-e-MTA sealer is a premixed bioactive bioceramic endodontic sealer consisting of an extremely fine, inorganic powder of tricalcium/dicalcium silicate. The product is packaged ready-to-use.
– e-MTA putty is ready to use MTA cement which has all indications of MTA cement like apexification, pulp capping, pulpotomy, furcation repair and root resorption repair. Whereas e-MTA sealer is a root canal sealer with flowable consistency used along with Gutta purcha points in endodontic treatment of permanent teeth.
-NO. Moisture is required for setting of the sealer, supplied by the dentinal tubules and apical tissues. Clean & shape the canals and remove the smear layer. Remove pooled irrigants or excessive moisture from surrounding tissues with absorbent points.
-e-MTA sealer releases calcium and hydroxide ions from the MTA, promoting hydroxyapatite (HA) formation on the MTA surfaces to enhance sealing and support healing. It resin-free for maximum bioactivity. Zirconium oxide as a radio-opacifier makes it bioactive and non-staining.
-Working time is 30-40 minutes. Setting starts as soon as the material gets moisture. Setting time is 9-11 hours.
Use conventional instrumentation, including hand/rotary files and ultrasonic instrument tips, to remove the sealer if it was placed with one or more gutta percha points.
-Keep the syringe in the aluminum pouch in cool dry place. Do not refrigerate.
-2 years from date of manufacturing.
