Abstract

Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) in endodontics has been popularized due to a large amount of research indicating the beneficial properties of the material.Several in vitro and in vivo studies have shown that MTA prevents microleakage, is biocompatible, and promotes regeneration of the original tissues when it is placed in contact with the dental pulp or periradicular tissues. In present article, we review the current dental literature on MTA, discussing types, composition, manipulation, setting reaction, clinical implication and method of placement of MTA.
