Indications for Use
ViscoStat is recommended for dental and oral surgery procedures to arrest surface capillary bleeding. Such procedures include fixed prosthodontics, restorative-operative, periodontal treatment, etc. ViscoStat is also recommended for retrofillings, canine impactions, gingivectomies, and as a fixative for pulpotomies. ViscoStat can also be used to prevent leakage caused by sulcular fluid contamination during direct bonding procedures.
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.
Tissue Management Is the Key to Quality Direct and Indirect Restorations
ViscoStat's viscous, non-drip formula achieves hemostasis efficiently. The Metal Dento-Infusor® tip infuses the hemostatic agent into capillaries, forming a cork-like "plug," then wipes coagulum away.
Thoroughly rinsing ViscoStat is an important step in testing hemostasis while also creating a field for optimal bonding with no compromise in bond strength.
Hemostasis and Fluid Control
ViscoStat and Ultrapak cord are ideal for controlling fluids (blood and sulcular). Use a firm air/water spray to remove excess hemostatic solution.
Successful bonded restoration, two weeks post-op.
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.
An overview of Ultradent's Tissue Management product line.
"Without a doubt I would be lost without ViscoStat! It quickly stops sulcular bleeding, allowing me to place the Ultrapak cord and get an excellent impression on the first try. It is also great to use when bonding composites near gingival tissues. ViscoStat is a vital part of my crown prep and composite armamentarium."

Q: How fast is hemostasis achieved with ViscoStat?
A: ViscoStat is capable of providing hemostasis in a matter of seconds. Depending on the patient’s periodontal and systemic health, hemostasis may be achieved in as little as 2–3 passes around the sulcus or as many as 20 or 30.
Q: Is ViscoStat more powerful than Astringedent?
A: Yes. ViscoStat is a 20% ferric sulfate solution, and Astringedent is a 15.5% ferric sulfate solution.
