San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 20, 2013 — Endodontics is a medical field with a promising future with growth attributed to the rising number of endodontic procedures and the increasing complexity of cases due to the world’s aging population, according to a new market report.

Gutta-percha remains the most widely used obturation material, while zinc oxide-eugenol and epoxy resin-based cements are used as root canal sealers and calcium hydroxide is used for intra-canal medication. Biomaterials, comprising bioactive glass, mineral trioxide aggregate, and bioaggregate, constitute another focus area in the Endodontic Supplies market.
