N2 UNIVERSAL ROOT CANAL SEALER WAS AND IS THE ONLY ROOT CANAL SEALER SUBMITTED TO THE FDA FOR APPROVAL. THE APPROVAL HAS PROGRESSED TO PHASE III, THE FINAL STEP BEFORE APPROVAL.  NO OTHER ROOT CANAL SEALER HAS EVER APPLIED FOR FDA APPROVAL.

MORE MISLEADING INFORMATION

A website known for misleading, inaccurate,  and just plain wrong statements about Sargenti N2 recently posted misinformation stating “Chicago Dental Society cancels AES/Sargenti clinic tables at 2011 Midwinter Meetings.”

THE TRUTH  The Chicago Dental Society cancelled ALL table clinics at their 2011 meeting. How’s that for manipulating the truth!

AS REPORTED BY THE AMERICAN ENDODONTIC SOCIETY

Bisphenol-A is in many popular root canal sealers but it is not in N2. The amount is not the question, it is accumulative. It is banned in Canada and the United States FDA is checking into it.

The January 2010, Issue No 120, page 2, and the Winter 2009 Issue 117, AES Newsletters have articles on this carcinogen that causes breast cancer, impotence, and possibly many other cancers.

Canada declares BPA toxic sets stage for more bans OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canada has declared bisphenol A to be a toxic chemical, prompting calls for far-reaching curbs on the industrial chemical that is used in everything from the linings of aluminum cans to coatings on electronic till receipts.

MISLEADING CLAIM:  Sargenti paste still widely used despite controversy, DrBicuspid.com

TRUTH:  Based on our research, many dentists believe that the use of Sargenti Paste is widely supported and used worldwide.  It is the largest user of any root canal sealer in Europe and approved by the EU 

MISLEADING REPORT:  NBC 10 in Philadelphia Report on a dental patient that on aired September 24, 2009 Embalming fluid has 5 – 29% formaldyhyde… The most widely used formulations of Sargenti Paste include 6.5% formaldyhyde. There is no doubt that Sargenti Pastewas the cause of the dental patient’s damage. Her dentist testified to using it on her under oath.

TRUTH:  The patient’s dentist did testify to using it but admitted it was not the cause of the problem.  Expert witness in the case, Dr. Wahl, said that Sargenti Paste was definitely NOT the cause of the problem.  The case was settled out of court.  Sargenti Paste was not determined to be the cause of the problem.  

Misleading Claim:

AES Removes Newsletters from Website; Cancels 2009 Meeting
The SOS’ efforts to stop the use of Sargenti Paste have likely resulted in the removal of AES Newsletters from their website thus reducing the riskof dentists being swayed by the misinformation published in those newsletters. The 2009 Annual Meeting which would have been held at the same time and place as the ADA convention was cancelled. The 2008 annual meeting was attended by a mere dozen or so dentists.

TRUTH:  AES (American Endodontic Society) Newsletters are mailed to all of the Society’s members, as well as select dental schools and American Dental Association staff.  The AES held a successful, well attended, meeting in 2008. The meeting was held inconjunction with the American Dental Association’s Annual Session.  The 2009 annual meeting was held successfully in Honolulu, Hawaii in October 2009, again  in conjunction with the American Dental Association’s Annual Session.
