Closure of perforation with MTA

What is the Closure of perforation with MTA?

Root perforations are undesired complications of endodontic treatment. Once a perforation has been diagnosed, treatment must be rendered to seal the perforation site effectively to minimize injury and prevent contamination of the surrounding periodontal attachment apparatus.

Although successful treatment and prognosis depend on many factors, the location of the perforation and the time lapse between exposure and repair are the two most important factors for determining the treatment and prognosis of the tooth.

What is the procedure?

Perforations have been treated mainly through surgical means earlier. However, now, with the introduction and widespread use of the operating microscope, together with the power of ultrasonics, the nonsurgical repair of perforation is more predictable, safe, and easy.

Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA) is a dental cement which is used to seal artificial communications between the teeth and periodontal tissues. MTA has several advantages when compared with the combination of calcium hydroxide - induced apical closure followed by compacted gutta-percha. These are a reduction in treatment time, thereby facilitating the timely restoration of the tooth; the tooth is less likely to fracture and the patient requires fewer visits to the dental office.
