Effect of Storage Media on the Solubility of Commercially Available Calcium Hydroxide Cements. A Clear Guideline for Dentists

Shahreen Zahid, Samie Qadir, Asfia Saeed, Muhammad Kaleem, Haroon Ahmed Khan.

Objective: The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of storage media on the solubility of four
different commercially available calcium hydroxide cements.
Study Design: Comparative Experimental study
st th Place and Duration of Study: The study was conducted 1 August 2016 to 29 November 2016 at Army Medical
College NUMS.
Materials and Methods: The present study included four different commercially available calcium hydroxide
cements. For each material 8 disc-shaped specimens were prepared according to manufacturer's instructions.
Then each material was further divided in to two groups on the basis of storage media. “Group A” used distilled
water (DW) and Group B used saliva for the storage of specimens (n=4).Solubility was noted using analytical
balance after immersion. Data was analyzed with analysis of variance (ANOVA) and post hock Tukey's test using
SPSS 21.
Results: A significant difference (p≤0.05) between the results of solubility due to change in media of group A
and B was observed. The difference in solubility between the various cements was significant.
Conclusion: The study confirmed the difference between the cements on the basis of solubility hence it
highlighted the importance of solubility and provides a guideline for the clinician to choose the type of calcium
hydroxide that is required in a particular situation on the basis of determined solubility.

Key words: Calcium Hydroxide, Dental Cavity Lining, Dental Cements Solubility.
