Dental Cleanser (EDTA Lubricant)
In dentistry, lubricants are used to reduce the friction between dental instruments and canal wall. If the canal is well-lubricated, dentin removal becomes much easier. The most commonly used compound in commercial products for this purpose is 17% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). EDTA can easily get into the canal and coat all the walls along with it chelates the calcium salts to facilitate endodontic instrument penetrations . It is also easy to remove after the procedure is done.
ICPA presents Canogel which contains 17% EDTA with 10% carbamide peroxide in a water-soluble gel base. This lubricant is intended for chemical and mechanical cleansing during root canal preparation. The effervescent action of sodium hypochlorite solution in Canogel makes cleaning of the root canal much more convenient. The use of sodium hypochlorite with the gel promotes internal bleaching of the tooth. This process is enhanced by the release of oxygen from carbamide peroxide.
