Q 1. How many caries does a Brix3000 tubes yield?
- With its 90 applications (30 per each ml) yields at least 45 caries depending on the cavity size.
Q 2. Does Brix3000 replace the drill?
- In many cases it does. Sometimes, in cases of retentive cavities, the drill is used as a complement to turn them expulsive to facilitate their treatment.
Q 3. What happens if a patient ingests Brix3000?
- Nothing, since it is made of innocuous, authorized active ingredients and excipients in compliance with competent sanitary authorities.
Q 4. What happens when your skin comes into contact with Brix3000?
- Brix3000 does not cause dermal irritation since it has been dermatologically tested.
Q 5. Is it necessary to use any special obturating material to fill the cavity?
Q 6. Is it necessary to keep Brix3000 refrigerated?
- No, it can be store at room temperature. That is one of its main characteristics.
Q 7. What happens if Brix3000 is exposed to high temperature or direct sunlight?
- Store between 4 and 36°C. Do not expose the product to direct sunlight and keep it in its container.
Q 8. Can Brix3000 change natural colour of healthy dentin?
- No, since its composition does not produce chromogenic residue.
Q 9. Can I use Brix3000 to diagnose a possible cavity?
- Yes, due to the fact that it only acts on infected dentin without damaging healthy dentin.
Q 10. What previous preparation does a patient require for the application of Brix3000?
- If necessary, enlarge the diameter of the cavity with manual or rotary instruments if available to get an expulsive cavity. In case of large lesions, apply directly
Q 11. Is it necessary to apply anaesthetic before the application of Brix3000?
- No, because of its characteristics, if necessary, it could be used.
Q 12. Does BRIX3000 require isolation?
Q 13. How much gel should I apply to a cavity?
- Depending on the cavity size, as a general rule, the equivalent to “half a grain of rice”.
Q 14. Can it be used for all types of caries?
- Yes, it can be used for acute and chronic dentin caries.
Q 15. Can Brix3000 be applied to any type of patients?
- Yes, including pregnant women and patients with systemic diseases.
Q 16. Does or could Brix3000 have any kind of contraindications or adverse reaction?
- It does not have adverse reactions and it is contraindicated in teeth with spontaneous pain and fistulas.
Q 17. Can I apply Brix3000 to several caries at the same time?
- Yes, it is one of its main characteristics.
Q 18. What happens if I let it work longer than indicated?
- Nothing, because the enzyme will only work on the infected tissue and it will be inactive when it comes into contact with healthy tissue due to the presence of alpha-1 antitrypsin antiprotease. Brix3000 does not damage healthy tissue.
Q 19. Is Brix3000 innocuous to soft tissue and healthy dentin?
- Yes, due to the presence or alpha-1 antitrypsin antiprotease in the tissue, which deactivates the enzymatic action.
Q 20. Do I have to apply acid etching gel before obturation?
- Identical protocols are used for the different obturating materials.
