For difficult Bleeding A must-have for every office, Astringedent X is used when a stronger, more potent hemostatic is required. This aqueous, 12.7% iron solution is ideal for difficult cases of heavy capillary bleeding. Astringedent X contains equivalent ferric sulfate and ferric subsulfate with a pH of ~1.0.
Not as tissue-kind as our other hemostatic agents, it is still less acidic than competitive iron subsulfate solutions. Note: Diluted Astringedent X does not equal ViscoStat or Astringedent. Uses Use Astringedent X when a stronger, more potent hemostatic is required, and when the attainment of quality hemostasis may be more challenging, i.e., in cases of difficult-to-stop, problem bleeding.
