Revitalisation of the pulp cavities
Pure Portland cement® or Medcem MTA® is ideal for capping pulps opened by trauma on permanent teeth with unfinished root growth and open apex.
If teeth are devital or gangrene, the pulp cavities of such teeth can possibly be ”revitalised”.

Sterilisation of the pulp cavities is done with a mixture of 3 antibiotics. This AB mixture consists of Ciprofloxacin, Metronizadole and Cefuroxim.
The pharmacy Dr. Hörmann produces the mixture in single dose capsules for the Swiss market. The capsules and the required penetration media can be ordered from the pharmacy Dr. Hörmann with prescription under the name TreVitaMix.
Tooth saving box in combination with antibiotics and cortisone
NoResorb is a mixture of Tetracyclin and Dexamethason. This mixture can be added to a tooth saving box.
NoResorb mode of action:
Tetracyclin gives the cells on the root surface a better chance of survival outside of the oral cavity, and enables them to grow back into the damaged periodontal ligament.
Dexamethason penetrates the skin of the root and prevents resorption and ankyloses (bone growth directly into the dentine).
The pharmacy Dr. Hörmann produces the mixture in single dose capsules for the Swiss market. The capsules and the required penetration media can be ordered from the pharmacy Dr. Hörmann with prescription under the name NoResorb.
The Miradent SOS Dentobox can be ordered in the webshop of Medcem GmbH.
