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
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%).
