The Barricaid® syringe is designed for both Direct and Indirect Placement.
For direct intra-oral placement- The syringe must be discarded to avoid any potential patient cross-infection.
For Direct Dispensing - Using a sterile, dry 2 x 2 gauze, dry the buccal or lingual tooth surfaces adjacent to the surgical site.
Remove the tip from the disposable syringe. Dispense the material at the juncture of the cervical one-third of the teeth and the margin of the surgical site.
For Indirect Placement -
Using a sterile, dry 2 x 2 gauze, dry the buccal or lingual tooth surfaces adjacent to the surgical site.
Place a thin layer of lubricant on a clean mixing pad. Dispense the desired amount onto the pad.
If the application will be delayed more than 1 or 2 minutes, cover the dispensed dressing to prevent premature curing by extraneous light.
With your gloved finger, lightly lubricated (sterile surgical jelly, such as K-Y Jelly, J&J), roll the ribbon of dressing off the pad.
Place it on the cervical area to the teeth and the surgical site as per your normal placement technique.
