BRADENTON, Fla. (PRWEB) January 21, 2015
Avalon Biomed Inc., a developer of bioactive products for dentistry, recently launched NeoMTA™ Plus®, a predictable and stainproof MTA material with multiple indications for vital pulp therapy and other endodontic procedures. All dentists now have an affordable and easy-to-use MTA-type product for “everyday” dentistry.
NeoMTA Plus recently received 4.5 out of 5 pluses, a 91 percent clinical rating and the Top Endodontic Reparative Cement Award from Dental Advisor. Eighty-one percent said they would switch, and 81 percent would recommend the product to colleagues. The full report is available online at the Dental Advisor website.
“NeoMTA Plus was developed for pediatric dentists, but is better for all dentists. The gold standard of MTA has been elevated. It’s a product having more indications with a color stable, washout resistant and more affordable bioceramic for predictable pulpotomies, root canal therapy and surgeries,” said Dr. Karl Woodmansey, Assistant Professor, Department of Endodontics, Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry.
NeoMTA Plus is a tricalcium silicate-based bioactive cement for vital pulp and other endodontic indications in primary and permanent teeth. Unlike other cements, NeoMTA Plus won’t discolor primary teeth. Even common liquids applied prior to application, such as sodium hypochlorite solution, will not cause staining. NeoMTA Plus is non-cytotoxic and inhibits bacterial growth of common bacteria.
The product’s bioceramic formula triggers the healing process with the precipitation of hydroxyapatite in vivo. General dentists, endodontists, and pediatric dentists now have a superior and affordable bioceramic. Two sizes are offered in the USA and Canada (2.5 and 7 gm kits). One-, two- and six-gram kits are offered outside of North America.
Avalon Biomed Inc. launched its first product, Grey MTA Plus®, in the United States in 2013. All Avalon Biomed products can be ordered directly from the company’s website at avalonbiomed.com or through select dealers.
