Astringedent hemostatic is an aqueous, 15.5% ferric sulfate solution with a pH of ~1.0. It's well suited for a variety of dental procedures, and because it's more aqueous than other hemostatic agents, it's ideal for soaking retraction cord.
- Known as the “classic” hemostatic agent
- Achieves profound hemostasis in seconds
- Eliminates sulcular fluid contamination for optimal bonding
- Decreases costly impression remakes
For Profound Hemostasis, Use with the Metal Dento-Infusor
Hemostatic agents are only as good as their delivery method. The Metal Dento-Infusor® tip is the best, most effective way to deliver Astringedent hemostatic to the sulcus. Its padded brush end is used to rub the hemostatic into the cut capillaries, providing profound hemostasis. It also effectively removes superficial coagulum.
Tissue Management Technique Step by StepSee a list of products used
1Burnish the hemostatic agents firmly against the sulcus until bleeding stops. (No more coagulum forms.)
2A blunt, bent cannula with padded "scrub brush" enables infusing and cleaning in the cut sulcus.
3Apply firm air/water spray to remove residual coagulum and test tissue for quality, profound hemostasis. If bleeding continues, repeat infusion technique.
4After complete hemostasis has been reached, excellent retraction is achieved through the use of Ultrapak® knitted cord.
“I recently had to practice at another dental office that only used Expasil* for hemostasis. It made me realize how much I love Astringedent for its ease of use. Astringedent is easily applied and works instantly, unlike Expasil. Now that I am starting my own solo practice, I will have Astringedent available for all of my operative procedures.”
