Weak membrane (dental clotting agents)

Dental clotting agent and/or weak membrane

Dental clotting agents can also be thought of as weak membranes. I have found Hemcon can handle the worst but is also the strongest so typically hat is my last line of defense. Typically I will use a collagen product or ActCel for bleeding.

Dental clotting agents by name

There are many different clotting agents on the market for dental care. The strongest one is Hemcon. The best for slow bleeders is probably an at home mouthrinse of 5% Tranexamic Acid.

Gelfoam Dental Pack Upjohn – absorable gelatin sponge
Benacel by Unicare Biomedical – biocompatible oxidized cellulose and contains no chemical additives
BloodStop by Life Science Plau – a proprietary formulation, cotton cellulose
ActCel Hemostatic Gauze by Coreva – collagen-like natural substance created from chemically treated cellulose. The material contains no chemical additives, thrombin or collagen
Hemcon by Zimmer – chitosan gauze
PerioPatch by PerioZone – for wounds, injuries, and ulcerations of gingiva and oral mucosa

FloSeal by Baxter – thrombin product for more intense bleeding

Tranexamic Acid – 5% mouthwash that has to be made by a compounding pharmacy.
