"GUTTA-PERCHA" was first introduced as a restorative material and later developed into an indispensable endodontic filling material. It has become the "soul" of endodontics, in its development as a specialty. Many articles have dealt about the various techniques of usage of Gutta-percha, but the present article deals briefly with its history, sources, chemistry, commercial manufacture, its evolution and future in dentistry. This article is an attempt to present comprehensively about a material, which we use commonly, yet we know very little about it.
