DSI DS-Cord Retraction Cord

DS-CORD is used for gingival retraction and prevention of gingival leakage during the preparation of the cavity in the cervical area. The Twist structure of the cord provides excellent characteristics with predictable results every time. DS-CORD is made of knitted loops that enlarge by contacting the saliva, in 3-8 minutes the cord gently retracts the gingiva from the tooth. This is done for much better visualization of the tooth's margins. The cord is made with outstanding quality and does not cause gingival bleeding and soft-tissue injury. It packs easily, remains in place, and thanks to the color it is visible in the sulcus and resists penetration by even the smallest packing instruments. DS-CORD can be used for any impression-taking.
