[18] MTA Fillapex has low bond strength to dentin and questionable biomineralisation. Lesser remnants of root filling material in the MTA Fillapex subgroup is consistent with the result of the previous study, as when MTA contacts with the phosphate-containing fluid leads to the formation of calcium-deficient B-type carbonated apatites.
