Premier Dental’s new Knit-Pak gingival retraction cord is a non-impregnated knitted cord made from 100% cotton, and designed for tissue displacement and management prior to taking an impression. It is ideal for use in combination with the company’s Hemodent or Traxodent hemostatic agents, according to a press release.
Made of numerous interlocking chains, the knit carries more hemostatic solution when compared with twisted or braided cords, according to the release. Knit-Pak also is said to easily pack into the sulcus because it compacts under pressure. Additionally it cuts cleanly and does not tangle when contacted by a bur. Available in 6 color-coded sizes, Knit-Pak is delivered via container with a stainless steel blade in the cap that automatically cuts the cord when the cap is closed.
