Achieving good and predictable results in endodontic treatment relates to awareness in science, techniques, material and procedural skills. In vital pulp therapies, the main goal of the treatment is to maintain the vitality of the pulp, as a consequence, the chosen material must provide good sealing and stimulation to the pulp cells to repair it self. Whilst in necrotic pulp, particularly in cases with periapical disease, treatment emphasizes eliminating the source of infection by proper disinfection and creating a hermetic seal in the root canal to induce healing of the periapical tissue. To achieve these goals, endodontic treatment can not be separated from disinfection and repair materials that should have good antimicrobial activity, dimensional stability, good handling characteristics, adequate adherence ability to tooth structure to provide good seal, biocompatible and able to induce tissue repair. However, until this present time, no material available could meet the needs of all ideal dental material properties. Therefore, studies to provide better material are still on going. Bioceramics has been a promising material widely used in medicine, combining biocompatibility and bioactivity. Recent delicate studies also suggested the use of bioceramics in dentistry, which has been promising in stimulating regeneration of broken tooth due to its biocompatibility and bioactive properties. This brief review will focus on advance improvements in dental materials particularly in endodontics using bioceramics including calcium hydroxide, mineral trioxide aggregates (MTA), Biodentine, iRoot SP, and BioAggregate that has been reported by laboratory and clinical studies to improve the quality of endodontic treatment.
