Q: Does MTA Fillapex replace the MTA Reparative Cement?
A: No. MTA Fillapex is an endodontic sealer, while MTA Reparative is indicated for the treatment of perforations, root resorption, apical plug and pulp capping.
Q: What is the working time of MTA Fillapex?
A: The working time is 23 minutes, which allows the root canal filling to be calmly performed by both the general practitioner and the endodontist.
Q: What is the setting time of MTA Fillapex?
A: 2 hours and 30 minutes. IMPORTANT: MTA Fillapex only sets in contact with moisture. Inside the root canal the moisture is derived from the dentinal tubules and from the periapical tissues. MTA Fillapex will not set completely on the mixing pad.
Q: How radiopaque is MTA Fillapex?
A: It is one of the most radiopaque endodontic sealers in the market.
Q: Is MTA Fillapex biocompatible with the tissues?
A: Yes. MTA Fillapex presents two components that guarantee this property: MTA, known as the most biologically compatible endodontic material and the salicylate resin, an organic and therapeutic resin widely used in endodontic cements.
Q: Can MTA Fillapex be kept in the refrigerator?
A: No. MTA Fillapex is sensitive to moisture and should not be stored in the refrigerator.
Q: How many cases can be made with one syringe/tube of Fillapex?
A: One 4g double syringe provides an average of 15 cases, depending on the teeth being treated. One 30g tube provides an average of 200 cases, depending on the teeth being treated.
