Will Portland cement be a cheaper alternative to mineral trioxide aggregate in clinical use?: A comprehensive review of literature

Amitabha Chakraborty

Abstract


Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) was introduced in 1993 as root perforation repair material. Since then it is widely used as a successful dental hard tissue repair material especially in vital pulp therapy, apical plug, and perforation repair. In last 14 years, more than 100 publications have shown that Portland cement (PC) (which forms the bulk of MTA) has similar properties like MTA through different in vivo, in vitro, animal studies and recently through human trials. The experiments are still under process to see whether the PC can be used as a cheaper alternative of MTA. This article reviews the experiments done comparing the properties of these two materials and the potential of PC for clinical use in future along with the possible drawbacks.
