Description

Details

For temporary root canal filling and prevention of reinfection. The points have a guttapercha matrix with 5% chlorhexidine diacetate. Chlorhexidine is known to be highly effective against bacteria and many other organisms including yeasts and fungi even in low concentrations.

 

  • Provides a means for applying chlorhexidine directly into the root canal
  • Radiopaque
  • Easy to apply and easy to remove

COMPOSITION:

  • Chlorhexidine diacetate (5%)
  • Guttapercha
  • ZnO
  • BaSO4
  • Colouring agents

INDICATIONS:

  • For temporary filling of root canals
  • For emergency root canal treatment

ADVANTAGES:

Activ point is ready to use. It is firm for easy introduction into the root canal yet flexible to follow the curves of the canal.

When chlorhexidine comes into contact with moisture it releases cations which combine with the anionic molecules on the surface of the cell walls of the bacteria causing osmosis to malfunction.Chlorhexidine is more soluble than calcium hydroxide for example.

Due to electrostatic bonding and interactions the cations adhere to the dentine, to the enamel and within the oral cavity. Activ point has been specially developed for the conditions in the root canal.

The canal is so small that there is not even room for a drop of water.

The majority of the space is taken up by the activ point, so the relationship of CHX to moisture allows a minimal inhibition concentration

Key Specifications

FAQ'S

Should paste be used with activ point?

  • Paste is not necessary for dissociation.

Is one activ point sufficient?

  • In ISO shaped canals yes. In extremely conical or oval canals further points can be used.

Should activ point be condensed in the canal?

  • No

How long should activ point remain in the canal?

  • Normally 1 – 3 weeks, but in specific clinical cases it should be replaced every 2 – 3 days.

Do activ point need to be sterilised?

  • No

For which indications is activ point recommended?

  • As a temporary filling for root canals, also in cases where treatment with calcium hydroxide is ineffective

How is CHX released from the point?

  • Moisture which has been applied with the point or moisture which flows from the dentine tubules causes dissociation.

Which solutions should be used to rinse the canal?

  • All standard solutions e.g. NaOCl or H2O2 can be used.

Is activ point radiopaque?

  • Yes.
Directions to use

Application: 

  • Point containing chlorhexidine can be introduced quickly and easily into the canal and removed without any residue
  • As always, the canal should be sufficiently cleaned and rinsed
  • An activ point corresponding to the last used root canal instrument, or one size smaller, should be marked with the predetermined length and applied into the canal without condensation
  • A drop of moisture (e.g. sterile H2O) may be used together with the activ point to accelerate the release of CHX.
  • Further dissociation will be initiated by moisture flowing into the canal through the dentine tubules and apex.
  • If the canal is not exactly round more points may be used to ensure sufficient surface contact for the moisture. It is recommended to fold the excess length into the opening of the canal if there is sufficient space. This facilitates removal
  • The opening should be temporarily sealed with standard materials.

Duration:

  • 1 – 3 weeks.
  • The point should then be changed or the canal permanently filled in the usual manner. In certain clinical situations the point should be replaced at shorter intervals (after 2 – 3 days)

Removal of activ point:

  • The stability of activ point is not affected by the release of chlorhexidine in moisture.
  • It can easily be removed with tweezers or a probe even after 3 weeks. No residue is left in the canal.
