Clinical Cases: Calasept
Calasept Plus & Calasept are pure calcium hydroxides. The very high concentration of >41% in combination with optimal calcium ion release generates the extremely efficient and long-lasting bactericidal effect, i.e. killing bacteria. Calasept Plus & Calasept are radio-opaque.
Two cavities after pulpotomy of two small lesions, showing haemostasis in the mesial, first prepared cavity (arrow) and cessation of bleeding in the distal cavity (pic.1).
Appearance of hard-tissue barrier 3 months after pulpotomy (pic.2).
After gross excavation, the deepest layer of carious dentine will be covered with Calasept (pic.1).
After 6 weeks the cement was removed, Calasept washed away and the excavation of the carious dentin completed without pulp exposure (pic.2).

3 months later the periapical radiolucency has been replaced with new bone promoted by the Calasept (pic.2)
