VOCO Introduces New Astringent Retraction Paste


The new material is indicated for the retraction of marginal gingiva and moisture management of the gingival sulcus prior to impressions.

VOCO's Retraction Paste

VOCO has released its new Retraction Paste. It is an astringent paste with aluminum chloride that is designed to widen and dry the gingival sulcus, creating the ideal conditions for accurate and successful digital or conventional impressions.

Retraction Paste features a custom-engineered capsule with a long, fine, flexible plastic tip 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. First, the paste easily flows under low pressure out of the capsule into the sulcus with minimal extrusion force. Once in place, its viscosity increases to remain stable as it temporarily widens the sulcus. At 0.3 g per cap, VOCO’s Retraction Paste capsules contain enough material for up to 3 teeth.

Primarily used for the retraction of marginal gingiva and moisture management of the gingival sulcus prior to analog or digital impressions, Retraction Paste can also be used to assist in the cementation of temporary and permanent restorations and as preparation for Class II and V restorations.

The material comes in a bright turquoise blue color, providing high contrast to tooth structure and gingiva and ensuring that the paste is visible and can be easily rinsed off after only 1-2 minutes. VOCO’s Retraction Paste is said to save clinicians up to 50% of procedural time compared to other methods and can be used as a replacement for, or in conjunction with a retraction cord.
