Description

Packing retraction cord is fairly tedious and often frustrating for most dentists. Today’s retraction cords are difficult to handle: the first half of the packed cord often pops out of the sulcus during placement of the remaining half. Or, the cord frays when cut, reducing its ability to move tissue effectively.

FIRST STRING Retraction Cord is a unique, 100% cotton braided retraction cord that features a tight weave for easy handling. Unlike many cords, non-impregnated FIRST STRING holds its shape as you manipulate it throughout the placement procedure, maximizing tissue retraction. You’ll notice a significant difference when working with FIRST STRING - it actually stays where you place it! FIRST STRING gives you superior tactile feel to ensure you do not disrupt the connective tissue fibres, which in turn ensures that you prevent gingival recession and biologic width impingement.

To further eliminate the “frustration factor” that comes with most cords, FIRST STRING strands simply will not separate and will not fray when cut. And you won’t risk penetrating the cord or seizing strands with your packing instrument.

Use the smallest possible retraction cord appropriate for the preparation at hand. We’ve made FIRST STRING available in 4 sizes: XS, S, M, and L. In fact, FIRST STRING XS is one of dentistry’s smallest retraction cord. Use FIRST STRING with TISSUE GOO, a 25% aluminum sulfate hemostatic gel, for the ultimate in tissue management.

1. Pack First String Retraction Cord trhough the syringed Tissue Goo, using either a single or double cord technique. Allow sufficient time for the tissues to retract.
