BenaCel® dental dressing is made of biocompatible oxidized cellulose and contains no chemical additives. BenaCel® dental dressing adheres to moist oral mucosa and forms a temporary barrier protecting the wound from further irritation and pain. When placed in the extraction socket, BenaCel® dental dressing forms a gelatinous scaffold in the blood extrude, facilitating the development of a stable blood clot to prevent dry socket formation.
BenaCel® dental dressing is designed for use in the extraction site and the management of bleeding and alveolar osteitis (dry socket). It may also be used as a wound dressing for the temporary management of oral surgical wounds, such as operative, postoperative, donor sites and traumatic injuries.
