X-PUR Crystal is a water-based potassium oxalate in-office desensitizer made of natural acids and salts that quickly form insoluble calcium crystals. It provides effective patient relief for general root or exposed dentin sensitivity in only a few seconds. This innovative blend rapidly blocks the fluid flow to help provide relief from sensitivity. It is uniquely different than other desensitizers on the market because it does not have to be refrigerated and for extra patient comfort it can be warmed to body temperature or slightly above. X-PUR Crystal is efficient, cost-effective and safe.
Enamel, dentin and cementum are composed of high concentrations of alkaline calcium hydroxyapatite (HAp). X-PUR Crystal reacts with HAp to rapidly form millions of acid resistant chelate precipitates within the dentinal tubules at depths of 7-12 μm and on the surfaces of the vital dentin substrate, this action creates a long-lasting seal, preventing patient hypersensitivity and blocking bacteria penetration to the vital pulp.
Proprietary blend of natural acids and salts
X-PUR Crystal’s low pH formulation (which dissolves immediately and does not harm soft-tissues) already removes the smear layer.

Any appearance of a frosty-white surface indicates the blockage of the dentin tubules. May be applied to a damp surface and dabbed around crown margins and onto the exposed tooth roots that are sensitive to cold or air stimuli. No light curing is necessary.
