Background/Objectives: One of the most difficult situations facing dentists is having extensive lesions in immature permanent teeth. Dental surgeons will face situations where significant pulp exposure is inevitable, reducing the frequency of direct pulp exposure that indirect in-pulp treatment faces. In dealing with important pulp treatments, the main challenge is to avoid bacterial recontamination after treatment is complete. MTA is an excellent evaluation of biocompatibility and sealing ability compared to conventional materials Methods/Statistical analysis: The ingredients are mixed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The RetroMTATM 50 samples were allocated at random ten by county. The surface hardness of the sample is a digital knoop hardness test device. The intensity of the surface curvature of the specimen was measured using an Instron. Findings: The Ortho MTA II (RetroMTA)TMis a high purity bioceramic manufactured from a hydroponian manufacturing process. Information on the various irrigants response of Ortho MTA II (RetroMTA)TM is limited despite the increase in the use of muscle root canal treatment materials care drug Ortho MTA II (RetroMTA)TM. This study was conducted prior to the application of the Ortho MTA II (RetroMTA)TM to assess and compare physical breakdowns that may occur when using various commercially available root canal cleaning agents. Improvements/Applications: According to the results of the study, all of the physical characteristics were lower than the controls. However, there is no statistically significant difference.
