- Product Details
The mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) is a dental material with biocompatibility properties to oral and dental tissues. MTA Angelus® is the tried and true Original Bioceramic material from Angelus. Serving endodontic needs for almost 20 years, this MTA is used by many dentists and dental specialists internationally.
MTA Angelus exhibits excellent handling properties, incomparable healing capabilities, radiopacity, high alkalinity, low solubility and clinically acceptable compressive strength. It provides a fast and effective formation of a dentin barrier and total repair of damaged periradicular tissues. Its packaging (air tight bottle of MTA + dropper bottle of distilled water) is very user friendly and dramatically reduces wasted material.
Indications for Use
MTA Angelus Reparative Cement is indicated in cases of root canal lateral and furcation perforations, internal resorption, reverse root filling, pulp capping, pulpotomy/vital pulp therapy, apexification, and apexogenesis, and as a filling material for root end surgery.

Q: What is the difference between Gray MTA and White MTA?
A: White MTA has less iron oxide in its composition. This substance is the responsible for the darker color of the Gray MTA. Such reduction in the levels of iron oxide does not interfere with the great properties of the cement MTA.
Q: How is MTA applied?
A: The consistency of MTA is different when compared to conventional dental materials. Its application may be performed with insertion spatulas, amalgam carriers or instruments specially designed for MTA handling (e.g., MTA Carrier and MAP System). MTA should never be used with a Lentulo spiral because it needs to be directly placed in the area to be repaired.
Q: Can MTA be used as a final root canal final filler?
A: MTA does not have a proper consistency (flow) for final root canal filling. Also, after its setting, removal would be extremely difficult if re-entry is necessary.
