The “State-of-the-Art” in Endodontic Obturation
Introducing a revolutionary premixed and injectable root canal sealer utilizing new bioceramic nanotechnology! EndoSequence BC Sealer’s nano particle size allows it to flow readily into canal irregularities and even dentinal tubules and unlike traditional sealers; EndoSequence BC Sealer has absolutely no shrinkage! This highly radiopaque and hydrophilic sealer chemically bonds to both dentin and to our bioceramic gutta percha. It uses the moisture naturally present in dentin to initiate and complete its setting reaction and it is anti-bacterial during setting due to its highly alkaline pH. Experience for yourself why EndoSequence BC Sealer has won several awards such as Dentistry Today’s Top 100 Products and the Townie Choice Award. U.S. Patent Nos.: 7,553,362, 7,575,628, 8,343,271, 8,475,811 European Patent Nos.: 1861341 A4, 2142225 B1
HOW DOES YOUR CURRENT SYSTEM COMPARE?
What makes BC Sealer different from other “bioceramic” sealers? Our nano-particulate premixed bioceramic contains Calcium Silicates, Calcium Phosphate, Calcium Hydroxide and Zirconium Oxide – a patented formula that cannot be copied.
- Patented premixed calcium silicate, calcium phosphate bioceramic sealer
- Biocompatible and Osteogenic
- Bonds to dentin and BC Points
- 100% Hydrophilic
- Zero Shrinkage
With over 14 years of clinical use, countless peer reviewed studies, and an estimated 50 million cases performed worldwide, BC Sealer is the biologic standard of care in obturation.
BC Sealer HiFlow
Clinicians now have two distinct formulations of the same proven pre-mixed bioceramic sealer to choose from. Compared to standard BC Sealer, BC Sealer HiFlow exhibits a lower viscosity when heated and is more radiopaque, making it optimized for warm obturation techniques.
Standard gutta percha can be used with BC Sealer, but for a true, gap-free seal, BC Points are recommended. BC Points are impregnated and coated with bioceramic particles to allow for bonding with BC Sealer. The benefit of using BC Sealer and BC Points is that three-dimensional bonded obturation can be achieved at room temperature. However, if a warm vertical technique is preferred it is recommended to use BC Sealer HiFlow with BC Points 150 Series along with BC Pellets at 150ºC – 220ºC.
- Condensation-based technique
- Optimal for warm obturation
- Lower viscosity when heated
- Higher radiopacity
BC Sealer is alkaline (+12pH) making it highly antibacterial. A recent study showed that BC Sealer killed Enterococcus faecalis within 2 minutes of contact.
BC Sealer’s extremely small particle size and hydrophilic nature allow it flow into all aspects of the canal anatomy. A recent study proved that BC Sealer has a contact angle which is lower than all other sealers tested. This unique feature of BC Sealer improves its ability to bond to dentin and obturation materials and also improves its ability to effectively kill microbes throughout all aspects of the root canal system.
BC Sealer is essentially a root repair material with a flowable consistency. The unique osteogenic properties of BC Sealer make it particularly effective on non-vital cases with extensive bone loss or apical periodontitis. A recent study showed BC Sealer to be much more biocompatible than AH Plus®.
BC Sealer’s hydrophilic/hydroxyapatite producing formula and excellent flowability allow it bond readily to both dentin and to bioceramic filling materials (BC Points™). A recent study showed that BC Sealer has superior bond strength when compared to other popular sealers. The study varied the moisture content to determine its effect on bond strengths. BC Sealer outperformed all the other sealers at all moisture levels.
