    1. Retract

    A great impression starts with controlling tissue and moisture. The extra-fine tip of the 3M™ ESPE™ Retraction Capsule delivers haemostatic paste where it belongs—right into the sulcus—to gently retract tissue and control bleeding.

    Fast, accurate bite registrations.

    3M™ Imprint™ 4 Bite Registration Material offers great flow properties, no-slump consistency, ample working time and a 60-second setting time. It does not lock into undercuts or interdental areas. Material hardness and low flexibility after setting makes it easy to cut, trim and position.
