Teeth assigned to Group 1 received iodoform paste as filling material (iodoform + camphorated parachlorophenol
+ ointment comprising 5.0 mg prednisolone acetate and 1.5 mg rifamycin); those allocated to Group 2 received Calen[R]/ZO paste; S.S.White Artigos Dentarios Ltda., Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) as filling material.
50 mg of catalyst was dispersed in a beaker of 50 ml RhB solution (1.5 x [10.sup.-5] mol/L) or parachlorophenol
(4-CP) (1 mg x [L.sup.-1]) and continuously stirred for 30 min in the dark to reach the equilibrium of adsorption-desorption before visible light irradiation.
Various root canal filling materials used for primary teeth are; zinc oxide eugenol, iodoform containing pastes such as Kri paste (iodoform, camphor, menthol and parachlorophenol
), Maisto paste (iodoform, camphor, menthol, parachlorophenol
, zinc oxide, lanolin and thymol), Guedes-Pinto paste (iodoform, camphorated parachlorophenol
), Rifocort (prednisolone, iodoform, zinc oxide, calcium hydroxide, bariun sulphate, eugenol and parachlorophenol
), Vitapex, Metapex and 3(MIX).1,2,3,4,6,7
(20 ml Bottle),Pulp Devitalizer without arsenic (13-14 Gram),Pastes of Ca(OH)2 & Iodoform twin paste (2gms,Zinc Oxide powder (lOOgm bottle),Eugenol Liquid (Bottle 110 ml),Root Canal disinfectant (Consisting of Parachlorophenol
, thymol, camphor, dexamethasone)
The only respondent who did not teach FS reported teaching the use of 'Caustinerf' (lidocaine 36%, paraformaldehyde 18%, camphor 13% and parachlorophenol
8%, made by Septodont) for vital pulpotomies.
(+.) This solution also contained (in order of diminishing proportion) parachlorophenol
, orthochlorophenol, monochloroacetic acid, 2,6-dichlorophenol, phenol, and 2,4,6-trichlorophenol.
Common were calcium hydroxide, eugenol, iodine po- tassium iodide, glutaraldehyde, formocreosol, cam- phorated parachlorophenol
, metacresylacetate, beechwood creosote, and a range of antibiotic combina- tions.7
Calcium hydroxide (CaO[H.sub.2]) was introduced as early as 1920, [Hermann, 1920] and it was suggested very early on that this material mixed with camphorated parachlorophenol
(CMCP) would induce a calcified barrier across the apex [Kaiser, 1964].
This medicament contains parachlorophenol
(8%), camphor (13%), lidocaine (36%), and paraformaldahyde (18%).
