Consepsis™ V

2% Chlorhexidine Antibacterial Viscous Solution

Consepsis V solution is a viscous formulation of Consepsis2% chlorhexidine antibacterial solution. The viscosity of Consepsis V solution makes it the perfect disinfectant in most cases where you want to have more control than a liquid will give you. Consepsis V solution can be used as an antibacterial agent in the canal(s) between appointments.

Note: Do not use Consepsis V solution in a root canal with sodium hypochlorite, as a harmful brown precipitate will form.

Technical Details

Use in Place of Formocresol as an Anti-Bacterial Agent

In case of emergency treatments when there isn’t enough space created to place calcium hydroxide, Consepsis V solution can be placed as the interappointment medicament. Use a 29 ga NaviTip tip to express Consepsis V solution in the canal, place a cotton pellet, and seal with temporary cement.

IndiSpense Syringe

​Verify flow of all syringes prior to applying intraorally. If resistance is met, replace tip and recheck. To avoid cross contamination, do not re-use tips.


Disinfecting the Canal

​Use Consepsis V solution to disinfect canals during endodontic procedures, as an intracanal medicament, or before obturation.


Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I use Consepsis V solution with methacrylate sealers?

    ​All of Ultradent's irrigants, lubricants, and medicaments are compatible with methacrylate resin sealers.

  • Why is Chlorhexidine used in endodontic procedures?

    ​An antibacterial agent, chlorhexidine is ideal for endodontic use due to its ability to bind to hydroxyapatite, creating a long-lasting antimicrobial effect. Chlorhexidine does not replace sodium hypochlorite as an irrigant because it does not break down organic tissue as well as NAOCl.
