Pre-Mixed Calcium Hydroxide
Pre-Mixed Calcium Hydroxide with Iodoform
Formerly Diapex, DiaPex Plus is the same trusted calcium hydroxide paste with iodoform that has been used by many dentists around the world. Rated as Top 100 New Product in Dentistry Today many years in a row, DiaPex Plus is used in root canal filling therapy in temporary procedures. The addition of Iodoform to the Calcium Hydroxide improves radiopacity and adds an antibacterial agent to the paste. DiaPex Plus stimulates hard tissue formation and apexification. DiaPex Plus is also recommended for treatment of traumatic injuries and cases of root resorption.
The premixed paste is packaged in a convenient syringe, which eliminates mixing and provides an ideal vehicle for application to the root apex. DiaPex Plus may be used in conjunction with Gutta Percha and regular canal sealants.
*Note*: DiaPex Plus does not set and can be removed during a subsequent visit using sodium hypochlorite.
