Q: Applying pressure to the sulcus and scrubbing and rubbing seems counterintuitive to me. Wouldn’t that
technique cause even more bleeding?
A: We admit that it does seem counterintuitive at first. But years of quality hemostasis achieved with this technique
has taught us that it truly does work. Scrubbing and rubbing the hemostatic into the cut tissue infuses the solution
into the capillary openings, and the brush end of the Metal Dento-Infusor tip removes the excess off the cut tissue
so that the only place where coagulum remains is within the cut capillary opening. A diamond bur rotating at a half
million RPMs will cut connective tissue and epithelium, but the soft padded-brush end of the Metal Dento-Infusor tip
will not. In addition, coagulum may accumulate around the tip, but by rubbing and scrubbing, the solution moves down
within each cut capillary opening, plugging and sealing it off. Within 1 or 2 minutes, you will notice no new
coagulum forming. You know the capillaries are sealed, and you know the bleeding is stopped. Should it take longer
than 1 to 2 minutes, we suggest using a stronger hemostatic like Astringedent X hemostatic agent.
Q: I’ve seen other tips like the Metal Dento-Infusor tip for sale from other companies. Why should I stick
with the original?
A: It’s true that other companies have created tips based on the advanced design of the Metal Dento-Infusor tip. But
these tips are not manufactured with the same quality as the original Metal Dento-Infusor tip. When you purchase
tips of a lower quality, you will likely find many defective tips in the pack, which can be frustrating — not to
mention expensive. The more tips you end up throwing away, the more money you end up wasting. Take it from others
who have learned the hard way: don’t settle for knockoffs!
