Prophylaxis use of Calcium Carbonate with spray-dispensing apparatus
Clinical trials conducted over a period of 18 months under the direction of a Dentist and two dental hygienists demonstrated the qualities of calcium carbonate in the removal of dental plaque, stains, and tartar in a comfortable and painless way for the patient yet simple and efficient for the Dentist and dental hygienists.
The absence of abrasion or erosion on the dentin and enamel surface as well as the absence of lesions on the periodontal tissues when compared to products already on the market, make calcium carbonate a viable product.
However, there are a number of application parameters to be respected.
The air pressure must not exceed 3 Bars while operating the spray-dispensing machine.
A low water pressure, not exceeding half of air pressure, must be maintained while operating the spray-dispensing machine.
The function of water in the spray application is to rinse the treated surface. Air is the only support for the calcium carbonate. Moreover, a high pressure water/air spray, without the addition of calcium carbonate can provoke lesions of the soft tissues.
This product must not come in contact with any solvents, vapours or traces of mercury. Any contamination of calcium carbonate with these products may provoke a denaturisation and a possible augmentation of toxicity.
It is recommended to use simple protective laboratory glasses during the procedure.
Traces of calcium carbonate could accumulate on the surface of the cornea during a dental hygiene treatment; while not being dangerous, this can lead to a slight irritation. If an important quantity of calcium carbonate comes in contact with the eyes, they must be rinsed with running water for a minimum of 15 minutes.
