Customer Reviews
Cavit™ Temporary Filling Material is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 jars dried out after 1 month. I have purchased 3 jars, and it is not inexpensive, and all 3 have dried out in less than 1 month with more than 1/2 the jar remaining to toss out. A waste of money. What is going on with manufacturing or formula?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cavit dries out too quickly This used to be my temporary filling of choice for thousands of root canals. I can no longer use it due to the lack of seal and the material drying out too quickly. I have trued different versions and various lot numbers. I have had to switch to a different material.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from it dried out more than 8 months before expired i bought it about 3 months ago, used it a few times and today opened it and it's dried hard, it crumbles, and won't form a ball. anyway to soften it up again? will adding some oil to it soften it?
