Praveen Kumar Bali, Shivekshith A K, Allamaprabhu C R, Vivek H P


Nothing is more valuable then preservation of the natural tooth, which reflects the general health of the patients. Dental caries is the most prevalent dental disease which needs various endodontic treatment procedures in order to maintain the tooth in healthy condition. With the advancement in material sciences, various new materials had evolved in dentistry.  One such material is calcium enriched mixture cement which is class of dental materials conciliates excellent biocompatibility with high osseoconductivity that render them ideal for endodontic care. The present article gives the overview of   newly developed novel endodontic cement.
