SEE ALL INDICATIONS

1 Immediate enamel restoration

FIRST SESSION

Assess pulp vitality by the usual tests.

  1. Isolate the tooth with a rubber dam.
  2. Remove the infected dentin with a round bur and/or a hand excavator. Leave the affected dentin.
  3. Adapt a matrix around the tooth if a wall is missing.
  4. After activating the Biodentine XP cartridge, use Biodentine Mixer to ensure a perfect mix (refer to the instructions of use)
  5. Dispense Biodentine XP in the cavity using Biodentine Gun (refer to the instructions of use), so that the volume of missing dentin is replaced by the same volume of Biodentine XP avoiding trapping air bubbles. Flatten the material without excessive pressure and ensure good adaptation to the cavity walls and margins.
  6. Wait until the end of the setting time before performing the permanent enamel restoration.
    Biodentine XP is compatible with all direct crown restoration techniques and particularly with all types of bonding systems.

2 Non-immediate enamel restoration

FIRST SESSION

Assess pulp vitality by the usual tests.

  1. Isolate the tooth with a rubber dam.
  2. Remove the infected dentin with a round bur and/or a hand excavator. Leave the affected dentin.
  3. Adapt a matrix around the tooth if a wall is missing.
  4. After activating the Biodentine XP cartridge, use Biodentine Mixer to ensure a perfect mix (refer to the instructions of use)
  5. Dispense Biodentine XP in the cavity using Biodentine Gun (refer to the instructions of use), avoiding trapping air bubbles. Ensure good adaptation of the material to the cavity walls and margins. Do not apply excessive pressure on the material.
  6. Model the surface of the restoration.
  7. Wait until the end of the setting time before removing the matrix.
  8. To optimize the mechanical properties of the material and facilitate removal of thematrix, a varnish can be applied onto the surface of the restoration.
  9. Check occlusion.

SECOND SESSION (1 week to 6 months later)

Within one week to six months after placement of Biodentine XP, prepare the cavity according to the criteria recommended for the selected restorative material.

The remaining Biodentine XP material can be considered as sound artificial dentin and permanently left in deep areas of the cavity and in areas adjacent to the pulp chamber. Biodentine XP is compatible with all direct or indirect crown restoration techniques (Inlay/Onlay), and particularly with all types of bonding systems.

3 Pulp capping (direct and indirect)

  6. Dispense Biodentine XP in the cavity using Biodentine Gun (refer to the instructions of use), so that the volume of missing dentin is replaced by the same volume of Biodentine XP avoiding trapping air bubbles. Ensure good adaptation of the material to the cavity walls and margins. Do not apply excessive pressure on the material.

    pulpotomy) step by step until a controlled bleeding. A full coronal pulpotomy can be carried out to the level of the root canal orifices with bleeding arrested.
  5. Adapt a matrix around the tooth if a wall is missing.
  6. After activating the Biodentine XP cartridge, use Biodentine Mixer to ensure a perfect mix (refer to the instructions of use)

  1. Within one week to six months after placement of Biodentine XP, prepare the cavity according to the criteria recommended for the selected restorative material.
  2. Patients should be followed according to current recommendations. The remaining Biodentine XP
    material can be considered as sound artificial dentin and permanently left in deep areas of the cavity and in areas adjacent to the pulp chamber. Biodentine XP is compatible with all direct or indirect
    crown restoration techniques, and particularly with all types of bonding systems.
  3. The remaining Biodentine XP material can be considered as sound artificial dentin and permanently left in deep areas of the cavity and in areas adjacent to the pulp chamber.
