Ledermix Paste and Ledermix Cement have been used clinically for over 57 years with numerous research papers and clinical studies to support their efficacy and usefulness. The major components of these materials are a corticosteroid and an antibiotic – hence, their indications for use should be based on these components. The major use for Ledermix Paste in root canal treatment is to reduce inflammation and thereby reduce or avoid pain and to manage inflammatory resorption. It can also be used to manage infected canals, particularly if used in conjunction with calcium hydroxide. Ledermix Cement is an extremely useful material for conservative pulp treatments such as pulp capping and pulpotomy. Its short-term anti-inflammatory action combined with the beneficial effects of the cement base components (i.e. calcium hydroxide and zinc oxide-eugenol) make it an ideal material for these procedures.
