Ultradent Introduces MTApexTM Bioceramic Root Canal Sealer


Endodontics continues to evolve and I am excited to see *all* aspects of the treatment evolve as well.  We've seen major improvements in the last 10 years in both instrumentation as well as irrigation.  In the early to mid 2000s we saw the dawn of bonded obturation systems, but since then I feel the most improvements had been outside the realm of the filling process.

Now we are seeing a great deal of research and product implementation of biocompatible sealers... which I am very excited about.  The latest entry into the area comes from the smart folks at Ultradent and their MTA based sealer with syringe deliver.  Here is all the low down from the great minds in South Jordan, Utah:

Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials and equipment, is thrilled to announce the launch of its new endodontic product, MTApexTM bioceramic root canal sealer. 

For clinicians performing root canal treatments requirement obturation, MTApex bioceramic root canal sealer provides a sealer that is bioceramic and can be used with any endodontic obturation method. It features an extra smooth consistency that when mixed is designed to be delivered through Ultradent’s 29 ga Single Sideport NaviTipTM tip. The proprietary gel and tricalcium silicate powder mixture releases calcium ions, stimulating bone repair and increasing the pH of the canal. This helps avoid post- procedure bacterial growth and root resorption. Each kit of MTApex bioceramic root canal sealer contains enough powder and gel to seal approximately twenty canals.
