Color Stability of NeoMTA Plus and MTA Plus when mixed with Anti-washout Gel or Distilled Water

ABSTRACT
INTRODUCTION:

This study aims to evaluate the effect of the special anti-washout gel mixing agent on the color stability of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) Plus and NeoMTA Plus in contact with distilled water, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl).

METHODS:

One set of three specimens was mixed using the antiwashout gel and the other set of three specimens was mixed using distilled water. Then, one specimen from each group was immersed in distilled water, 5% NaOCl or EDTA solutions for 24 hours. The color change of each specimen was assessed using spectrophotometer. The data were evaluated statistically with two-way ANOVA and post-hoc Tukey tests.

RESULTS:

MTA Plus mixed with gel showed the highest color stability regardless of the solution type.

CONCLUSION:

Mixing with MTA Plus and NeoMTA Plus powder with the special anti-washout gel within their kits contributes to the color stability of the materials.

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
