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 so that is my last line of defense. Typically I will use a collagen product or ActCel for bleeding.

Dental clotting agents by name
