Mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA), is made up of hydrophilic fine particles that harden in the presence of dampness or blood. It constitutes the salts of tricalcium alluminate, tricalcium silicate and bismuth oxide, which makes it biocompatible and radiopaque when compared to classic materials for root filling such as amalgam, cements, Super-EBA, and IRM. Being an advantageous material it is beneficial to be used in most common peri-apical endodontic diseases. This case report centres the attention on the technical skills as well as on the healing ability of the most commonly used material. This article also discusses the amazing repair property of the material in the case.
