What material is used to fill root canals?

Gutta-percha is a material used to fill a tooth after a root canal procedure. Gutta-percha, a plastic substance from a Malaysian tree called a percha tree, is used as a permanent filling in root canals.

Which obturation material can be used when the patient allergy to latex?

The use of gutta-percha for obturation during root canal therapy in latex-allergic patients.

What do you need to know about obturation materials?

4.      The material should be easily introduced into the root canal. It should seal the canal laterally as well as apically. It should not shrink after being inserted. It should be impervious to moisture. It should be bactericidal, or at least ,should discourage growth. 5.      It should be radioopaque.

Why is core obturation not moved by intention?

Core obturation material is not moved by intention into the narrowing cross sectional anatomy of the prepared canal and does not fill all of the ramifications of the cleared canal space because the points are adapted together cold. SystemB relies on a source of heat and extrusion of a heated obturation material.

How are systemb and obturation techniques the same?

The techniques are very similar in that both rely on heat to soften the master cone and use cold compression to move the heat softened mass of material into the canals. In SystemB this cone is compacted in one downpack motion (one wave of condensation), in vertical compaction there are multiple downpacks, alternating heat and pressure.

Is there a legal standard of care for Paste obturation?

Paste obturation is not the legal standard of care in North America. 3) “Squirt” techniques are non-master cone based in that obturation material is extruded from the cartridge tip end of an EOU or a similar device and the canal backfilled in segments or in one squirt with heated obturation material and compacted with cold pressure.
