VOCO Retraction Paste
VOCO Retraction Paste is an astringent paste with aluminum chloride. It is designed to widen and dry the gingival sulcus, creating the ideal conditions for accurate, successful digital or conventional impressions. The material is a bright turquoise color, providing high contrast to tooth structure and gingiva and ensuring that the paste is visible and can be easily rinsed off after only 1 to 2 minutes. It is said to save clinicians up to 50% of procedural time compared with other methods and can be used as a replacement for or in conjunction with a retraction cord. It features a custom-engineered capsule with a long, fine, flexible plastic tip with a rounded edge rather than metal that is said to avoid damage to the gingiva and allows for precise application. Its 2-stage viscosity makes for simple application.
