Traxodent retraction paste contains 15% aluminum chloride; a proven, effective hemostatic agent. Traxodent can be dispensed directly from the ergonomic syringe into the sulcus or can be used in combination with a Premier Retraction Cap for maximum tissue deflection. The absorbent paste displaces soft tissue and works with the astringent properties of aluminum chloride to create retraction. Fluid is absorbed while Traxodent occupies the sulcus. After 2 minutes, the retraction paste is rinsed away; leaving an open, retracted sulcus. Traxodent provides predictable tissue management for accurately detailed impressions with less retakes. Each Traxodent kit comes with prefilled syringes packaged in individual foils pouches for maximum freshness and applicator tips.

Dr. Bruce Howard needed a reliable system for effective gingival retraction and control of bleeding during crown impressions and fillings.

That day, I numbed tooth No. 9 with local anesthetic. Using my fingers, I repositioned No. 9 to a more buccal and normal eruption position even to teeth Nos. 8 and 10, allowing the patient to close her mouth normally. Four days after the...Read More

As a dentist, I am the one who is usually dispensing advice on dental products. During one recent office visit, however, a patient had some advice for me. "Give this a try," she said. My office is in Plymouth Meeting, PA, which is also the home of Premier Dental. My patient, Theresa, works as a designer for Premier and suggested I give their product, Traxodent, a try. Try It, You'll Like It I was unaware of Traxodent before that discussion, but the first time I used it, I...Read More
Incredible Heme Control without Staining or Clumping
In todays CAD/CAM world of dentistry: Hemorrhage and moisture control is the major key to a successful and proper fitting restoration. In conjunction with using diode lasers, I use Traxodent in every subgingival preparation in order to get the most accurate digital impressions via my Omnicam. I haven't used retraction cord in over 8 years.

Love this product. Have used this in many ways. I use it with and without retraction cord depending upon the case. It is a great hemostatic material. Not sure if I could do C&B without it.
