Dental Materials, Disinfection, Endodontic
Definition : Dental materials designed for oral cavity disinfection during endodontic (i.e., root canal) procedures. These dental materials typically consist of appropriate formulations of one or more of the following products: formocresol, sodium hypochlorite (e.g., 3%), and camphor mono-clorophenol. Endodontic disinfection materials are applied topically and are usually available as diluted solutions. They are used in dentists' offices for disinfection of the root-canal, frequently after extirpation of the dental pulp (i.e., pulpectomy) and/or pulp dressing.
