Product Description

Just as permanent restorations demand specific materials for different needs, temporary restorations also have different requirements, demanding the right material for each case.

Centrix offers four specific and proven temporary filling material formulas, providing optimal results in any clinical situation. Each Tempit product is packaged in pre-filled unit-dose tips so it can be delivered precisely and perfectly every time, directly into the prep using any Centrix C/R Gun.

Select the right Tempit formula for each case, snap the tip into the gun and simply inject into the prep. This unique delivery system requires no mixing, spatulation or messy placement. Tempit saves time, reduces waste and provides the right filling material for each patient’s need and every temporary application.

  1. Remove cap.
  2. Place tip into C-R Syringe.
  3. Squeeze syringe with a slow, steady pressure and inject into a moist cavity.
  4. Tamp down with a wet instrument and dismiss patient.

On return visit, Tempit may be removed with an explorer.

How to Use Tempit-E

  1. Remove cap.
  2. Place tip into dispensing gun.
  3. Inject directly into prep. Tempit and Tempit-E are moisture activated and both set in 5 minutes. Tempit L/C and Ultra-F are light activated.
  4. No cleanup needed. Discard after use.

How to Use Tempit L/C

  1. Rinse and dry cavity.
  2. Place tip into C-R Syringe handle and remove cap.
  3. Squeeze syringe and inject into preparation, using a slow, steady pres sure. Do not force.
  4. In inlay/onlay applications, keep the contact areas free of material with a matrix band.
  5. Light cure all surfaces for a minimum of 45 seconds.
  6. Check occlusion. Excess can be removed with a rotary instrument or scalpel.
  7. Remove tip from syringe and dispose of properly. Sterilize C-R syringe handle.
  8. To remove Tempit L/C, insert a sharp explorer into the material and pull out. Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to methacrylate. Do not use in presence of eugenol.

How to Use Tempit Ultra

Do not use in presence of eugenol

  1. Clean and disinfect prep. On exposed pulp, place a calcium hydroxide pulp-capping agent (Calciject). On vital dentin, a desensitizing liner (Glu/Sense) is recommended. Do not acid etch or use bonding agents.
  2. Prep should be as dry as possible.
  3. Place Tempit Ultra tip in syringe. Remove cap and inject. Use a matrix when indicated. Shape and contour with conventional composite instruments. To reduce stickiness, dip instruments in alcohol or refrigerate Tempit Ultra tips before use.
  4. Light activate with a conventional halogen light source for 40 seconds. Tempit Ultra will cure up to 6 mm deep.
  5. To adjust occlusion or remove Tempit Ultra after it is set, use water-cooled diamonds or burs. Keep away from sources of strong visible light. Do not freeze.

FAQs

Why is there a desiccant packed in every jar of Tempit?

As Tempit is a moisture activated material, it is important to keep the prefilled tubes dry. If exposed to excessive humidity or moisture, the material will set or harden in the tip.

Can you use Tempit with deciduous teeth?

Yes you can use with baby teeth. Remember Tempit sets under moisture. It will not be absorbed, but it will wash out over time.

Is Tempit absorbable?

Tempit is not absorbable by the body.

What viscosity is Tempit?

Tempit is a “medium” viscosity which is similar to Cavit’s white formula.

What syringe would I use to place Tempit?

You can use any Centrix C-R Syringe. For ease of use, we recommend the Snap-Fit Syringe.

What % of eugenol is in Tempit-E?

Less than 5%

What are the benefits of Eugenol?

Eugenol helps sedate inflamed pulp and has antibacterial properties.

What composite materials can you use with Eugenol?

When using glass ionomer restorative material, the dentist will use zinc oxide with eugenol as a temporary filling material.

How does eugenol work?

Small quantities of eugenol diffuse through the dentin to the pulp.

Low concentrations of eugenol exert anti-inflammatory and local anesthetic effects on the dental pulp; thus use of ZOE temporary filling may facilitate pulpal healing.

Should enchants or bonding agents be used with Tempit L/C?

No etching or bonding agent should be used with Tempit L/C. If vital dentin is exposed, it is a good idea to disinfect and treat the dentin with a desensitizer before using Tempit L/C.

Can you use Tempit Ultra as a cavity liner?

No, Tempit Ultra is a temporary restorative material that is not designed as a liner, nor should it be used as a core buildup material.

Will Tempit Ultra adhere to ethyl methacrylate?

No. They do not share the same chemistry so Tempit Ultra will not adhere to ethyl methacrylates when trying to extend margins.

Does Tempit Ultra bond with dentin or enamel?

No, Tempit Ultra was designed to have mechanical retention. When first expressed from tip [before light activated] the material is sticky so as to adhere to the structure. It was designed this way. Tempit Ultra does not shrink when light activated so that the mechanical retention is not compromised and is retention remains tight, which is why the material has to be removed with a burr.

Does Tempit Ultra have eugenol or a sedative in it?

No. Dentists may sometimes select a sedative filling for temporary use in vital, sensitive teeth. Eugenol has been known and used successfully for many years to impart a “calming, soothing effect”. It basically works like a temporary anesthetic on the nerve endings to limit the perception of pain.

What syringe would I use to place Tempit Ultra?

You can use any Centrix C-R Syringe. For ease of use, we recommend the Snap-Fit Syringe.
