Consepsis antibacterial solution is recommended for procedural endodontic disinfection, as a final endodontic rinse prior to canal obturation,1–3 and prior to pulp capping. Consepsis solution should be used after smear layer removal for canal disinfection. Sodium hypochlorite and EDTA solutions should be rinsed and removed prior to using Consepsis solution.
Note: DO NOT mix Consepsis solution (or any chlorhexidine solution) and ChlorCid™ solution (sodium hypochlorite) in the canal as a harmful brown precipitate will form.
Consepsis solution is a 2.0% chlorhexidine gluconate solution free of emollients that interfere with bond strength.
Minimize post-op sensitivity by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the preparation prior to restoring. Use prior to cementation, luting (provisional and/or permanent), and direct restorative placement, as well as procedural endodontic disinfection. Disinfect with near-neutral Consepsis solution prior to pulp capping.
- Provides the longest and most effective antimicrobial activity4
- Reduces potential for postoperative sensitivity
- Increases bond strengths with dentin bonding agents5
- May ensure long-term bond strengths by inhibiting MMP action in the hybrid layers6–8
