3M™ Retraction Capsule is indicated for the temporary tissue retraction of the marginal gingiva to provide a dry sulcus when the periodontium is healthy, such as: Taking impressions (material-based or digital) Preparation of temporary casts Preparation of Class II and V fillings Retracts tissue gently A great impression—even a digital impression—starts with controlling tissue and moisture. Our capsule’s extra-fine tip delivers hemostatic paste right into the sulcus to gently retract tissue and control bleeding. Save time Unlike gingival retraction cords that can be difficult and time-consuming to place, the 3M retraction capsule is a fast, convenient and effective solution for gingival retraction. With its extra-fine tip, the 3M retraction capsule delivers a 15% aluminum chloride astringent paste right into the sulcus, pushing the gingival tissue away from the tooth and allowing you to capture a detailed impression of the preparation margin.
PRECAUTIONS: The product must not be used in patients suffering from a diseased periodontium, open furcations or exposed bone. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: For how long can the paste be left in the sulcus? Typically, the paste should be left in the sulcus for a minimum of 2 minutes to achieve good retraction results. If a hemostatic device is applied too long it may exert unwanted negative effects on the tissue health. Therefore, the hemostatic retraction paste must be rinsed off completely. How long can one store the capsule outside of the blister? The capsule must be taken out of the blister immediate
