Biodentine is a calcium-silicate based material that has drawn attention in recent years and has been advocated to be used in various clinical applications, such as root perforations, apexification, resorptions, retrograde fillings, pulp capping procedures, and dentine replacement.
Biodentine is available as powder in a capsule and liquid in a pipette.The powder is mainly composed of tricalcium silicate (main core), dicalcium silicate, calcium carbonate, and iron oxide as well as zirconium oxide as the radiopacifier. The liquid contains water, calcium chloride (as setting accelerator) and a modified polycarboxylate (as superplasticising or water reducing agent).
Features & benefits
- Versatile usage: endodontic repair and restorative procedures.
- Natural micro mechanical anchorage for excellent sealing properties without surface preparation.
- Similar mechanical properties and mechanical behavior as human dentin.
- 5mm Aluminum radiopacity for easy short and long term follow-up.
