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


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


Hemox-A 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 Hemox-A Solution which will control and stop bleeding quickly. Hemox-A 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 Hemox-A Solution and then placed into the gingival sulcus for its hemostatic action.


Soak a cotton tipped applicator or a retraction cord with Hemox-A Solution. Apply to bleeding area with pressure until bleeding is stopped. Should a small dark coagulum appear, flush it away with water. This will have no effect on hemostatic action. Remove the impregnated cord from sulcus. Flush with water and dry with air. If hemostatis is not achieved, repeat application, rinse with water and air dry until bleeding is no longer present.


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


Keep out of reach of children.
