Calcicur – calcium hydroxide paste

Calcicur is a radiopaque, ready-to-use water-based calcium hydroxide paste with a pH value of >12.5.

Indirect capping for the treatment of caries profunda.

Direct capping when the pulp is opened or a pulpotomy is performed.

Lining of cavities to prevent exposure to acid media when using cements. For temporary filling of root canals

Calcicur -dosage instructions and method of use:

Clean and dry the cavity before applying Calcicur paste in thin layers until the desired thickness is reached. Allow each layer to dry briefly or dry carefully with an air syringe. Do not apply paste to the cavity margins and remove any material adhering to them. Then place lining and filling.

For root canal fillings, first prepare and clean the root canal (hydrogen peroxide 3% and sodium hypochlorite solution) and then insert paste into the root canal with the enclosed application cannula or with a Lentulo.

Then move the paste towards the tip of the root using the Lentulo. Avoid overfilling (apical) and air pockets; then place the filling. Checking the root canal filling by x-ray is recommended. Renew the root canal filling after extended retention time (more than 6 – 8 months).

Temporary filling of the root canal with Calcicur can be carried out either before or after complete root maturation.

Supplementary information/precautionary measures:
Improper storage can cause drying or separating of the paste.
Calcium hydroxide is caustic to skin and mucous membranes.

Avoid contact with the eyes!

In the event of accidental contact, rinse thoroughly with water and seek medical advice if necessary. Do not treat those areas of the hard tooth substance with calcium hydroxide, which serve for bonding to dental materials! Do not apply Calcicur in thick layers, if caries is remaining in the dentine, or as a permanent filling or luting material.


  • After use, remove the application cannula from the syringe and re-seal with the protective cap.
  • Do not use hardened paste.
  • Store at temperatures of 59 °F – 73 °F (15 °C to 23 °C).
  • Do not use Calcicur after expiry date.
