|Directions To USE|
Clean and dry the cavity before applying Calcicur paste in thin layers until the desired thickness is reached. Allow each layer to dry briefly or dry carefully with an air syringe. Do not apply paste to the cavity margins and remove any material adhering to them. Then place lining and filling. For root canal fillings, first prepare and clean the root canal (e.g. hydrogen peroxide 3 % and sodium hypochlorite solution) and then insert paste into the root canal with the enclosed application cannula or with a Lentulo. Then move the paste towards the tip of the root using the Lentulo. Take care to avoid trapping air or pushing the material beyond the apex, then place the filling. Checking the temporary root canal filling by x-ray is recommended. Renew the temporary root canal filling after extended retention time (more than 6 - 8 months). Temporary filling of the root canal with Calcicur can be carried out either before or after complete root maturation.
