RS1 is a simple carrier based thermoplastic root filling technique using adhesive technology. The advantages of the technique over gutta-percha techniques are that no gaps are present after filling resulting in more resistance to coronal leakage. If required, it can be readily retreated which is not easy with current carrier based gutta-percha filling techniques.
