2010). It … This is in accord with the notion that the chemical reaction may be extended and incomplete using a wetter mix, accounting for the greater clinical success of WMTA (Table 3.7). 2004. The solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the solvent as well as on temperature and pressure. Tricalcium silicate is unstable below 1250. o. Despite the fact that the formation of apical barriers is highly successful using calcium hydroxide, this material is quickly reabsorbed when in contact with the apical tissues, making it necessary to follow the clinical case long-term to confirm the formation of the barrier. Bismuth oxide has been used to successfully increase the radiopacity of MTA. The properties of cement mostly depend on its composition i.e. However, there is enough solubility in the early stages to begin the formation of a calcium-rich and highly basic environment, which is thought to stimulate the formation of calcium hydroxide, a precursor of biologically formed hydroxylapatite. The breakdown is very slow and below 700. o. 2008; Comin-Chiaramonti et al. Properties of cement can be classified in two categories, one is physical properties of cement and second is chemical properties of cement. The ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials) recognizes 10 types of Portland cement (ASTM Standard C150/C150M – 12 2012), but the Portland cement in MTA is restricted to Type I Portland cement. 2.1 Gray and tooth-colored ProRoot MTA. At 1300 ~ 1450 ºC, tricalcium aluminate and tetracalcium aluminoferrite are in molten state and CaO and part of dicalcium silicate are dissolved in the generated liquid phase. Several studies have evaluated the pH value of MTA, which is ~10.2 immediately after mixing, and rises to 12.5 and remains constant after 3 hours (Torabinejad et al. 197–202. Tricalcium aluminate and tetracalcium aluminoferrite contribute no useful properties, and can be to some degree deleterious. Tetracalcium Aluminoferrite (C4AF) contributes very slightly to strength gain. Mean solubility, setting time, pH, and calcium ion release (measured using atomic absorption spectrophotometry) were carried out at 3, 24, 72 and 168 h (Table 3.16). The nodules are ground up to a fine powder to produce cement, with a small amount of gypsum added to control the setting properties… 2.3 Scanning electron micrograph of MTA powder. The principal raw materials used in the manufacture of Ordinary Portland Cement are: 1. 2005; Song et al. In nature Tricalcium aluminate (C3A) liberates much heat during the early stage of hydration. Additionally, variability in raw sources and manufacturing processes among different cement producers is to be expected; therefore, interpretation of research reports that compare MTA to Portland cement should be mindful of this. Gypsum added to the cement during final grinding slows the hydration rate of C 3 A. Hydration reactions of C[sub 3]A with C[sub 4]AF with calcium sulfate hemihydrate and gypsum were investigated and the kinetics of the reactions compared. The origins of Portland cement date back to the early to mid-1800s in Britain where the Aspdin family was involved in its development. The setting reactions in MTA are approximated to be similar to those in Portland cement, which are best studied by analyzing the hydration of its individual components. Significant increases in porosity were observed in all experimental cements. The present report focuses on calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H) and tetracalcium aluminoferrite (C 4 AF), prepared individually from pure constituent elements. The two versions of mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA; gray and white) have enjoyed clinical success in endodontics since 1995. They are ferromagnetic, progressively more so as iron conten… 2009). Reproduced with permission of Elsevier Publishing. In 1824 Joseph Aspdin gave the name as Portland cement as it has similarity in colour and quality found in Portland stone, which is a white grey limestone in island […] 2007), suggesting that bismuth oxide has effects other than radiopacity as well. Its density varies from 4026 kg⋅m (x = 0) to 3614 kg⋅m (x = 0.7). This is important for understanding the effects of water on properties as discussed below. Source: Storm et al. Tetracalcium aluminoferrite (4CaO ∙ Al2O3 ∙ Fe2O3), on the other hand, is considered present in gray MTA but not in white MTA. The hydration reactions of the two minor components of Portland cement are influenced by gypsum. The pH of the three cement-based materials rose, but fell for the AH Plus sealer (Table 3.5) (Massi et al. An aluminum step wedge on occlusal dental films was radiographed next to tooth slices to measure radiopacity.

In 1997, Tulsa Dental Products (now Dentsply Tulsa Dental Specialties) received a decision from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that MTA was substantially equivalent in intended use and technological characteristics to similar products on the market for repairing pulpal tissues. Source: Ding et al. Table 3.1 pH of two MTA products and two Portland cement products at two time periods. In this liquid phase, dicalcium silicate synthesizes tricalcium silicate by absorbing CaO which is the key to the sintering of cement.

Solubility was reduced for the white Portland cement and both products increased in pH (Table 3.10) (Bortoluzzi et al. 2014). Original products contained tricalcium aluminate, tetracalcium aluminoferrite, gypsum, and bismuth oxide . Húngaro Duarte and associates examined the relative radiopacities of various heavy metals and other oxides at 20% concentration as possible radiopaquing additions to Portland cement (Húngaro Duarte et al. The commercial product was first available as a gray variety, and a tooth-colored version commonly referred to as “white MTA” was introduced in 2002 (Figs 2.1 and 2.2). 2009). Additional minor trace elements may also be present as stated in the MSDS. Other substituents may be used in future studies that satisfy all requirements. 2005). Addition of CaCl, the dissolution of components, which leads to the formation of reaction products at the interface between the material and the tooth, generating a biologic seal mostly of calcium hydroxide (, by 72 hours. 2006; Bozeman et al. 2010; Schembri et al. Most PCC color effects due to C 4 AF and its hydrates. 2006; Ozdemir et al. M, median, MP, mean posts of solubility (%) of hydrated cements in each period. Sulphate resisting cement has low tricalcium aluminate and tetracalcium aluminoferrite content and high tricalcium silicate content. 4 Citations (Scopus) Overview ; Fingerprint; Abstract. Higher radiopacity was seen with a powder/liquid ratio of 4:1. 2005, 2006). The grayness of GMTA arises from the presence of an iron-containing compound, tetracalcium-aluminoferrite (4CaO-Al 2 O 3-Fe 2 O 3) in Portland cement (ProRoot ® MTA product literature). Its properties are similar to those of Portland cement. He named the cement because it produced a concrete that resembled the color of the natural limestone quarried on the Isle of Portland, a peninsula in the English … Although calcium hydroxide is a reaction product, as mentioned below, some does appear in MTA powder, possibly due to reaction with ambient humidity (Camilleri 2008; Chedella & Berzins 2010). This leads to the suggestion that MTA powder is not produced in a kiln but in a laboratory (Camilleri 2007, 2008), although others have said it is manufactured the same way as Portland cement (Darvell & Wu 2011). The control material was unmodified MTA.

Silica O Alumina O Calcia O Tetracalcium Aluminoferrite O Limestone Dicalcium Silicate Tricalcium Silicate Hematite Hydration of which ceramic compound is most responsible for the significant long-term and fairly linear hardening of cement within concrete that has been mixed and poured (after the induction stage of curing)? It is no longer produced because cement produced from ordinary clinker and ground granulated blast furnace slag has excellent low heat properties. Regardless, it appears that the addition of bismuth oxide to Portland cement decreases its compressive strength and increases porosity (Coomaraswamy et al. Between MTA products, it appears the particles are more homogeneously sized in white MTA compared with gray MTA (Komabayashi & Spångberg 2008) and have fewer larger particles (Camilleri et al. Fig. 2009. In general, the tests show low solubility of MTA products in most cases. 2008. It is no longer produced because cement produced from ordinary clinker and ground granulated blast furnace slag has excellent low heat properties. The powder/water ratio significantly affected the physical and chemical properties of white MTA Angelus (Cavenago et al. (C) X-ray diffraction pattern of mineral trioxide aggregate – synthetic tissue fluid precipitates. Cytotoxicity, radiopacity, pH, and flow of a calcium silicate-based (MTA Fillapex (Angelus, Brazil) and an epoxy resin-based (AH Plus, Dentsply, Germany) endodontic sealer were measured at 3, 24, 72, and 168 h. Cytotoxicity was evaluated by the MTT assay to check the viability of BALB/c 3T3 cells up to 4 weeks (Silva et al. Tetracalcium aluminoferrite: 4CaO.Al 2 O 3.Fe 2 O 3: C4AF: Bogue’s Equations. The extent of the solubility of a substance in a specific solvent is measured as the saturation concentration, after which adding more solute does not increase its concentration in the solution. Ordinary Portland cement is manufactured by first obtaining the raw materials (typically limestone or calcium carbonate, clay, and/or other materials), crushing the individual raw materials to acquire a smaller particle size, and proportioning them to create a specific composition. 2005. Solubility was reduced for the white Portland cement and both products increased in pH (, There were no differences in calcium release, with the highest value for 2.0% at 24 hours. Regardless, it appears that the addition of bismuth oxide to Portland cement decreases its compressive strength and increases porosity (Coomaraswamy, The principal products are calcium silicate hydrates and calcium hydroxide (also known as Portlandite). Authors. The Portland cement component in MTA consists of tricalcium silicate (3CaO ∙ SiO2 or Ca3SiO5, also known as alite), dicalcium silicate (2CaO ∙SiO2 or Ca2SiO4, also known as belite), and tricalcium aluminate (3CaO ∙ Al2O3 or Ca3Al2O6). Tricalcium Aluminate (C3A) liberates a large amount of heat during the first few days of hardening and, together with C3S and C2S may somewhat increase the early strength of the hardening cement (this effect being due to the considerable heat of hydration that this compound evolves). 2009; Chang et al. By Hosam M. Saleh and Rehab O. Abdel Rahman. The pH of a solution is measured with an electronic glass electrode or chemical indicators. Although the use of cements (both hydraulic and non-hydraulic) goes back many thousands of years (to ancient Egyptian times at least), the first occurrence of “portland cement” came about in the 19th century. The commercial product was first available as a gray variety, and a tooth-colored version commonly referred to as “white MTA” was introduced in 2002 (. The grayness of GMTA arises from the presence of an iron-containing compound, tetracalcium-aluminoferrite (4CaO-Al2O3-Fe2O3) in Portland cement (ProRoot® MTA product literature). C stands for CaO, S stands for SiO2, A for Al2O3, F for Fe2O3 and H for H2O. Ordinary Portland cement is one of the most widely used type of Cement. Laboratory for Experimental Geochemistry and Petrology of the Earth's Mantle; Research output: Contribution to journal › Article. 2005). Tetracalcium aluminoferrite (4CaO ∙ Al 2 O 3 ∙ Fe 2 O 3), on the other hand, is ... (Camilleri et al. Natural Cr 3+-rich ettringite: occurrence, properties, and crystal structure. Fig. Bismuth oxide is included in MTA to serve as a radiopaque agent because Portland cement is not sufficiently radiopaque for dental purposes. ), and tetracalcium aluminoferrite (4CaO*FeO. In a later study, Fridland & Rosado (2005) found that the solubility of WMTA at 0.33 water-to-powder ratio decreased over nine days from 0.37% to 0.02%, and that the calculated cumulative solubility was a remarkable 24.02% at 80 days. 2006). There were very few differences noted over this time period, but the pH values were much lower than reported in other studies (Table 3.2) (Santos et al. Bogue’s equations for the percentages of main compounds in cement are given below. … Examples include limits on aluminum oxide, ferric oxide, magnesium oxide, sulfur trioxide, tricalcium silicate, dicalcium silicate, tricalcium aluminate, and tetracalcium aluminoferrite. Member, American Ceramic Society. Growth of ZnO Thin Films by Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition Using Isopropyl Alcohol for Oxygen Precursor p.998. (2005) and Massi et al. The 2.0% addition significantly reduced setting time and was significantly more soluble than 0.2% zeolite MTA and plain MTA. MTA offers a barrier with excellent sealing properties and a high degree of biocompatibility (Linsuwanont 2003). Solubility was tested for white Portland cement and WMTA, both modified with added CaCl2. DOI: 10.5772/intechopen.73784. It contains 76% alite, 15% belite, 7% tricalcium aluminate, no tetracalcium aluminoferrite, and … Portland cement was modified with additions of 10, 20, and 30 wt. 2005; Islam et al. Fig. 2004). 2007). In a typical Portland cement powder, tricalcium silicate and dicalcium silicate are in greatest proportion and are estimated to be roughly 75–80% of the cement, with tricalcium aluminate and tetracalcium aluminoferrite at approximately 10% each (Ramachandran et al. In this study, the hydration properties of this kind of steel slag were investigated. Calcareous or calcium carbonate, in the form of limestone, chalk and marl which is a mixture of clay and calcium carbonate. Gypsum is added to Portland cement/MTA to alter the setting time and does so primarily by influencing the reactions of the tricalcium aluminate. Source: Bortoluzzi et al.

For the 2.0% sodium zeolite MTA it was 6.79% and −7.09%, respectively, c.f. 2013). 2010b). All compositions melt incongruently in the range 1400−1450 °C. Thus, water is both a reactant and is contained in the reaction products of MTA. Table 3.14 Radiopacity of Portland cement, human dentin, and various additives to Portland cement. The thickness of an aluminum step wedge is plotted against the logarithm of the corresponding densitometer values to calculate relative radiopacity, expressed as the equivalence of aluminum (International Organization for Standardization 2001). Paul Wencil Brown. The sulphate resisting cement is a type of cement that has low Tricalcium aluminate (C3A) & Tetracalcium aluminoferrite ... Properties of Sulphate Resisting Cement. When comparing pH values of GMTA with WMTA, the white material has been reported to display significantly higher pH values over an extended period of time following mixing (Chng et al. Consistency property of cement: Consistency is a ability to flow cement paste in a normal condition. The water-to-powder ratio influences the amount of solubility, with higher water-to-powder ratios increasing MTA solubility and porosity (Fridland & Rosado 2005). The size and shape of the powder fraction of MTA has been examined by several researchers (Fig. In terms of shape, many of the particles are rather irregular, with some appearing needle-like (Camilleri et al. They are "interstitial phases" that crystallize from the liquid formed by partial melting during clinkering, and fill in the spaces between the silicate crystals. Reproduced with permission of John Wiley & Sons, Inc. White MTA and three experimental MTA formulations were tested for pH and other properties by Porter and associates (Porter et al. 2. Hydrates rapidly but contributes little to strength. Silver zeolite is a crystalline aluminosilicate material that releases silver ions, which are antimicrobial against most microbes. 5) Gypsum CaSO4.2H2O and their weight percentage is about 5%. 2003). Bismuth oxide was found to be the most radiopaque of the additions, almost six times as radiodense as pure Portland cement (Table 3.14). Reproduced with permission of Elsevier Publishing. Tetracalcium aluminoferrite (4CaO ∙ Al 2 O 3 ∙ Fe 2 O 3), on the other hand, is considered present in gray MTA but not in white MTA. Today, it is a very common hydraulic cement due to its inclusion in concrete, stucco, and mortar. For the 2.0% sodium zeolite MTA it was 6.79% and −7.09%, respectively, c.f. BUILDINGSCIENCESERIES6 SomeProperties oftheCalcium Aluminoferrite Hydrates U.S.DEPARTMENTOFCOMMERCE NationalBureauofStandards The amount of calcium hydroxide produced in MTA has been found to be approximately 10–15% of the hydrated material (Camilleri 2008; Chedella & Berzins 2010), which is below that expected for Portland cement (20–25%; Ramachandran et al. The solubility was considerably less for the 0.28 water-powder-ratio mix (Table 3.8). 2003; Dammaschke et al. 2001), suggesting that released calcium ions from MTA may interact with phosphorus in tissue fluid to yield hydroxylapatite, which helps to explain the physicochemical basis for MTA’s successful clinical applications (Fig. This wide range of applications is supported by their technical properties, where they have low diffusion coefficients and have available sorption sites; their alkaline environments reduce the mobility of different contaminants and flexibility of modification. 2010b; Darvell & Wu 2011). 2 *Al. Hosam M. Saleh * Atomic Energy Authority, Egypt; Rehab O. Abdel Rahman. In 2002, a white formula of MTA was introduced, achieved by eliminating iron oxide from the formulation. … The 2.0% addition significantly reduced setting time and was significantly more soluble than 0.2% zeolite MTA and plain MTA.

MTA powder (Dentsply, DeTrey, Germany) received the activated zeolite at 0.2% or 2.0% mass fraction. /cement, Portland/ It contains type III Portland cement, bismuth oxide, tricalcium silicate, dicalcium silicate, and tricalcium aluminate tetracalcium aluminoferrite. Yurii V. Seryotkin, Ella V. Sokol, Svetlana N. Kokh, Mikhail N. Murashko. Next, the mixture is ground and blended together and introduced into a rotary, cylindrical kiln where it is heated to 1430−1650 ºC. In the absence of elements other than calcium, aluminium, iron and oxygen, calcium aluminoferrite forms a solid solution series of formula Ca2(AlxFe1−x)2O5 for all values of x in the range 0–0.7. A Brazilian experimental formulation was measured for various properties and for pH compared with a commercial MTA product for up to 15 days. Other elements and compounds observed in MTA have been: As, Ba, Cd, Cl, Cr, Cu, Ga, In, K, Li, Mn, Mo, Ni, P2O5, Pb, Sr, TiO2, Tl, V, and Zn (Funteas et al. The objective of this study was to develop a novel antibacterial composite using tetracalcium phosphate (TTCP) fillers and bis(2-methacryloyloxy-ethyl) dimethyl-ammonium bromide, which is a quaternary ammonium dimethacrylate (QADM). Table 3.4 pH of WMTA and WMTA modified with Na2HPO4 buffer. Researchers have measured the setting expansion of several versions of MTA and found that GMTA expanded much more than WMTA or Portland cement, and that the water-to-powder ratio had little effect on expansion (Tables 3.11 and 3.12) (Storm et al. There were very few differences noted over this time period, but the pH values were much lower than reported in other studies (, cement samples, but the measured pH values were much lower than others reported in the literature. Magnesium Oxide (MgO) causes delayed expansion when present in large amounts. Paul Wencil Brown. raw materials, carefulness while burning and grinding process. Source: Poggio et al. Despite some differences between the experimental and commercial materials, except when noted, no delineation will be made in this chapter between the varieties of MTA. Role and importance of water in cement hydration. White Portland and ordinary Portland cement also reached their peak pH values earlier than GMTA and WMTA (Table 3.1) (Islam et al. Reproduced with permission of Elsevier Publishing. More water in the mix lengthens the setting time and the pH and calcium ion release are higher ( p < 0.05).

These mineral additions to MTA have not been shown to be advantageous (Cinar, Radiopacity (mm Al) of the sealers were 8.59 for AH Plus and 7.06 for MTA Fillapex. The crystal is orthorhombic, and is normally lath-like. 2008; Hawley et al. One reason for the sealing ability of MTA is its slight expansion upon setting. 2010). 2013). This difference in composition may affect setting expansion. 2011). Cavenago et al. 2.4 Scanning electron micrograph comparison of (A) Portland cement and (B) MTA powders. 1 Department of Oral Health and Rehabilitation (Endodontics Division), University of Louisville, School of Dentistry, USA, 2 Department of Oral Health and Rehabilitation (Prosthodontics Division), University of Louisville, School of Dentistry, USA. No degradation of physical properties was observed by adding ZrO2 and YbF3, which may be used to replace Bi2O3 in MTA (Antonijevic et al. Radiopacity (mm Al) of the sealers were 8.59 for AH Plus and 7.06 for MTA Fillapex. As would stand to reason, if the initial powder particles in MTA are smaller than those in Portland cement, the particles contained in set (hydrated) MTA are, similarly, smaller than in ordinary Portland cement (Asgary et al. Thus, substituting Portland cement for MTA is not advised in clinical procedures. Fig. C tricalcium silicate exists indefinitely. 2005) but greater amounts of bismuth (as Bi2O3 for radiopacity), and, therefore, its Portland cement component is of purer form. Thus, water is both a reactant and is contained in the reaction products of MTA. 2005). The pH of the three cement-based materials rose, but fell for the AH Plus sealer (, contact with the apical tissues, making it necessary to follow the clinical case long-term to confirm the formation of the barrier. C-S-H is an ionic conductor with a conductivity ranging from 10 −4 to 10 −3 S cm −1 in humidified air at temperatures between 60 and 100 °C. Tricalcium silicate sets via the following reaction (Bhatty 1991; Ramachandran et al. As part of a larger study of WMTA, pH measurements were made at intervals of up to 6 hours. Paul Wencil Brown, Kinetics of Tricalcium Aluminate and Tetracalcium Aluminoferrite Hydration in the Presence of Calcium Sulfate, Journal of the American Ceramic Society, 10.1111/j.1151-2916.1993.tb06597.x, 76, 12, (2971-2976), (2005). Solubility in this case may be beneficial to the success of the product in that it allows for the dissolution of components, which leads to the formation of reaction products at the interface between the material and the tooth, generating a biologic seal mostly of calcium hydroxide (Table 3.6). Table 3.9 Weight loss of four root sealant materials for up to 2 months. 2006. Andreeva E., Sanzhaasuren R. —Investigation of the processes of chemical interaction on aqueous suspensions of tetracalcium aluminoferrite in the presence of gypsum dihydrate. 2003): The setting of dicalcium silicate is similarly given by the following reaction (Bhatty 1991; Ramachandran et al. At this point, the mixture is called clinker. Cement can be defined as the bonding material having cohesive & adhesive properties which makes it capable to unite the different construction materials and form the compacted assembly. Some of the physical properties of concrete, specified by ASTM, treated with the three types of chemical set retarding admixtures have been previously listed in Table 2–1 (p. 24) . Reproduced with permission of Elsevier Publishers. The backscattered electron image and x-ray images collected for Ca, Si, S, Al, and Fe are used to determine the distribution of phases such as tricalcium silicate (C 3 S), dicalcium silicate (C 2 S), tricalcium aluminate (C 3 A), tetracalcium aluminoferrite (C 4 AF) and gypsum (CSH 2) in the sample. Contributes to the color effects that makes cement gray. Tetracalcium aluminoferrite (4CaO.Al2O3.Fe2O3), (5-15%) If you would like to know the production process how cement is made, refer to this web page or the video below. These bogues compounds are also known as Alite, Belite, Celite, Felite respectively. Types, properties, constituents, manufacture, uses and advantages of Ordinary Portland Cement is discussed. White MTA differs from GMTA in its lower content of tetracalcium aluminoferrite. Addition of CaCl2 to WMTA revealed a significant increase in calcium release during the first 24 hours (Bortoluzzi et al. However, there can be many other minor components also since natural clay also contain Na, K etc. Source: Sarkar et al. 2005). 2005), which may explain the better handling properties of white versus gray MTA. However, others debate this (Darvell & Wu 2011).
