Customer Reviews
3M™ Cavit™ Tube Key, 71270 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
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?
