Bioactive Endodontic Cements: Do Your Research

0 Comments

Based on what I’ve been reading about bioactive cements and endodontic treatment, some confusion still exists about the materials’ benefits. It also appears that more research is needed. In the meantime, though, let’s consider some basic information. Bioactive materials in general (cements, liners, restoratives):

  • have a biological effect on surrounding tissue
  • are moisture tolerant
  • respond to pH cycles by releasing and recharging calcium and phosphate
  • stimulate remineralization and apatite formation.

These four elements make the materials easier to use, strengthen tooth structure, and provide protection against bacteria.

 

I also came across some articles that might be helpful as you study the evidence behind the various bioactive cements currently available:

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate and Other Bioactive Endodontic Cements: An Updated Overview—Part I: Vital Pulp Therapy

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate and Other Bioactive Endodontic Cements: An Updated Overview—Part II: Other Clinical Applications and Complications

Then, when you’re done reading about how these cements work, you can check out all of the endodontic cements at dentalproductshopper.com and see which one is right for you and your practice.
