Five mineral oxides (5MO) is a new dental material, its color is white, developed as alternative to mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) which generally used to treat endodontic accidents and complications. It was developed by Doctor Maisour Ala Rachi in Syria at Faculty of Dentistry, Damascus University, where this material came as the result of a research, according to which Dr. Maisour Ala Rachi attained a doctorate degree PhD in (2007), this research was supervised by Professor Doctor Mohammad Salem Rekab, where Dr. Maisour Ala Rachi made a comparison between MTA and local gray portland cement (GPC) (Syrian Company, Tartous, Syria), and he found that the two materials have similar properties through histological, radiographical, and clinical criteria. So, 5MO was developed based on that research.
