GuttaFlow bioseal is a state-of-the-art obturation material used for sealing and filling root canals. Hydroxylapatite crystals are formed on contact with the body's own fluids. These in turn are natural components of bone and tooth tissue and support the healing process. This helps ENDO experts as well as beginners to create a lasting solution for their patients.

ROEKO GuttaFlow 2 shows a slight expansion and it adheres very well to the gutta-percha point (masterpoint) as well as to the dentin. Therefore no time-consuming condensation is necessary.

Definition:

GuttaFlow®2 is a cold flowable filling sys- tem for root canals, combining sealer and gutta-percha in one product. It consists of a polydimethylsiloxane matrix highly filled with very finely ground gutta-percha. GuttaFlow®2 has exceptional chemical and physical properties that offer maximum sealing quality and biocompatibility.

Ingredients:

Gutta-percha powder, polydimethylsilox- ane, platinum catalyst, zirconium dioxide, micro-silver (preservative), colouring.

 

Areas of application:

Permanent obturation of root canals

  • after vital pulp extirpation
  • after treatment for pulpal gangrene and temporary fillings

 

Properties:

GuttaFlow®2

  • combines the properties of sealer and gutta-percha
  • offers maximum sealing properties
  • consists of two components, which are automatically mixed bubble-free at a ratio of 4:1 in the mixing tip of the applicator
  • contains finely ground gutta-percha pow- der which is homogeneously distributed after mixing
  • flows with the matrix (sealer) into lateral canals and dentinal tubules
  • eugenol-free
  • radiopaque
  • does not shrink, expands slightly
  • highly biocompatible

 

GuttaFlow®2

  • working time: 10-15 minutes (heat re- duces working time)
  • setting time: 25-30 minutes

 

Application:

Following standardised preparation and, if necessary, temporary filling, the root canal is filled with GuttaFlow®2, together with a gutta-percha master point.

Caution: The root canal must be thor- oughly rinsed with sterile water or high- ly concentrated alcohol and dried with paper points to completely remove any residue of rinsing solutions (NaOCl, H2O2, etc.) and temporary filling materials from the canal. Any remaining residue may prevent the GuttaFlow®2 from cur- ing.

 

Important notes:

  • GuttaFlow®2 always cures completely re- gardless of humidity or temperature. The material flows into the smallest dentinal tubules, because of the small particle size (< 0.9 µm) of the GuttaFlow®2 matrix filler.
  • Heat may instantly cure GuttaFlow®2 placed in the canal. Therefore care has to be taken not to pull cured GuttaFlow®2 from canal walls during warm condensa- tion.
  • The material does not shrink, but expands slightly and retains some elasticity even after it has cured. To ensure a dense coro- nal seal, excess material must be removed with an alcohol soaked pellet and bur be- fore curing.
  • We do not recommend the use of further products (e.g. sealer) in addition to Gutta- Flow®2 and a gutta-percha master point during obturation of the root canal, due to possible incompatibility.

 

Before using the applicator, the brown cap of the applicator is removed and replaced with a flexible mixing tip. After slight pres- sure on the plunger the material flows ho- mogeneously mixed at a ratio of 4:1 and free of air bubbles from the mixing tip. The flexible mixing tips are single use only and should be disposed of after use.

 

Spread GuttaFlow®2 on a mixing block and insert into the root canal with the master point, the last used apical file or a lentulo spiral. When using a lentulo spiral, Gutta- Flow®2 can be placed both apically and three-dimensionally. Special caution is required when using a lentulo spiral, due to the potential danger of overfilling the material beyond the apex. For oval canals, additional gutta-percha points may be inserted after the canals have been com- pletely filled with GuttaFlow®2. However, condensation with instruments is not necessary.

After removing the mixing tip and before placing the brown cap the openings of the applicator should be wiped clean carefully with a tissue to avoid contamination of the two components. It is most important that the two components do not come into con- tact. The applicator must always be re- sealed after use with the brown cap.

 

Preservation:

The included micro-silver can also have a preserving effect in the root canal. The chemical type and concentration of the sil- ver does not cause corrosion or colour changes in the GuttaFlow®2.

 

Removing the root canal filling (see Step by Step instructions “Removal technique for root post preparation”):

When removing the root canal filling or preparing to place a post, the filling and ex- cess material should be removed using a round bur or Gates Glidden with contact to the canal wall. Chloroform or a heated in- strument will not soften GuttaFlow®2 itself, only the guttapercha of the filling.

 

Cleaning the instruments:

Instruments may be rubbed clean with a dry cloth immediately after use and before disinfection.

 

Contra-indications:

GuttaFlow®2 should not be used with de- ciduous teeth. Hypersensitivity to silver.

 

Side effects:

None known.

 

Storage and handling:

  • protect against UV light
  • store at 18°C to 24°C
  • do not use this medical device after the date of expiration

 

Warnings: This medical device must be stored out of the reach of children.
