The Retraction Cord That Stays Where You Place It

Click to download: Clinical Product Sheet

Packing retraction cord can be tedious and often frustrating for many dentists. Today's retraction cords can be difficult to handle: the first half of the packed cord often pops out of the sulcus during placement of the remaining half. Often the cord frays when cut or gets caught in your bur during preparation, reducing its ability to move tissue effectively.

FIRST STRING™ Retraction Cord is a unique, 100% cotton braided retraction cord that features a tight weave for easy handling. Unlike many cords, non-impregnated FIRST STRING holds its shape as you manipulate it throughout the placement procedure, maximizing tissue retraction. You'll notice a significant difference when working with FIRST STRING – it actually stays where you place it! FIRST STRING gives you superior tactile feel to ensure you do not disrupt the connective tissue fibres, which in turn ensures that you prevent gingival recession and biologic width impingement. 

To further eliminate the "frustration factor" that comes with most cords, FIRST STRING strands simply will not separate and will not fray when cut. And you won’t risk penetrating the cord or seizing strands with your packing instrument. Use the smallest possible retraction cord appropriate for the preparation at hand.

FIRST STRING is available in 4 sizes: XS, S, M, and L over 100" of retraction cord in a bottle.
