Hemostatic Solution is a topical astringent solution of Aluminum Chloride. Gingival retraction can be achieved using a plain gingival retraction cord moistened with Hemostatic Solution.


Discontinue use if irritation appears. For topical application only. Avoid eye contact.


Hemostatic Solution stops gingival bleeding fast. If you should inadvertantly damage the gingival margin during tooth preparation or while placing a strip, band or a cerival matrix, moisten the area with Hemostatic Solution which will control and stop bleeding quickly. Hemostatic Solution contains no epinephrine. The use of vasoconstrictors for gingival retractions and bleeding is potentially dangerous and should be avoided. A plain gingival retraction cord can be dipped in Hemostatic Solution and then placed into the gingival sulcus for its hemostatic action.


For use to aid in cessation of gingival bleeding.


Place 0.5 ml of the hemostatic agent on an absorbent gauze sponge or cotton tip applicator and apply to the bleeding gingival surface under slight pressure for 30 seconds.


Do not use in patients with a known history of hypersensitivity to aluminum chloride.


Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed dental practitioner.
