what is


Papacárie® is a product intended for dentists. It is an enzyme-based gel specially designed for the atraumatic caries removal, without anesthesia and reducing milling.

This gel is a harmless water-based material, completely safe for all patients as it does not contain toxic or irritating components. Papacarie® has been clinically tested and is safe for all patients, including young children and pregnant women.

Caries elimination

A single drop of Papacárie softens caries and alllows it to be dateched from healthy dentin with a simple curette. Papacárie only reacts in contact with infected dentin, leaving the healthy tissue intact. *

In just 30 seconds, without pain or tenderness, you can remove cavities using only a curette. In most cases, no need for anesthesia and/or turbines.

* “Papain acts only on infected dentin due to the absence of a plasma anti-prosthesis, alpha1-anti-trypsin, which prevents its proteolytic action in tissues considered to be normal”

01. Innovative product

Papacárie® is a revolutionary dental product used in dentistry since 2003. Its main advantage is the elimination of cavities without pain. Papacárie® offers a completely non-traumatic treatment, for the well-being of patients.

02. Enzymatic activity

The enzymatic activity of the bio-encapsulated papain (6,000 U / mg *) in Papácarie® only requires between 30 seconds and 1 minute to dissolve any tooth infected tissue with decay. Only a dental curette is needed to apply and remove Papacárie® gel from infected dentin. In most cases, drilling can be avoided. Note that Papacárie® does not affect healthy dentin.

03. Reacts only with infected dentin

Papacárie® only reacts in contact with infected dentin. No other process or material saves as much healthy tooth tissue as Papácarie®. This guarantees you the best minimal invasive treatment and the lowest amount of restorative material.

04. Avoids anesthesia and considerably reduces milling

By limiting the need for aggressive treatment involving anesthesia and drilling, Papacárie® not only minimize patients anxiety, it also improves the entire dental treatment process. The removal of tooth decay with Papacárie® is much safer than current methods. Multiple teeth in a patient can be treated simultaneously, reducing visit time and patient anxiety.

05. Natural and non-toxic

Papacárie® is a patented formula (since 2003) using the enzyme papain, which has been clinically tested on a wide range of different patients. It is non-toxic and has no side effects. It is safe even in contact with the skin, eyes and other parts of the body. Papacárie® can be used in patients of all ages, even those with systemic illnesses, disability or in pregnant women.

06. No more pain and fear

The use of Papacárie® complies with the ART (Atraumatic Restorative Treatment) technique, with the recommendations of the WHO (World Health Organization) and the FDI (International Dental Federation). The absence of pain and fear during dental treatment promotes better patient experience.

07. Dedicated to the best dental care

We strive to bring the best in dental care through scientific innovation. For more information on Papacarie®, ask your dentist or representative.
