A great solution for endodontic complications.
MTA-Angelus is an endodontic cement composed of several mineral oxides. It is constituted by thin hydrophilic particles. When mixed with water it initially forms a gel which soon achieves a rigid set within 10 to 15 minutes.
MTA-Angelus presents several advantages when compared to amalgam and zinc oxide-eugenol cements. MTA is used for root canal perforation, root-end resection, apexification, pulp capping & pulpotomy.
-Ions Calcium Release:Enhances formation of mineralized tissues; provides biological seal of perforations and total repair of damaged periradicular tissues
-Biological action:;Capable of inducing neoformation of periradicular cementum
-Easy to use:does not lose properties due to moisture of oral tissues
-High alkalinity: Bactericidal
-Low solubility:Does not disintegrate
-Biocompatible to oral tissues:Low inflamatory response
-Adequate compressive strength:Can be used as base restoration material
-More radiopaque than dentin and bone:Easy radiograph visibility
-Setting time of 15 minutes:Possibility of immediate restoration
