Temporary Calcium Hydroxide Root Canal Treatment Paste                  Bactericidal - Bacteriostatic - Radiopaque - Non-Setting

TempCanal has a pH > 12 and provides the full benefits of calcium hydroxide in root canal therapy.

For routine use as an antimicrobial intracanal dressing between office visits to disinfect the canal and prevent flare-ups.
For complicated cases involving infection, traumatic injury and other instances where calcium hydroxide therapy is indicated.

Routine Treatment Between Office Visits

  • pH > 12 disinfects canal
  • Prevents flare-ups
  • Replaces hazardous formocresol
  • Easily removed with file and irrigation

Treatment of Complicated Cases

  • Promotes favorable periapical healing
  • Treats infection, abscesses and periapical lesions
  • Treats traumatic injuries, avulsed and luxated teeth
  • Treats root resorption, root fractures and perforations
  • Stimulates apexification and apexogenesis
  • Treats pus, hemorrhage exudation and weeping canals

Preferred Delivery System

  • Screw syringe dispensing system
  • Flows through sterile 22- and 25-gauge needles directly into canal
  • No mixing, no condensing
  • Easily removed from canal with file and irrigation
  • Radiopaque


Clinical Procedure

Clinical Situations Where Pulpdent Calcium Hydroxide Products Can Be Used In Root Canal Therapy

Pulpdent Paste, TempCanal and Multi-Cal are used in endocontics for all the following clinical situations outlined by Dr. G.S. Heithersay:









1. Exudation control; 2. Large periapical lesions; 3. Antibacterial dressing; 4. Temporary root filling; 5. Apical inflammatory resorption; 6. Inflammatory resorption following trauma; 7. Apical internal resorption; 8. Internal-external root resorption; 9. Perforations; 10. Transverse root fractures; 11. Incompletely developed pulpless teeth

Hard Tissue Formation with TempCanal, Multi-Cal or Pulpdent Paste

This patient lost his maxillary left central incisor due to a traumatic injury.

1. Radiograph shows external root resorption on the mesial aspect of the maxillary right central incisor. The root canal was filled with TempCanal to promote healing. 2. Radiograph taken 3 months later shows remineralization of the mesial aspect of the tooth.

Treatment of Periapical Lesion and Internal Resorption with TempCanal, Multi-Cal or Pulpdent Paste

The patient presented with considerable discomfort and extreme sensitivity to hot, cold and percussion.

1. Diagnostic radiograph shows internal resorption and periapical lesion of the maxillary left lateral. TempCanal was placed at this visit (not shown). 2. Radiograph taken 3 months later shows TempCanal in place and periapical healing occurring.

3. Radiograph taken after 13 months shows the root canal obturated with Pulpdent Root Canal Sealer using the Pulpdent Pressure Syringe. Note the slight extrusion of sealer beyond the apex and the internal resorption space obturated with sealer. 4. Radiograph taken after 19 months shows internal resorption controlled and periapical lesion healed. Note lamina dura. Also shows a portion of the root canal sealer removed and the entire tooth reinforced with Pulpdent HardCord dual cure composite restorative using DenTASTIC as the bonding adhesive.

Treatment of Persistent Periapical Lesion with TempCanal, Pulpdent Paste or Multi-Cal

The Patient had been under treatment for 4 years for a persistent periapical lesion with constant drainage of his left central incisor. Retrograde surgery for removal of the cyst was scheduled. As a temporary measure before surgery, the pulp was removed and TempCanal was placed in the canal. The maxillary left lateral also tested non-vital and was endodontically treated and obturated with Pulpdent Root Canal Sealer at the same visit.


1. Radiograph shows periapical lesion involving the maxillary left central and lateral incisors. 2. Six weeks following the placement of TempCanal, radiograph shows trabeculation occurring in the periapical area. The surgical procedure was postponed, the TempCanal dressing was changed, and the case was followed until healing of the periapical lesion occurred.
3. One year follow up shows healing without surgery and final obturation with Pulpdent Root Canal Sealer using the Pressure Syringe technique.

This Products May/ should prevent accidental over  dispensing as it has  Screw syringe dispensing system as comapre to the Push-Plunger which requires accurate Judgement for despensing .
