Biodentine™: Present and Future
Sampedro, M. / Filgueira, M. / Marques, C. / Miller, P. / Barbosa, M.
Introduction: Biodentine™ was developed by Septodont® as a new dental material. Its chemical composition is based on Ca3SiO5, which gives it a good bio-activity compared to MTA™, another well-known endodontic restorative cement.
Objectives: To analyse the literature and present the results about the proprieties of Biodentine™, comparatively with MTA™.
Materials and Methodology: Examination of the literature obtained conducting searches on PubMed, with the keyword "Biodentine". Criteria for inclusion: case-studies and research articles comparing Biodentine™ with other materials, written in English and published between 2013 and 2016. Further references were obtained by examining the references on the selected literature. A total of 105 articles were analysed.
Conclusions: Biodentine™ is an alternative to MTA™ in endodontics, restorative dentistry and odontopediatrics. Long term studies are necessary to verify its longevity and effectiveness.

Keywords: Biodentine
