Dentsply Sirona Endodontics has added another product to its ProRoot® MTA family of endodontic advanced treatment options. ProRoot® ES endodontic root canal sealer is made from an enhanced formula of its counterpart ProRoot MTA root repair material. Now, the same healing properties that clinicians have come to know from ProRoot MTA are available in a biocompatible sealer.

The ProRoot ES formula provides a natural seal by sealing the root canal biologically. It is bioinductive for cementum and supports tissue regeneration. The sealer is reportedly dimensionally stable and stimulates a hard-tissue covering over the apical foramen, while enabling the repair of the periradicular tissues.

In addition to providing a biological seal to prevent bacterial micro leakage, ProRoot ES uses a polymer-enhanced, powder and gel system that is not cytotoxic in a freshly mixed or hardened state. It does not stimulate an inflammatory or root resorptive response.

The water-based, easy-to-mix formula creates a smooth stringy consistency for excellent handling, and also provides a flexible working time, setting quickly, even in the presence of moisture. The sealer initially sets within 65 minutes providing sufficient working time. Esthetically, the tooth-colored advanced sealer is highly radiopaque, offering a greater visual for sealer placement.

ProRoot ES is currently available only in the U.S.
