GuttaFlow 2 is a novel filling system for root canals that combines two products in one; sealer and gutta-percha in powder form with a particle size of less than. The new GuttaFlow generation. HYGENIC GuttaFlow 2 is a novel filling system for root canals that combines two products in one: gutta-percha in powder form. The aim of the present in vitro study was to evaluate the cytotoxicity of different sealers including GuttaFlow Bioseal, GuttaFlow 2, AH-Plus and MTA Fillapex on .

The mixed GuttaFlow has a working time of 15 minutes and will completely set in 25 to 30 minutes. The compositions of these materials are shown in Table 1. It is a straightforward place and backfill process. Salicylate resin, diluting resin, natural resin, bismuth oxide, nano particulated silica, MTA, pigments. It is essential to create an impervious seal along the length of the root canal, including both the apical and coronal ends of the root canal system, to prevent bacterial recolonization.

Results Fibroblast morphology The effects of extracts from root canal sealers were observed under an inverted phase contrast microscope, and changes in cell morphology were evaluated Figure 1.

Only a small amount is required.

GuttaFlow® for the Permanent Obturation of Root Canals: A Technique Review

When seating the MC, insert it slowly. Introduction Root canal sealer covers dentin tubules and prevents infection of the root canals. When you see the GuttaFlow rising in the canal, cease dispensing. Figure 4 The GuttaFlow can be placed directly into the root canal using the dispensing gun and canal tip.

Apoptotic index were used to evaluate quantitative data. The precise filling and sealing of the complex anatomy of the root canal can now be completed with a new material—GuttaFlow.

Pure DMEM medium was used as negative control and cells without extracts were used as positive control. Step by Step Card 3.


In vitro biocompatibility, inflammatory response, and osteogenic potential of 4 root canal sealers: Technique Tips There are a few technique tips to observe for a successful GuttaFlow obturation. GuttaFlow and GuttaFlow 2 consist of similar materials but in different proportions, and GuttaFlow 2 also contains silver particles.

Morphological cell changes due to chemical toxicity of a dental material: The canal tip must always sit loosely in the root canal. Applying the GuttaFlow into the root canal is easily accomplished via well known techniques. The capsules contain enough GuttaFlow to obturate a multi-rooted tooth, and the use of single-dose capsules is desirable in that it eliminates hand mixing and greatly reduces any chances for cross contamination.

The GuttaFlow can be placed directly into the root canal using the dispensing gun and canal tip Figure 4 or the GuttaFlow may be placed into the root canal with a lentulo. This advantage in time shows during the obturation of only one to two root canals. The MC will typically correspond in size and taper to the last apical file.

The only equipment needed for a GuttaFlow obturation is the typical triturator found in most offices. This new filling system works with cold free-flow gutta-percha.

In Vitro Cytotoxicity of GuttaFlow Bioseal, GuttaFlow 2, AH-Plus and MTA Fillapex

Cytotoxicity of three resin-based root canal sealers: There was cell death morphology with apoptosis which cells showed nuclear condensation and blebbing. In previous studies, apoptosis was observed in pulp tissue [ 15 ], osteoblast cells [ 16 ] and dental pulp stem cells [ 17 ] using the TUNEL assay. Apoptosis was determined by enzymatic labelling of DNA strand breaks using the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated deoxyuridine triphosphate nick-end labelling TUNEL assay.

GuttaFlow Bioseal differs from other GuttaFlow sealers as it also contains bioactive glass, which consists of silica, calcium oxide, sodium oxide and phosphorus oxide.


At all experimental time points, there was no significant difference in the cell viability between the GuttaFlow Bioseal group and the control group.

Always dispense a small amount of the mixed GuttaFlow onto a pad to confirm that the color is pink, ensuring a complete mix. In contrast to other obturation materials, GuttaFlow expands very slightly 0.

As mentioned earlier, there is no heated material involved, no special equipment required, and no condensing.

Instrumentation and Drying GuttaFlow is designed for the permanent obturation of the root canal. Gently dispense a small amount of GuttaFlow into the canal.

This can be done by applying GuttaFlow directly from the dispensing gun or dipping the MC into material on a pad. Future studies should assess whether the gutaflow glass in GuttaFlow Bioseal has a positive effect on bone tissue. Initially, only a small amount of GuttaFlow is required in a canal.

Another option is to coat the walls of the root canal by applying GuttaFlow with the last apical file or with the MC. Angelus Londrina, PR, Brazil. Please review our privacy policy. Phosphorus ions play an important role in the formation of apatite crystals, and composed calcium phosphate is known to be a precursor of apatite [ 2930 ].

The tips above are very important when using the dispenser gun and canal tips to inject GuttaFlow directly into the root canal. ROEKO GuttaFlow 2 shows a slight expansion and it adheres very well to the gutta-percha point masterpoint as well as to the dentin.
