MTA Flow is a bioactive powder and liquid/gel system consisting of an extremely fine, radiopaque, inorganic powder of tricalcium and dicalcium silicate which sets with a water-based gel.
Ultradent Products Inc. has unviled MTA Flow (Mineral Trioxide Aggregate), a repair cement made especially for pulpotomies, pulp capping, root-end filling, apexification, perforation repair, and root resorption.
According to the manufacturer, MTA Flow is a bioactive powder and liquid/gel system consisting of an extremely fine, radiopaque, inorganic powder of tricalcium and dicalcium silicate which sets with a water-based gel. When set, the repair cement forms a layer of hydroxyapatite, which induces a healing reaction. The powder/gel combination also gives the clinician a variety of mixing options needed for an effective, non-gritty, easy-to-deliver MTA.
Four things to know about this new product
MTA Flow’s small particle size (less than 10 microns) allows for smooth and easy dispensation, and its proprietary gel formulation makes the product more washout-resistant than other MTAs mixed with water.
MTA Flow’s mixing ratio is adaptable to every procedure, allowing the clinician the ability to achieve any desired consistency, from thin, to thick, to putty.
Its quick setting time also makes it possible to rinse or air-dry without washing away the MTA within five minutes of application.
MTA Flow is the only MTA that can be delivered in thin consistency through a 29 ga Navitip® tip for apexification and apical plug applications.
