Premixed calcium hydroxide paste with barium sulfate root canal treatment

diapaste_box

Diapaste™ is an alternative to one of Diadent’s popular products, Diapex®. Diapaste is a premixed calcium hydroxide barium sulfate paste for root canal treatment that is iodoform-free. The premixed paste is packaged in a convenient syringe, which eliminates mixing and provides an ideal vehicle for application to the root apex.

Diapaste is used in cases of:

• Apexification
• Treatment for infected root canal
• Temporary root filling & pulp capping
• Root canal filling for primary teeth
• Disinfection after pulp extirpation
• Vital pulpotomy

The product’s many advantages include that it is: premixed and prefilled, so it saves time; stable and does not solidify nor separate; radiopaque and antibacterial; water soluble, and therefore, easy to remove, and biocompatible.  Flexible tips also result in easy access to apex.

syringe

Diapaste can be used for several different applications

tooth3Root Canal Preparations – Before using Diapaste, clean and shape the canal using conventional methods.
*Note: the outside diameter of the tip is approximately equivalent to a #40 file.

 

 

tooth1

Temporary Intracanal Medicament – Apply gentle pressure on the syringe plunger, and the paste will begin to reach the apical foramen. At this point, slowly withdraw the syringe. Once the canal is filled with Diapaste, complete the treatment by placing a temporary restoration to seal the access opening. Diapaste is water soluble and is easy to clean and remove.

 

tooth2

Deciduous Teeth – Insert the syringe tip near the apex. Gently extrude Diapaste into the canal from apex to coronal access. Take precautions to ensure excess Diapaste is not extruded past the apex.
*Note: Diapaste disposable tips are packaged in a hygienic blister package. Tip should be replaced after each patient. Tips may be bent according to preference.

Research has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated.

Acoustic streaming and cavitation have been proven to significantly enhance cleaning of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient to create acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
