Studies have shown that MTA cement is a bioactive material that promotes healing. MTA cement releases calcium hydroxide when it sets. When calcium hydroxide reacts with tissue fluids, a layer of calcium phosphate forms. This layer is recognized by the body as hydroxyapatite, which induces a healing reaction.1
Smooth, Adaptable Consistency
MTAFlow mixes easily and has a smooth consistency due to the ultrafine-grained powder and proprietary gel medium. The mixing ratio of the powder and gel components of MTAFlow is adaptable based on the procedure, ranging from a putty consistency to a consistency so flowable that it can be delivered via a 29 ga NaviTip® tip.
MTAFlow was designed to be delivered using Ultradent tips. The thick consistency can be delivered easily with a 22 ga Black Micro® tip, and the thin consistency can be delivered via a 29 ga NaviTip® tip, ensuring controlled delivery anywhere in the canal.
Essential Components for Multiple Applications
The MTAFlow Kit comes with the essential tools you’ll need to mix and deliver the cement. The kit contains enough MTA powder and gel to complete 8–10 applications. It also includes a measuring spoon, mixing pad, and the tools you’ll need for precise delivery—10 Skini syringes, 10 Luer Lock caps, and 20 Black Micro Tips.
