Voco has introduced Calcicur, a radiopaque water-based calcium hydroxide paste. Calcicur is designed to be ideal for use with direct pulp capping, after pulpotomies, and with indirect pulp capping in cases of deep decay.
Containing 45% calcium hydroxide, Calcicur provides high pH values (>12.5) for an antimicrobial effect and the promotion of secondary dentin formation. Calcicur’s high pH values also allow for the indication of temporary root canal fillings, the disinfection of root canals, and the lining of cavities to prevent exposure to acid media during usage of cements.
Calcicur’s endo tip is designed to make the root canal treatment easy by minimizing time and effort. Calcicur can be applied immediately underneath any lining or restorative material. It is available in a ready-to-use 2.5-g syringe that prevents moisture loss.
