NS-22 Bioceramic Root Repair Material: Clinical Applications With an Evidence

Product not yet rated

CE Credits: 0

Program Overview:

Endodontic microsurgery has evolved tremendously due to advances in materials and surgical techniques. In the last decade, Mineral Trioxide Aggregate has become the material of choice based on biological principles; however, the cost and handling properties remain practical obstacles to its use. Recently, other calcium silicate cements, like EndoSequence® Root Repair Material (Brasseler USA, Savannah, Ga.) have been introduced that overcome some of these working issues. This presentation will review the clinical applications, outcomes and biological responses of bioceramic root repair materials.    

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the physical properties of bioceramic root-end filling materials.
  • Identify the studies evaluating the biological responses of bioceramic materials.
  • Discuss advantages and limitations of bioceramic materials.
