BioRoot™ RCS


BioRoot is a breakthrough in the latest generation of mineral-based root canal filling materials for permanent canal obturation.
Based on the Active Biosilicate Technology, BioRoot is designed for general dentists and endodontic specialists. It incorporates an easy-to-use cold obturation technique that ensures a long lasting, leak-free seal. A high pH (>11) helps stop bacterial growth and alleviates any risk of intracanal re-infection. BioRoot is biocompatible and resin-free, meaning it will not have any impact on human cells in case of over-obturation. The product is easy to hand-mix and place, giving practitioners greater efficiency. BioRoot is also competitively priced compared to the market leaders and contains 35 applications per kit.

Advantages over existing resin and eugenol based RCS:
Resin-free – Made from highly pure Calcium Silicate and monomer free ensures zero shrinkage, which equals zero sensitivity for the patient.
Hydrophilic – Works with moisture in the root and continues the sealing process in the presence of moisture. This is an issue with resin based RCS, which leave voids in the root for bacteria to re-enter the canal causing sensitivity and failures.
Antibacterial – Due to its high pH, stops bacterial growth, less risk of intracanal re-infection and has no effect on human cells in cases of over-obturation.
Strong seal – Void-free, tight interface with outstanding adhesion to dentin and gutta percha points.

BioRoot is the next generation in RCS. It is bioactive and biocompatible for greater patient outcomes and priced competitively for cost savings for the practitioner.
