Sophisticated Applications of Bioceramic Sealer


3D obturation of instrumented and well-cleaned root canal is the key for long-term success of endodontic treatment.

The use of calcium silicate cements (bioceramics) as a root canal sealer has proven, until now, a promising clinical behavior for root canal treated teeth merging the ease of application, with good compatibility, and high success rate.

The special properties of the material allows it to be applied in different clinical scenarios rather than using it as a regular root canal sealer only on daily basis.

This presentation will highlight the use of Bioceramic sealer in endodontic with some sophisticated applications like in obturating open apex teeth, periapical micro-surgery, root perforations, and other interesting applications.
