BIO-C® TEMP is a ready-to-use bioceramic paste for intracanal dressing. It has a great advantage in relation to calcium hydroxide pastes because it presents low solubility and in this way allows the product to be in contact with the canal walls for a long period of time.
As a result, a high release of hydroxyl (OH-) ions is obtained continuously and gradually. Available in a syringe and applicator tips specially developed for the product. The applicator tips are pre-curved and with adequate length, which facilitates the application in areas of difficult access.
pH : The main components of BIO-C® TEMP are Calcium Silicates, which after 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,
making the environment unsuitable for bacterial growth.
Release of Ca2+ ions : The release of Ca2+ ions is key for the biological and chemical action of an intracanal dressing. BIO-C® TEMP presents a constant release of Ca2+ ions
to the tissues being biocompatible, causing no irritation or painful symptomatology.
Particle Size: Its particle size (≤ 2 μm) gives BIO-C® TEMP a better flow and penetration into the accessory canals and dentinal tubules, in addition to a higher product reactivity, which favors the faster release of Ca2+ ions and OH- ions.
Radiopacity : BIO-C® TEMP has high radiopacity (≥ 9 mm in the Aluminum step-wedge), providing a radiographic visualization of excellence.
Easy removal: BIO-C® TEMP has been developed with a formulation that in addition to not setting it is easy to remove.
