The objective of canal filling is to maintain low microbial count obtained after the disinfection phase of endodontic treatment. It is used to seal the treated canal system, and limit development of residual bacteria to prevent any resumption of infection. TotalFill BC Sealer, dedicated to canal sealing, was developed in order to meet these objectives.
Unlike conventional filling cements, the setting reaction of TotalFill BC Sealer is triggered by the moisture present in the dentinal tubules. Using this moisture, TotalFill BC Sealer forms hydroxyapatite, to ensure optimum chemical adhesion between the dentin and the cement.
BC Sealer is anti-bacterial during setting due to its highly alkaline pH and unlike traditional sealers, BC Sealer exhibits absolutely zero shrinkage.
