Abstract: The purposes of this investigation were 2-fold: to study the physical properties and sealing ability of Viscosity Enhanced Root Repair Material (VERRM); and, to compare them with Mineral Trioxide Aggregate (MTA). VERRM has a composition similar to mineral trioxide aggregate, with handling characteristics and consistency similar to commercially available materials such as IRM and Super EBA. The pH, setting times, solubility, radiopacity, dimensional change upon setting, and apical sealing ability of VERRM were evaluated and compared to that of ProRoot MTA (GMTA) and ProRoot MTA (Tooth Colored Formula) (WMTA). The results showed that VERRM had physical properties similar to WMTA. VERRM and WMTA showed significantly greater dye penetration than GMTA (p < 0.05) when used as a root-end filling material. There was no significant difference in depth of dye penetration between VERRM and WMTA. Further development of VERRM is indicated to produce a biocompatible root-end filling material with superior handling characteristics. Copyright © 2005 by the American Association of Endodontists.
