Here is the press release.
ORANGE, CA – July 24, 2009 – Expasyl gingival retraction paste now comes in strawberry flavor. This new version of Expasyl offers the same tissue management qualities—excellent hemostasis and atraumatic gingival retraction in a fraction of the time it takes to use cord—now in a pleasant new taste. A new high-value intro kit includes the lightweight ergonomic gun, new curved tips, and 60% more material than the original.
Expasyl significantly cuts retraction time, is 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 which constricts blood vessels and shrinks epithelial tissue, preventing residual bleeding and separating soft tissue from the dentition. This results in an open, dry sulcus which is the ideal environment for impression-taking. These same clinical benefits are also useful in final cementation of indirect restorations or any restorative procedure that occurs near or below the gumline.
A leading product evaluation service cites that over 90% of impressions received in dental labs today do not have a circumferential visible margin, indicating that soft tissue frequently obstructs the finish line in impressions. Fast, safe and painless, Expasyl is a one-of-a-kind solution to this problem, simultaneously stopping bleeding and expanding the sulcus, which allows impression material to accurately capture crisp margins for great-fitting restorations.
