Calcium hydroxide paste containing iodoform is used as a temporary or permanent filling material after pulpectomy. This paste is packaged in a convenient syringe to eliminate messy mixing.

Calcium hydroxide paste with iodoform is a dental material commonly used in endodontic procedures, specifically in root canal treatments. It is a combination of two main components:

  1. Calcium Hydroxide: Calcium hydroxide is a chemical compound that has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. In endodontics, it is used for its antibacterial effect, as it helps eliminate bacteria from the root canal system and reduces the risk of infection. Additionally, it promotes the formation of a hard tissue barrier at the apex of the root, aiding in the healing process.

  2. Iodoform: Iodoform is a yellowish powder that contains iodine. It has antiseptic properties and helps prevent bacterial growth in the root canal. It also possesses a mild analgesic effect, providing some pain relief during the healing process.

When combined, calcium hydroxide and iodoform create a paste that is placed inside the root canal during endodontic treatment. The paste serves several purposes, including:

  1. Disinfection: The antimicrobial properties of calcium hydroxide and iodoform help eliminate bacteria and reduce the risk of infection in the root canal system.

  2. Pulp Protection: The paste acts as a protective barrier between the root canal system and oral tissues, preventing further contamination and promoting healing.

  3. Apexification: In cases where the root apex (tip of the root) is underdeveloped or damaged, calcium hydroxide paste with iodoform can promote the formation of a hard tissue barrier, called apexification, which helps strengthen the root and prevent re-infection.

The procedure for using calcium hydroxide paste with iodoform typically involves the following steps:

  1. Root Canal Preparation: The root canal is cleaned and shaped using specialized instruments to remove infected or necrotic tissue.

  2. Irrigation: The root canal is irrigated with antimicrobial solutions to further disinfect the canal system.

  3. Placement of the Paste: The calcium hydroxide paste with iodoform is mixed according to the manufacturer's instructions. It is then placed into the root canal using a suitable instrument, such as a lentulo spiral or a paper point.

  4. Temporary Filling: After the paste is placed, a temporary filling material is used to seal the access opening of the tooth. This temporary filling is usually replaced with a permanent restoration in a subsequent visit.

The exact protocol for using calcium hydroxide paste with iodoform may vary depending on the specific case and the dentist's preference. It's important to follow your dentist's instructions and attend all recommended follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing and success of the root canal treatment.
