Parkell, Inc. debuted its new economical DryZ™ gingival retraction paste during the ADA Annual Session this week in San Francisco.

“It is being received extremely well,” said Chuck W. Ferrara, Parkell’s Director of Customer Satisfaction. “Ninety-percent of the customers who came by the booth want to see the product or are asking about the product.”

The fast-acting retraction paste stops bleeding and seepage that may interfere with impression taking. It is said to be great for tissue management when seating restorations, placing rubber dams, bleaching teeth and restoring subgingival cavities.

The light green color of the retraction paste makes the material easier to detect. It can be used alone or with retraction cord and impression caps.

The paste can easily be removed with an air/water syringe and leaves no residue to interfere with impressions or seating restorations. It also can be used for tissue management.

Using the paste can save clinicians at least 30% compared to other similar products, according to Ferrara. Parkell offers a 45-day trial period to anyone trying the paste for the first time. If someone does not like the product for any reason, they need only call and Parkell will pick up the product, no questions asked.
