Consepsis™

2% Chlorhexidine Antibacterial Solution

Endodontic Uses

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.


Bonding Uses

Consepsis solution is a 2.0% chlorhexidine gluconate solution free of emollients that interfere with bond strength.


Minimize post-op pulpitis and sensitivity by thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the preparation prior to sealing and restoring. Use prior to crown cementation, luting (provisional and/or permanent), and direct restorative placement, as well as procedural endodontic disinfection. During pulp capping, acidic etchants and hemostatic agents can cause disastrous effects on the pulp. Disinfect with near-neutral Consepsis solution, which can also be used to passively control nonhyperemic bleeding.


Use Consepsis solution prior to DBA application to disinfect root surface with sensitive root treatment or when bonding.

  • Provides the longest and most effective antimicrobial activity4
  • Reduces risk of recurrent caries
  • 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

Shipping laws require that the 480ml bottles be shipped by ground transportation. The 480ml bottles are currently only available in the USA.
