Calcimol LC is a light-curing, radiopaque one-component material containing calcium hydroxide.
- Indirect pulp capping
- As a cavity liner under all restorative materials
Calcimol LC contains methacrylates, BHT and amines.
Calcimol LC should not be used in case of known hypersensitivities (allergies) to any of these ingredients.
Calcimol LC – instructions for use
During application, ensure that the tooth surfaces are perfectly dry and avoid contamination. Instead of using Calcimol LC, use an aqueous calcium hydroxide product on dentine close to the pulp (< 0.5 mm) and for direct pulp capping.
Calcimol LC can be applied directly from the syringe. To ensure functioning of the non-dripping syringe, the plunger must not be retracted during or after use. Dispense the required amount of Calcimol LC from the tube onto a mixing pad and apply using a suitable instrument.
Cavity linings with a thickness in excess of 1 mm need to be built up in layers and each layer cured using blue light for at least 20 s. If increased adhesion values are required (e.g. when using Calcimol LC for adhesive restorative treatments), a suitable adhesive can be used prior to the application of Calcimol LC. To this end, follow the adhesive manufacturer’s instructions for use.
Carefully remove any excess material prior to light-curing using suitable tools. Do not remove polymerized excess material with a probe but, instead, carefully use a rotating instrument and then place the restoration according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Information, precautionary measures:
Do not use Calcimol LC in the restoration margins. In the marginal area, the permanent restoration should always be placed on caries-free dental hard tissue which, when using the adhesive technique, must have been conditioned accordingly.
Calcimol LC adheres to methacrylate-based products, e.g. crown and bridge materials, temporary sealing materials and certain impression materials (e.g. polyether), which can lead to removal of the cavity lining. In such cases, application of a separating agent is recommended (e.g. Vaseline, glycerine gel etc.). Remove the insulating material prior to placement of the final restoration. Once dispensed, Calcimol LC must not be exposed to direct light (operating light, sunlight) and must be applied as quickly as possible.
Calcium hydroxide has a caustic effect on the skin and mucosal tissue, it must not be allowed to come into contact with the eyes! Phenolic substances, especially products containing eugenol and thymol, impede the curing of Calcimol LC.
The use of zinc oxide eugenol cements or other eugenol-containing materials in combination with Calcimol LC should therefore be avoided. Hold the output window of the light as close to the surface of the restoration as possible, as curing may otherwise be insufficient. Inadequate curing may lead to loss of strength and to discomfort.
Store at temperatures of 39 °F – 73 °F (4 °C – 23 °C) protected from light and moisture. Store the syringe in the sealed aluminum pouch before first use. After opening the pouch, use the material within 6 months and before the shelf life has
expired. Use the original cap to seal the syringe tightly between applications.
