Indications for Use
Tissue Management Is the Key to Quality Direct and Indirect Restorations
Hemostasis and Fluid Control
Easy to Dispense with the IndiSpense Syringe
Protects Tissues and Leaves Smear Layer Intact
Provides Profound Hemostasis in SecondsThe faster hemostasis can be achieved, the faster you can perform quality dentistry for the patient. For most cases, ViscoStat provides profound hemostasis in just a matter of seconds.
Kind to Hard and Soft TissuesWith a pH of approximately 1, ViscoStat is one of the kindest hemostatics to be placed against mineralized tooth structure. ViscoStat is formulated with patented binding and coating agents to protect tissue while achieving profound hemostasis and sulcular fluid control in seconds.
ViscoStat is formulated with a patented fumed silica to buffer acidity and offer a more viscous consistency that will not run or drip. This makes precise placement of ViscoStat easy, regardless of the location in the mouth.
Decreases Costly Impression RemakesQuality tissue management is essential to accurate impressions. When impressions are made with fluid present in the sulcus, the quality of the impression suffers and the impression often needs to be remade. Because ViscoStat eliminates bleeding and sulcular fluid, it creates the optimal environment for perfect impressions.
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 can't live without ViscoStat because it takes seconds to save an hour and stops the bleeding when nothing else will. Now I don't have to re-prep for impressions."
"[ViscoStat] is convenient, dependable, and effective in bothersome clinical bleeding situations. It is the product of choice when others fail to do the job."
"ViscoStat has allowed me to take clean, dry, accurate impressions even in some of the most hemorrhagic situations. Thank you! I appreciate it, my lab man appreciates it, and my patients appreciate it."
"ViscoStat can stop bleeding on the cervical area of a crown prep like nothing else I have ever seen! It is a miracle solution! I wish I knew how many thousands of hours it has saved me over the years. Thank you, Ultradent!"
"Controlling bleeding is almost an everyday procedure. To improve fine impressions of crown margins I rely on ViscoStat to control bleeding, leaving a dry open field for impression material."
"Without a doubt I would be lost without ViscoStat! It quickly stops sulcular bleeding, allowing me to place the Ultrapak cord and get an excellent impression on the first try. It is also great to use when bonding composites near gingival tissues. ViscoStat is a vital part of my crown prep and composite armamentarium."
"I use ViscoStat in my practice on an almost daily basis–in fact, it's a product that is a MUST HAVE for me! It's absolutely vital when seating crowns. After removing the temporary crowns and doing try-in of the definitive crowns I always use ViscoStat to control the gum tissue hemorrhage. It works absolutely AMAZING and provides a clean, dry field for me to deliver the crowns without compromising the marginal integrity as the cement cures!"
Is ViscoStat more powerful than Astringedent?
Yes. ViscoStat is a 20% ferric sulfate solution, and Astringedent is a 15.5% ferric sulfate solution.
Can ViscoStat be used with an epinephrine preparation?
No. When a ferric sulfate solution like ViscoStat is used with an epinephrine preparation, a blue/black precipitate will occur.
How do I know that I’ve achieved hemostasis with ViscoStat?
Hemostasis is realized when the new coagulum stops forming. By burnishing the gingival margin with the Metal Dento-Infusor tip, ViscoStat is delivered to the capillary openings, stopping the bleeding. After ViscoStat has been delivered to the preparation and rubbed into the sulcus, test the preparation with a firm air/water spray. If bleeding resumes, rub additional ViscoStat into the preparation and test again. When no bleeding occurs after a firm air/water spray, profound hemostasis has been achieved.
How fast is hemostasis achieved with ViscoStat?
ViscoStat is capable of providing hemostasis in a matter of seconds. Depending on the patient’s periodontal and systemic health, hemostasis may be achieved in as little as 2–3 passes around the sulcus or as many as 20 or 30.
