Description

  • 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.
  • (Petereit & Kirch, W., 1998). 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 (Arends & David, 1998).
  • 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 .
  • 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.
