Biodentine is a bioactive and biocompatible dentine substitute. It is calcium silicate cement based on Active Biosilicate Technology. In this technology, metal impurities are reduced from calcium silicate based material and to improve the mechanical property of the material. It is available in capsule form that contains powder and liquid in pipette. Tricalcium silicate is the main core component of the cement. Dicalcium silicate, Calcium carbonate (as filler) and Zirconium dioxide (as radiopacifier) are other components present in powder. The liquid part of cement contains calcium chloride (as setting accelerator), water reducing agent and water.
