Biodentine is an all-in-one dentin replacement material that is bioactive and biocompatible and can be used in both the crown and root wherever dentin is damaged. Indications include restoring deep cavities, pulp capping, pulpotomies, perforations, and internal/external resorptions. In addition to treating damaged dentin, Biodentine provides a number of clinical benefits, including remineralization, preservation of pulp, and prevention of clinical failures. Studies have shown that Biodentine induces odontoblasts, enabling mechanical properties equivalent to human dentin. (The studies are available upon request.) Biodentine is now available in an operatory 5-pack size. For more information, call (800) 872-8305 or visit septodontusa.com.
