Brasseler USA® has announced that its EndoSequence® BC Sealer, a component of the company’s complete EndoSequence endodontic obturation system, has been embraced by the dental community as a revelation for root canal sealing and healing.

According to Brasseler, since the introduction of EndoSequence® BC Sealer in 2009, several positive studies have established BC Sealer as a new standard for successful endodontic obturation procedures.

Recent advancements in bioceramic nanotechnology have allowed BC Sealer to contain all of the desirable characteristics that scientists and practitioners have been in search of in a root canal sealer with superior handling, sealing and healing properties.

“Finally a sealer that is biocompatible, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial with no post-operative complications,” said Dr. Richard Herman, diplomat of the American Board of Endodontics.

Unlike conventional sealers on the market, BC Sealer utilizes the moisture naturally present in dentinal tubules to initiate its setting reaction. This highly radiopaque and hydrophilic sealer forms hydroxyapatite upon setting, and readily forms chemical bonds to both dentin and Brasseler’s patented bioceramic filling material points.

“In all my years of viewing high magnification scanning electron microscope images, I have never seen a sealer form such a consistently intimate bond with dentin,” said Dr. Martin Trope, clinical professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

Unlike traditional points, EndoSequence BC Points are subjected to a patented process of impregnating and coating each cone with bioceramic nanoparticles. The bioceramic particles found in BC Sealer used in conjunction with the bioceramic particles in BC Points form a true gap-free seal. Also, unlike traditional sealers, BC Sealer exhibits zero shrinkage and is biocompatible and osteogenic, successfully displaying all the essential characteristics of an excellent root repair material.

BC Sealer can be used with cold or heated methods, and can either be syringed into the coronal third of the canal or delivered by a hand file or point. However, many users have come to the conclusion that heat is not necessary because of its slight expansion (.03%) and its superior bonding abilities.
