Astringedent™ X hemostatic agent is an aqueous, 12.7% iron solution for difficult cases of heavy capillary bleeding.
Astringedent X contains equivalent ferric sulfate and ferric subsulfate for difficult-to-stop, problem bleeding. Not as tissue kind as our other hemostatic agents, yet less acidic than competitive iron subsulfate solutions.
- Ultradent's most powerful hemostatic
- Ideal for difficult-to-stop, problem bleeding
- Less acidic than competitive iron substrate solutions
- Designed for use with the Metal Dento-Infusor tip
- Note: Diluted Astringedent X does not equal ViscoStat or Astringedent
Indications for Use
Astringedent X is recommended for cases requiring more profound hemostasis.
Burnish the hemostatic agents firmly against the sulcus until bleeding stops. (No more coagulum forms.)
A blunt, bent cannula with padded "scrub brush" enables infusing and cleaning in the cut sulcus.
Apply firm air/water spray to remove residual coagulum and test tissue for quality, profound hemostasis. If bleeding continues, repeat infusion technique.
After complete hemostasis has been reached, excellent retraction is achieved through the use of Ultrapak knitted cord.
Profound Hemostasis in Even the Most Challenging Cases
Astringedent X and the Dento-Infusor tip facilitate profound hemostasis.
Ultradent’s Tissue Management system continuously sets the standard for superior control and predictability. Confidently achieve any level of hemostasis with Ultradent's line of Tissue Management products.
Dr. Dan Fischer explains the history and progression of Ultradent's Astringedent-X.
"I have been using Astringedent X now daily. I absolutely love it. The tissue retracts nicely, the cleanup is easy (no mess at all), the patients are handling the taste fine, and it has made my job so much easier. Astringedent X washes away well, leaving little to no residue. It keeps the tissue dry and tight long enough for me to complete the procedure...I have been using the "X" for everything."
