MTA placement with PD MAP System
Amato, M.
More than 20 years ago Torabinejad et al. (1993) described first a new root end filling material called mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA). Vital pulp therapy has become more popular in recent years. Calciumhydroxid has been the most common material for pulp capping but MTA showed even better results in biocompatibility and outcome. The material showed in vitro better sealing ability than amalgam or Super EBA when used as root end filling material. Later several in vivo and in vitro studies showed more application procedures for MTA.
