Description

MTA-Fillapex is an bioceramic endodontic sealer based on MTA, developed by Angelus (Londrina/Parana/Brazil) and launched commercially in 2010. It is a new product that combines the proven advantages of MTA with a superior canal obturation product. Its formulation in the paste/paste system allows a complete filling of the entire root canal, including accessory and lateral canals. MTA, present in the composition of MTA-Fillapex, is more stable than calcium hydroxide, providing constant release of calcium ions for the tissues and maintaining a pH which elicits antibacterial effects. The tissue recovery and the lack of inflammatory response are optimized by the use of MTA and disalicylate resin. The product is eugenol free and will not interfere with adhesive procedures inside the root canal. Also, it does not cause discoloration of the tooth structure.

 

INDICATION:

  • MTA-Fillapex is indicated for filling root canals of permanent teeth. It can be inserted with the gutta-percha points or with Lentulo drills.
  • It can also be used with thermal condensation techniques (heated gutta percha) because the boiling point of MTA-Fillapex is 150°C.

CONTRAINDICATION:

In patients with hypersensitivity against the resins or other components of the product.

In perforations, resorption sites and apical plugs (these cases must be filled with MTA Reparative Cement (Angelus MTA))

 

Key Specifications

Manipulation and insertion

The MTA-Fillapex is paste/paste material presented in automix double syringes or tubes which provide an adequate consistency for the cement insertion in the root canal. The presence of nanoparticles enables a homogeneous mixture and better flow of the product.

Sealing of root canals

MTA-Fillapex shows an optimized flow due to the nanoparticles. It provides excellent filling and sealing of the canals, main and lateral, as shown below.

1. The two pastes of MTA-Fillapex were measured in equal volumes and dispensed in a glass plate.

2. After complete homogenization (±30 s), a volume of 0.05 ml of the mixture was dispensed on the center of a glass plate. At 180±5 s after mixing, a second plate was placed centrally on the top of the sealer, with a 100 g weight on it (total mass on the plate of 120±2 g).

3. Ten minutes after mixing the weight was removed and the maximum and minimum diameters of the compressed disc of MTA-Fillapex were measured.

 

Film Thickness

1 .Initially we measured the thickness of two glass plates together, using a Mitutoyo Digital micrometer

2. Then, a portion of the MTA-Fillapex previously handled was dispensed in the center of one of the glass plates, covering it with another glass plate

3. Finally, a weight of 150 N (15 Kg) was applied on the center of the plate

4. The sealant filled completely the space between the glass plates

5. After 10 minutes, the thickness of the two glass plates plus the sealing thickness were measured with the aid of a Mitutoyo Digital micrometer.

 

Dimensional Change

The MTA-Fillapex, unlike resin cements, presents an important characteristic required by the sealing materials, which is the setting expansion.

1. 2g of MTA-Fillapex were prepared with 0.02 ml of water and dispensed into a mold to obtain three samples

2. Two glass plates were pressed up on both surfaces of the mold containing the material. The glass plates were fixed with the aid of a device for stabilization

3. After 5 minutes, the mold was taken to a relative humidity chamber of 95 % to 100% and later placed in dry heat at 37°C to reach the setting time (2h 20min);

4. Setting was confirmed by surface indentation with a Gilmore needle until the sample did not present any visible marks

5. The samples were polished with 600 grit sandpaper

6. The samples were measured

7. These samples were placed in distilled water and in dry heat at 37°C

8. Thirty days later, the samples were measured again

 

Solubility

Antimicrobial Action:

The use of materials that provide high alkalinity favors hard tissue mineralization as well as offers good antimicrobial activity. MTA-based sealers present alkaline pH and high calcium ion releasing

Ease of removal

MTA-Fillapex can be removed with chemical or mechanical intervention or a combination of both.

Solvents based on citrus oils and chloroform substances can be used.

Research on removal of lateral condensation root canal fillings with files and eucalyptol has shown that MTA-Fillapex is easier to remove than other cements
