Abstract

The surface reactions of bioactive materials release and change dissolutions triggering intracellular and extracellular responses. Calcium ion release can promote alkalinizing activity, which is needed in tissue regeneration. To analyze calcium ion release and pH changes in modified MTA and bioceramics as bioactive materials. Thirty samples, measuring 3 mm in diameter and 3 mm in height, were prepared, with 15 consisting of modified MTA and 15 consisting of bioceramics. Both materials were immersed in deionized water for an hour, then measured and transferred into fresh solutions and soaked for 48 hours or 168 hours. The measurements were conducted using an atom absorption spectrophotometer and pHmeter. Mann Whitney's post hoc statistic test showed a significant difference among all the 1-hour, 48-hour, and 168-hour measurement groups, with a value of p ≤ 0.05. Bioceramics released more calcium ions and raised pH levels higher than modified MTA for each of the three soak-time groups. Bioceramics released more calcium ion and had higher pH level compared to modified MTA which contributed to the tissue regeneration.
