How do I “mix” SmartMTA?
In a small area on a glass slab or mixing pad, simply wet the powder by gently incorporating the powder into the liquid until all the powder has been hydrated, approximately 30-45 seconds. The “mix” should appear shiny. DO NOT OVERMIX SmartMTA.
How do I place SmartMTA?
Once the “mix” loses its shine, immediately place in an amalgam carrier or suitable alternative and place at the operative site.
What factors may affect setting time?
The amount of water will modify the setting time. More water will slow the set and less water will speed the set. It is important to dispense 2 free-flowing drops of SmartMTA every time for consistent results.
After placing SmartMTA, how long do I have to wait before proceeding with the restorative procedure?
Setting time is 150 seconds and, because there is no washout, the restorative procedure can begin immediately after.
How many teeth can be treated with one vial of SmartMTA?
Normally, 1 vial (.2g) is enough for 2 pulpotomies on first molars or one larger second molar.
How much product is in each vial?
There is 2g of material in each vial. This is enough to do up to 4 pulpotomies.
How much liquid do I use with 1 vial of SmartMTA?
2 free-flowing drops.
What accessories do I need to apply the SmartMTA?
An amalgam carrier will easily place the material at the operative site. We recommend using a glass slab, however a paper cement mixing pad is a disposable alternative.
If using as a base or pulp cap, do I need to cover SmartMTA with another base material?
Only if using a composite resin restorative material. In this situation, a LC RMGI such as Vitrebond or Limelight may be used. GI containing (RMGI or pure GI) restorative materials can be placed directly over Smart MTA.
Can I mix with local anesthetic?
Yes, local anesthetic can be used in lieu of the distilled water. However, since two drops of liquid is the perfect amount to wet the powder, it may be difficult to dispense the same amount of local anesthetic consistently.
Can I use a metal spatula to mix SmartMTA?
No. A plastic spatula is recommended.
How do I achieve hemostasis prior to placing SmartMTA?
HemeRX pellets may be used or Sodium Hypochlorite.

Is Smart MTA Capsule the same type of MTA as in my hand mix vial?

What equipment do I need to use the SmartMTA Capsule?

How much product is in each capsule?
