"Mineral Trioxide Aggregate Root Canal Treatment of Traumatized Permanent Incisors: A Retrospective Study"
MTA may be useful as a substitute for calcium hydroxide in root canal treatment procedure. Calcium hydroxide may be replaced by MTA for root canal treatment procedures. The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of orthoMTA apexification in young permanent anterior teeth.
The outcome based on clinical and radiographic criteria were assessed. The results were the clinical and radiographic success rates were 97.7% and 91.1%, respectively.
This is one of the very few studies that have reported the out coming of MTA as an apexification material in children with non‐vital teeth and incomplete root development. However, larger clinical studies are required to evaluate the long‐term success of this procedure. Also further research is required to clarify this conclusion.
