Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Gingival Retraction Cords Used for at a Dental Practice?

More info

A gingival retraction cord is used in a dental practice to assist in taking a precise impression for dental crowns and dental bridges. It’s designed to move and retract gum tissue away from the prepared areas of the tooth in order to provide access to the entirety of the tooth structure.

Without a dental gingival retraction cord, the gums can get in the way of the impression, which makes it more likely for a dentist to make a mistake during the procedure. A gingival retraction cord helps a dentist work without interference so that they can create successful impressions that fit properly.

There are various types of gingival retraction cords available on the Net32 dental marketplace, such as:

  • Knitted yarn
  • Braided
  • Twisted
  • Z-twist weave
  • Cotton cord
  • Braided- copper reinforced
  • Gel-coated braid
  • Soft twist
  • Braided yarn

In addition to these different types of cords, it’s also important to have the necessary retraction cord dental materials. Some of the gingival retraction cord materials available on Net32 include hemostatic solutions, pellets and cotton, and retraction systems.

Why Are There Different Thicknesses for Gingival Retraction Cords?

More info

Gingival retraction cords are available in different thicknesses in order to suit each patient’s periodontal tissue. The thickness of the dental gingival retraction cord used will depend on the patient and what procedure you’re performing. However, it’s important to choose a cord that is thin enough to be placed comfortably on a patient’s tooth without causing damage. When working in the oral cavity, you always want to proceed gently when it comes to the delicate gingival tissue.

What Are Gingival Retraction Caps?

More info

Retraction caps are another important dental instrument used in the process of making dental impressions. Gingival retraction caps are used to enhance retraction and quicken hemostasis. They are placed on top of the prepared tooth, so that when a patient bites down, the retraction material is pushed into the sulcus in order to create the retraction that’s needed.

Dentists can shop on Net32 to find the right type of gingival retraction caps that they need. Our product offering includes an assortment of gingival retraction caps, such as the 3M ESPE Astringent Retraction Capsules that come in an value pack of 100 and the Premier Retraction Caps, which are available in an array of sizes.
