Ultrapak® ETM cord is a specially knitted cord impregnated with racemic epinephrine hydrochloride 0.4 ± 0.2mg per inch of cord. Thousands of tiny loops are knitted together in long interlocking chains, making the Ultrapak cord more compressible. The design of the Ultrapak cord enhances any tissue management technique.
Use Ultrapak E for gingival displacement and hemostasis before bonding and/or restorative placement procedures. It is also used to aid in making impressions for fixed prosthetics. Use cords #00, #0, and #1 for hemorrhage control around deep Class III and V preparations and as a bottom cord in a “two-cord” displacement technique. Also use them when bonding veneers. The smaller sizes are beneficial when working with delicate tissues. Use cords #1 and #2 for gingival displacement with size depending on tissue firmness, friability, and degree of space desired.
