ORANGE, California--Expasyl gingival retraction paste now comes in strawberry flavor.

This new version of Expasyl offers the same tissue management qualities-- hemostasis and atraumatic gingival retraction in less time than it takes to use cord--now in a new taste. A new intro kit includes the lightweight ergonomic gun, new curved tips, and 60% more material than the original.

A leading product evaluation service cites that more than 90% of impressions received in dental labs today do not have a circumferential visible margin. This indicates that soft tissue frequently obstructs the finish line in impressions.

Expasyl is a solution to this problem, simultaneously. It stops bleeding and expands the sulcus. This allows impression material to accurately capture margins for restorations.

Expasyl cuts retraction time, can be less traumatic to surrounding tissue, and the composition of the material prevents bleeding and crevicular fluid from obscuring the detail of an impression. It contains a 15% concentration of aluminum chloride. This constricts blood vessels and shrinks epithelial tissue, preventing residual bleeding and separating soft tissue from the dentition.

This results in an open, dry sulcus that is an environment for impression-taking. These same clinical benefits are also useful in final cementation of indirect restorations or a restorative procedure that occurs near or below the gumline.
