a. Chemically bonded ceramic (bioceramic) raw materials. It's not a mineral (ceramic in nature) aggregate.
b. Aluminum-Free Composition
The effects of aluminum poisoning can range from subtle symptoms to serious diseases. BioAggregate is completely aluminum free and will not pose any toxic threat to the human body. - No toxic heavy metals. (No tricalcium aluminate - C3A - in MTA.)
c. No unnecessary heavy elements (ex. iron)
BioAggregate is pure bioMaterial without any unneccessary contaiminants, thus is considered safer for use as medical devices. (No tetracalcium aluminoferrite - C4AF in MTA)
BioAggregate is more biocompatibble than any other root-end filling and repair material. It does not produce adverse side effect on microcirculation of the connective tissue. It also has excellent biocompatibiity with the vital periradicular tissue. Tantalum Pentoxide as radiopacifying agent is used for more biocompatibility instead of Bismuth Oxide.
*BioActivity & Biomineralization
BioAggregate is Calcium Phosphate admixture rather than Calcium Carbonate or Calcium Sulfate of MTAs. BioAggregate is Calcium Phosphate Silicate Aggregate, which has directly bioactivity in phosphate deficient environment. Bioactive admixture containing material is to promote the bioactivity and biomineralization.
* Optimum Working Time & Setting Time
The working time of BioAggregate is at least 5 minutes. Upon mixing BioAggregate with BioA Liquid, a thick paste-like mixture is formed. If additional working time is required, simply cover the mixture with a moist gauze sponge while unattended. The setting time of BioAggregate is within 4 hours in normal optimal Powder-Liquid ratio ( 1 gam - 0.38 ml). As BioAggregate is a Calcium Silicate-based bioceramic cement, it is a hydraulic (water-based only, 100% water liquid) calcium silicate cement. For fast setting, accelerants (like polyacrylic acid, Calcium Chloride, Eugenol) can be used. But BioAggregate is the hydraulic based material. For original features & benefits, the BioA Liquid or Distilled Water (fresh 100% water) should be used.
* Excellent Workability and Handling Properties
BioAggregate mixture is easy to manipulate adn apply. Its ease of use will ensure that every procedure to be a successful one. For more ease in handling, the advanced next paste form (BioAggregate Paste) and putty form (BioAggregate Paste Plus) were developed. BioAggregate is raw powderic form for BioAggregate Family Products.
* Pure White Tooth Colored Powder
BioAggregate is not off-white, like other root repair materials. BioAggregate complements the natural color of teeth and all the ingredients are pure white in color. BioAggregate is pure bioceramic material-based aggregate, there is no discoloration induced elements like chromium, iron, manganese, nickel, etc. BioAggregate is eleminating impurities in the raw material choice and production process.
BioAggregate is a biocompatible pure white powder composed of bioceramic nano-particles (below 2 micron meter). Upon mixing BioA with BioA Liquid, the hydrophilic BioAggregate powder promotes cementogenesis and forms a hermetic seal inside the root canal.
