Epidri is cotton pellets saturated with a solution of racemic epinephrine hydrochloride and dried by a technique which retains the activity of the medication. Normal tissue moisture reactivates the medication, which promptly retracts gingival tissue in a manner that causes no tissue damage.
Indications for Use
Use whenever gingival retraction is advisable in dental practice, as preceding impression taking with any elastic impression material; or prior to placement of caps, crowns, bridges; and during tooth preparation. Epidri will help control capillary oozing and tissue engorgement through temporary vasoconstriction. In dental use normal gingival moisture will activate Epidri by facilitating the absorption of the medication. Otherwise, the pellets may be quickly dipped in water just before being applied.
Contains Sodium Bisulfite, a sulfite that may cause allergic-type reactions, including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible persons. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the general population is unknown, but probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more in asthmatic than in non-asthmatic persons.
