Premixed Calcium Hydroxide with Iodoform
Rated as Top 100 New Product in Dentistry Today many years in a row, Diapex is used in root canal filling therapy in either temporary or permanent procedures. The addition of Iodoform to the Calcium Hydroxide improves radiopacity and adds an antibacterial agent to the paste. Diapex stimulates hard tissue formation and apexification. Diapex 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 may be used in conjunction with Gutta Percha and regular canal sealants.
*Note*: Diapex does not set and can be removed during a subsequent visit using sodium hypochlorite.
