Abstract

The one-session technique presented in this clinical evaluation is supported in part by the high clinical and radiographic success rate obtained. The principal advantages of the Vitapex paste are that it resorbs from the apical tissues in one week to two months, is apparently harmless to permanent tooth germs, is radiopaque, does not set to a hard mass, and is easily inserted and removed.
