Description

Ledermix™ Paste  is indicated for use as an intracanal medicament in teeth undergoing
root canal treatment5,6 in the following situations:

Acute irreversible pulpitis.

 Acute apical periodontitis due to an infected root canal system. Other medicaments then need to be used as subsequent dressings (e.g. calcium hydroxide) to ensure maximum disinfection since the demeclocycline has a limited antibacterial spectrum of activity.

 ​Inflammatory root resorption – both internal and external – as the initial dressing when the resorption is established. Other medicaments then need to be used as subsequent dressings (e.g. calcium hydroxide) to promote hard tissue repair.

 To prevent the development of inflammatory resorption10,11,35 following avulsion of fully developed teeth and other injuries (e.g. intrusion of fully developed teeth) where this type of resorption is likely to occur. Its use in these situations may also reduce the amount of replacement resorption that can occur following these injuries.35

 To reduce post-operative pain by reducing the periapical inflammation.7,8 If the pain is associated with an infected root canal system, then other medicaments then need to be used as subsequent dressings (e.g. calcium hydroxide) to ensure maximum disinfection since the demeclocycline has a limited antibacterial spectrum of activity.

 To inhibit & reduce the number of bacteria within infected root canals. Other medicaments then need to be used as subsequent dressings (e.g. calcium hydroxide) to ensure maximum disinfection since the demeclocycline has a limited antibacterial spectrum of activity.

 Ledermix™ Paste can also be used as a pulpotomy agent in the emergency management of acute irreversible pulpitis5,6 – in these cases, it should only be used as an interim pain relief measure that must be followed by more comprehensive treatment such as pulpectomy and root canal therapy.

Ledermix™ Cement & Hardener

Ledermix dental cement powder combined with Ledermix liquid hardener is a hard setting permanent material. Ledermix combines the antibiotic action of demeclocycline with the anti-inflammatory action of triamcinolone acetonide. Ledermix cement can be used as a dressing or lining under temporary or definitive restorations in teeth with reversible pulpitis with or without pulp exposures.

Ledermix Cement may be used as a subliming for deep cavities where no exposure has occurred, particularly if the dentine is hypersensitive (a). For small pulp exposures, Ledermix dental cement may be used as a pulp capping agent (b).

In both cases, the pulp vitality should be monitored regularly with an electric pulp tester or ethyl chloride. If the pulp is non-vital, endodontic therapy will be required.

Mixing Ledermix dental cement

Ledermix dental cement is prepared by mixing Ledermix Powder with the Ledermix Hardener No.6 S
Setting time is influenced by ambient temperature and humidity.

To Mix

  • Place a small quantity of powder and one drop of liquid alongside each other on a glass slab
  • Blend a small amount of the liquid into the powder using a spatula until a thin homogenous cream is obtained (this takes about 10-15 seconds).
  • Take up the resultant mix onto a spatula blade, then apply it to the site using an amalgam plugger or blunt probe.
