Traxodent® Hemodent® Paste Retraction System
Predictable hemostasis and soft-tissue management in minutes
Figure 1 | Tissue management is an everyday challenge in restorative dentistry. Dentists are constantly challenged with varying degrees of bleeding that interfere with everything from intraoral scanning to impression taking, cementation, temporization, and gingival restorations.
Previously, dentists had to stock an armamentarium of products to achieve effective tissue management. Premier’s Traxodent® Hemodent® Paste Retraction System provides one solution for hemostasis and retraction.
Traxodent is an easy to use, gentle, fast, and absorbent paste that provides effective hemostasis and retraction. The soft paste produces gentle pressure on the sulcus while it absorbs excess crevicular fluid and blood. The 15% aluminum chloride creates an astringent effect without irritating or discoloring surrounding tissue. The sleek syringe has a bendable tip, providing easy application of Traxodent. After 2 minutes, it is easily rinsed away, leaving an open, dry, retracted sulcus.
Dentists can achieve the desired hemostasis and retraction in multiple ways, including hemostasis and moisture control prior to composite restorations, tissue management prior to veneer or crown cementation, hemostasis after removal of a temporary crown, postoperative hemostasis after laser troughing, and before a CAD/CAM scan.
Traxodent can be used by itself or with a retraction cap, which can be used over the Traxodent if a clinician needs more hemostasis or retraction. For those dentists who favor the double-cord technique, simply use Traxodent in place of the second cord, which often is the more difficult cord to place.
Whichever technique you choose, the results will be the same. Traxodent provides predictable hemostasis and retraction in less time and with greater comfort, further solidifying the reputation of Premier Dental, a family-operated business in its 4th generation and a leading brand in the world wide dental market.
