Metapex is a combination of:

 # Metapex is a combination of: 
A. Calcium hydroxide + ZOE
B. ZOE + Iodoform
C. Calcium hydroxide + Iodoform
D. Calcium hydroxide + GIC

The correct answer is C. Calcium hydroxide + Iodoform.

Metapex = Calcium hydroxide + iodoform 
Vitapex = Calcium hydroxide + iodoform + Silicon based oil (better flow able property) 

• Ideal material for obturating primary teeth = same resorption rate as of primary tooth roots 
• Both Vitapex & metapex has same resorption rate to primary tooth root but due to better flow able property of vitapex its nearly IDEAL and best material for obturation in primary teeth.
