Designed for orthograde or retrograde accesses, we have developed 4 different kits offering specific solutions for the easy and precise placement of MTA.
Micro Apical Placing
The MAP System significantly improves the access to the cavity and other anatomically difficult regions to reach, thanks to the various geometries of needles. The precision of placement of the cylinder of compacted MTA loaded in the needle prevents the dispersion of the material in the root canal. The MAP System is the answer to your MTA placement challenges in most clinical indications.
The MAP System is an autoclavable and reusable surgical instrument. The single-use plastic plungers are also autoclavable, allowing a complete decontamination of the entire device.
A tool at the service of precision
The MAP System is made of different needles adapted to the procedure, the size of the canals and the volume of materials required. The needles are available in 3 differnet sizes and are colour-coded: yellow = No. 0, red = No. 1, blue = No. 2. The shape of the needles is specific for each clinical indication. Classic curved needles are designed for precise endodontic procedures performed using the orthograde approach. NiTi Memory Shape needles can be bent to your specific needs. Triple-angle Surgery needles and Hooked needles are intended for retrograde endodontic procedures.
PDTM MTA White
The PDTM MTA White is an aggregate of mineral trioxide whose opacifier, calcium tungstate, avoids the risks of stains and discolouration sometimes encountered with bismuth oxide. The optimised particle size distribution of its fine hydrophilic powder contributes to a quick and easy mixing. Its short setting time, around 15 minutes, makes it possible to carry out the restoration almost immediately. Humidity does not affect its mechanical characteristics in any way. Its low solubility creates a good seal, and its excellent marginal sealing ability prevents the migration of fluids into the root canal. The alkaline character of cement gives it antibacterial properties, and its hydrophilic character promotes the neoformation of cement by creating a favourable environment for the healing of periodontal tissues. It also stimulates the formation of a dentinal barrier directly in contact with the pulp.
The excellent biocompatibility of PDTM MTA White with the dentine wall and pulp allows its use for orthograde and retrograde root fillings, to treat cervical root resorptions as a pulp capping material, as well as for the apexification and pulpotomy of immature teeth in children and adolescents.
“When you are able to place MTA exactly where it is needed, you finally understand how essential the Map System is.”
“The flexibility of NiTi needles is a real added value. The various MAP System kits are dedicated not only to endodontic specialists, but will also be very useful for general practitioners who may need to use these devices in their daily practice.”
“Thanks to the MAP System, I have the possibility to achieve a perfect retrograde filling of 4 mm deep without overflow. The quality of the filling is significantly improved. The triple angle needles provide excellent access and a perfect overview of the surgical field.”
“I have been using MAP System formany years for MTA placement. Its clinical versatility is incomparable, especially due to the NiTi bendable tips that allow the best ergonomy in delivering the material in the most challenging scenarios.”
“MAP System is simply amazing. It allows clinicians to pre-bend the NiTi carrier and place MTA without any problems since the plugger inside the tube is plastic and smoothly follows the curvature. I find MAP system remarkable, not only for the intra-canal use, but also for pulp capping procedures that demand precision and confidence. It’s simply genius !”
“MAP system provides a unique and efficient method for precisely placing MTA and also other bioceramic materials. In my clinical experience, Map system is the perfect device and the best choice for perforation management, apical plug, pulp capping and retro- obturation for micro apical surgery. It makes the procedure more predictable and easier to handle thanks to different size of tips and the NiTi Memory Shape. The flexibility of the tips makes it easy for the operator to bundle manually to fit to the shape of the root canal for effective placement of the bioceramic material. I personally strongly recommend Map One System to all colleagues, easy manipulation and effective for all procedures mentioned above.”
“I saw the MAP system for the first time at the exhibition of the AAE several years ago and I think I have been the first Italian Endodontist who started using it. It has been a “love at first sight”. Since then I use the MAP System in every case where it is indicated the use of MTA. It is the best MTA carrier available in the market for both nonsurgical and surgical endodontics. More recently I had the opportunity to try and use the new PD White MTA, which has the great advantage of setting in a very fast time and it is not causing discoloration when used to repair buccal perforation in anterior teeth. I recommend the use of MAP System and of the new formula of PD White MTA to all the colleagues who want to obtain excellent results for their patients.”
