Polyoxymethylene is an antiseptic, which coagulates proteins providing necrosis of pulp tissue. Lidocaine hydrochloride is an anesthetic component, reducing pain risk during tooth pulp devitalization. Eugenol and m-cresol are antimicrobial components.
Paste DEVIT provides prolonged and painless pulp Devitalization within 1-5 days.
Adding of zinc oxide and eugenol at the ratio 1:1 (in terms of volume) allows to use the material in pediatric dentistry.
Pulp Devitalization before its extirpation
Drug idiosyncrasy. Do not misuse.
