Unfortunately, we have not tried the EndoSeal MTA and are unable to give you a complete or accurate answer. The presence of alumina will likely increase the toxicity. Furthermore, the presence of Calcium Sulfate mean the material will be resorbable. Lastly, bioceramic fare better when combined with a coated gutta percha. As a result, we would recommend that you use this sealer with either lateral or vertical condensation instead of Hydraulic Condensation.
The MTA particle size is too large to be used as a sealer. This is why MTA is actually not used as a sealer at the present time. Furthermore, the gray MTA that contains bisthmus oxide can stain teeth. If you don't have access to BC Sealer (Premix) and really want to use bioceramics then you can use the Septodont RCS that's calcium carbonate based. But it does require hand mixing. Cheers!
