A Randomized Clinical Trial of NeoMTA Plus in Primary Molar Pulpotomies.

ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to compare the success of pulpotomies in primary molars using a new type of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA; NeoMTA Plus) with a conventional MTA (ProRoot MTA) as a pulpotomy medicament in primary molars.

METHODOLOGY:
Eighty primary teeth in 28 patients were divided randomly, with 40 teeth in a control group (ProRoot MTA) and 40 teeth in an experimental group (NeoMTA Plus). A standardized pulpotomy technique was performed for each tooth. Clinical and radiographic follow-up examinations were conducted at three, six, and 12 months.

RESULTS:
At 12 months, the clinical success for ProRoot MTA was 97.4 percent (38 out of 39) and the radiographic success was 94.9 percent (37 out of 39); for NeoMTA Plus, the clinical success was 100 percent (40 out of 40) and the radiographic success was 97.5 percent (39 out of 40). No significant differences were found between the two groups at all follow-up evaluations.

CONCLUSIONS:
NeoMTA Plus showed a high percent success, similar to that of ProRoot MTA. NeoMTA Plus is a potential pulpotomy medicament for primary teeth.

NeoMTA Plus is a stainproof, tricalcium silicate-based bioactive cement that can be used universally for vital pulp and other endodontic indications in primary and permanent teeth. NeoMTA Plus is a bioceramic cement that triggers the healing process. With NeoMTA Plus, general dentists, pediatric dentists, and endodontists now have a superior and reasonably priced bioceramic. Dentists praise the multi-use NeoMTA Plus because it mixes more smoothly, is easier to dispense and the unique gel enables more stable placement, washout resistance and faster clinical setting.

New, stain-free light color:

Ideal for pediatric dentistry—won’t discolor teeth
Liquids such as sodium hypochlorite won’t cause discoloration

Multiple indications:

Pulp-capping to base/liner
Pulpotomies to apexification
Sealer to perforation repair
Root-end filling to resorption

Non-cytotoxic

Inhibits bacterial growth* *Tested in vitro. Not a disinfectant

Grey MTA Plus is a bioceramic tricalcium silicate-based Dental Cement, which is slightly more radiopaque than (white) MTA. The light silvery color of MTA Plus is visible during placement. Grey MTA Plus is indicated for both Vital Pulp Therapy and Endodontic procedures. General dentists and endodontists praise the multi-use Grey MTA Plus because it mixes more smoothly and is easier to dispense. The unique gel enables more stable placement, washout resistance and faster clinical setting.

Multiple indications:

Pulp-capping to Base/Liner
Pulpotomies to Apexification
Sealer to Perforation Repair
Root-end Filling to Resorption

New, light grey color:

More radiopaque than the leading white MTAs
Visible for precise placement
Inhibits bacterial growth in vitro of Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Non-cytotoxic

Better mixing, handling and placement:

Finer powder mixes more easily and smoothly
Dispense as little as 0.1 gm
Unique gel for stable placement
Washout resistant
No special equipment required

Smart, convenient packaging:

Protects fine powder in desiccant-lined bottle
Easy to dispense powder as needed
Dropper-tip gel bottle minimizes waste
