hDPSCs. Different letters indicate significant differences among the pulp capping materials in the same diluted extract culture (). The asterisk indicates a significant difference compared to the control (0%) for the extract from each product (). The dotted line shows 70% cell viability. Live cells (green) and dead cells (red) were observed using confocal microscopy. Images of live (green) and dead (red) cells in media supplemented with 50% distilled water (DW) as the control, DC, TC, or BA. The representative mean ± standard deviation () and images are shown for experiments independently performed in triplicate.
