Definitions for "Calcium oxide"
a white crystalline oxide used in the production of calcium hydroxide
Also called "lime". The white oxide of calcium usually prepared by heating limestone (CaCO3) in a kiln. Effective in the treatment of endodontic pathology, such as severe periapical infections. Ensures specific internal permanent asepsis.
