Calasept has a very high content of calcium hydroxide (> 41%) giving a high concentration of hydroxyl ions. These generate the high PH value of 12.4 which has a pronounced bactericidal effect, i.e killing of bacteria. A high concentration of calcium hydroxide means long-lasting because the paste can release calcium ions for a long time. Calasept is a ready-to-use paste in air-tight syringes for direct application by using Calasept Paste Needle. The air-tight syringes eliminate the risk of incorporating air into calcium hydroxide turning the material into calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is not possible to re-wet into calcium hydroxide
Composition:- Calcium hydroxide >41%- Barium sulfate- Sterile isotonic saline solution- pH 12.4
Indications:- Temporary root-filling- Pulp capping- Pulp protection- Insulation in deep cavities- Stepwise excavation
1. Long-lasting and very effective2. Smoother consistency3. Direct, quick, and easy application4. Optimal calcium release
Calasept Plus & Calasept are pure calcium hydroxides. The very high concentration of >41% in combination with optimal calcium ion release generates the extremely efficient and long-lasting bactericidal effect, i.e. killing bacteria. Calasept Plus & Calasept are radio-opaque.
Two cavities after pulpotomy of two small lesions, showing hemostasis in the mesial, first prepared cavity (arrow) and cessation of bleeding in the distal cavity (pic.1). Appearance of hard-tissue barrier 3 months after pulpotomy (pic.2).
After gross excavation, the deepest layer of carious dentine will be covered with Calasept (pic.1). After 6 weeks the cement was removed, Calasept washed away, and the excavation of the carious dentin was completed without pulp exposure (pic.2).

Calasept is a well-known brand of products from calcium hydroxide paste for temporary root fillings to a complete assortment of liquids for effective irrigation of root canals. It is a useful range of products for the proper treatment of root canals by any clinic, general practitioners, and endodontic specialists. Find the most frequently asked queries about Calasept here.
Which products are part of the Calasept line?Calcium Hydroxide, Sodium Hypochlorite, Chlorhexidine, temporary filling material, syringes, and irrigation needles.
What's the difference between Calasept and Calasept Plus?Calasept Plus has a smoother texture and can be applied directly deep into the root canal with the help of Flex-needle, a plastic flexible needle. No need to use a lentulo needle. Both release maximum calcium ions.
Why should I make sure that Sodium Hypochlorite and Chlorhexidine do not mix in the root canal?If the two solutions mix, they will build depositate difficult to dissolve or rinse. Always rinse carefully between irrigations.
