"Highly recommended as effective and easy to use for control of bleeding, tissue management, and pulpotomies. Rating +++++.”1 Astringedent is well-suited for a variety of dental and oral surgery procedures to arrest surface capillary bleeding. Such procedures include fixed prosthodontics, restorative-operative, periodontal treatment, etc. Astringedent is also recommended for retrofillings, canine impactions, gingivectomies, and as a ‘“fixative” for pulpotomies. Astringedent can be used to prevent leakage caused by sulcular fluid contamination during direct bonding procedures. Soak an Ultrapak® cord in hemostatic and isolate the tissues. Follow with a firm air/water spray.
