- Diapex is used in root canal filling therapy in either temporary or permanent procedures. The addition of Iodoform to the Calcium Hydroxide improves radiopacity and adds an antibacterial agent to the paste. Diapex stimulates hard tissue formation and apexification. Diapex is also recommended for the treatment of traumatic injuries and cases of root resorption.
- The premixed paste is packaged in a convenient syringe, which eliminates mixing and provides an ideal vehicle for application to the root apex. Diapex may be used in conjunction with Gutta Percha and regular canal sealants.
- Premixed paste eliminates messy mixing, packaged in a convenient syringe
- Excellent accessibility to apex; plunger-type placement improved radiopacity
- Excellent antibacterial and bacteriostatic properties
- Promotes apexification and apexogenesis
Easy techniques - Saves time and money: Eliminate messy time-consuming mixing! Silicone oil based calcium hydroxide paste is pre-mixed with iodoform in a convenient pre-filled syringe. Tips are pre-bent to ensure excellent canal accessibility. This ensures shorter chair time and increases patient comfort.
Quality of ingredients: Made in the USA, Diapex is made from the purest grade iodoform, increasing Diapex’s bacteriostatic and radiopacity properties. Silicone oil ensures complete coating of canal walls and it never hardens so that calcium hydroxide remains active in the root canal, stimulating apexification and abiogenesis. It also allows for ease of manipulation and has superior flow characteristics.
Temporary root canal filling material after pulpectomy.Ideal for the treatment of infected root canal and vital pulpotomies in deciduous teeth.
Note: Diapex does not set and can be removed during a subsequent visit using sodium hypochlorite.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
- Clean and shape the canal
- Insert the pre-bent tip into the apical fifth of root canal length
- Fill the canal. Diapex does not set and can be removed during a subsequent visit using sodium hypochlorite.
- Place a small amount of Diapex at the periapical portion of the canal to ensure apical closure
- Complete obturation using normal Gutta Percha and Sealer techniques
- Place a permanent restoration to seal the access opening
