Intracanal medication

Commom questions
What is the difference between BIO-C® SEALER, BIO-C® REPAIR, and BIO-C® TEMP?

BIO-C® SEALER is a root canal sealer used primarily for obturation; BIO-C® REPAIR is a repair material; BIO-C® TEMP is a dressing interappointment intracanal temporary medication.

Does BIO-C® TEMP set inside the canal?

BIO-C® TEMP has properties by design that prevent it from setting in the canal allowing it to be used as an interappointment dressing material, being easy to be removed.

When to use the product?

In cases when instrumentation is unfinished, painful symptomatology, or presence of exudate.

How to perform the BIO-C® TEMP application?

Insert the cannula close to the apical third and apply BIO-C® TEMP gradually withdrawing the cannula to obtain complete filling of the canal(s). Use a temporary restoration material to promote coronal sealing.

How to remove the BIO-C® TEMP from inside the canal?

BIO-C® TEMP should be removed using Sodium Hypochlorite associated with the use of a K-type file, using brushing movements. After irrigate with 17% EDTA solution and, if possible, activate it with an ultrasonic tip in 3 cycles of 10 seconds duration.

How often should the medication be replaced?

BIO-C® TEMP provides a gradual and slow release of the components of its formula, aiming at apical tissue repair. Therefore, unlike calcium hydroxide that requires frequent replacements, BIO-C® TEMP disregards new applications. Persistent symptomatology should define re-evaluation of the procedure.

What is the antibacterial base of the product?

The main components of BIO-C® TEMP are Calcium Silicates, which, after being hydrated, produce Calcium Hydroxide that dissociates into Ca2+ and OH-. The released hydroxyl ions (OH-) are responsible for a significant increase in the pH of the surrounding tissue, which makes the environment inappropriate for bacterial growth.

What is the bactericidal effectiveness against the CaOH?

We have better pH maintenance results from BIO-C® TEMP over 30 days than Ultracal and Metapaste, which are based on calcium hydroxide. (Prof. Manoel Sousa-Neto, Project 4: Short and long-term monitoring of the intracanal ionic release capacity and pH promoted by BioC-Temp. Compare statistically with CaOH2);

It has a direct relationship of effectiveness between higher pH values and a long time with antimicrobial activity.

The results of antimicrobial activity by direct and indirect contact presented in the attached article, inindicated that the antimicrobial activity of BIO-C® TEMP is similar to Ultracal:
