The aim of the present study was to evaluate the cytotoxic effects of three different provisional restoration materials on fibroblasts. Twobis-acrylic based [Tempofit Duomix (Detax), Protemp 3 Garant (3M ESPE)] and one urethan dimethacrylate [Revotek LC (GC Corporation)] based provisional restoration materials used.
Materialswere prepared according to the manufacturers’ instructions in standard teflon disks (2×5 mm) and four samples were extracted in 7 ml of Basal Medium Eagle with 10% new born calf serum and 100 mg/mlpenicillin/streptomycin for 24 hours. The L929 fibroblast cells were plated (25.000 cells/ml) in well plates, and maintained in a CO2 incubator at 37°C for 24h. After 24 hours, the incubation mediumwas replaced by the immersed medium in which the samples were stored and the L929 fibroblasts were incubated in contact with eluates for 24 hours at 37°C for 24h. The fibroblast cell viability was...
