Mineral trioxide aggregate (e-MTA) is a bioactive cement made up of extremely small hydrophilic particles of several mineral oxides. It is better protection for vital pulp therapy which promotes precipitation of Calcium Phosphate and promotes dentinal bridging and forms an impeccable seal that promotes healing response. Because of the ultrafine-grained powder, e-MTA has a smoother consistency and is easier to apply.
Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) is a bioactive cement used in a wide range of clinical applications. MTA is one of the most advanced materials of this century in the dentistry field. It is used for apexification, perforation repairs, apexogenesis, regenerative procedures, pulp capping, and pulpotomies.
On a glass slab or mixing pad, wet the powder by gently mixing the powder with liquid in ratio 3:1 with the help of a spatula until all the powder has been hydrated and mix for approximately 30 seconds.
Liquid is distilled water use to get sand mix Gel is used to get a putty mix
Once the mixture is prepared, immediately load it in an e-MTA Carrier or other suitable alternative and place it at the operative site.
The mixture should be applied immediately after preparing the mixture to avoid dehydration of the mixture.
Biocompatibility, Hydrophilic, Excellent sealing, and low solubility.
