  Abstract:   BiodentineTM is a calcium silicate based cement and it was released in January 2011 by Septodont (France). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the literature regarding the use of BiodentineTM in order to emphasize the performances and effectiveness of this product in comparison with other dental materials used as retrograde filling materials and also to help clinicians make an informed choice about which dental material should use in periapical surgery. According to the published literature, BiodentineTM could be an efficient alternative to mineral trioxide aggregate or other dental cements to be used as a root-end filling material because of its physical, biological and handling properties. Although it seems it has a good behaviour in clinical practice, more clinical studies are required in order to support the indication as a root-end filling material.

Key words: BiodentineTM, root-end filling, tricalcium silicate cement
