Gel-Stop™ provides fast-acting, temporary control of surface bleeding. Composed of 100% biocompatible regenerated cellulose, Gel-Stop™ rapidly absorbs blood and transforms into a clear gel to seal the wound with a protective transparent layer, bind and activate platelets, provide support for clot formation, and create an environment for wound healing. The Gel-Stop™ gel remaining at the extraction site is completely water soluble and does not need to be removed because it will be washed out over a short period of time with saliva and normal post-extraction oral hygiene practices.
Gel-Stop™ is packed in twenty (20) individual blister packs with 2 gauze in each sized at 1.9 x 3.8 cm for ease of use and to avoid any cross-contamination issues. Simply puncture the package by pressing down on the foil side. Remove the gauze using dry forceps to avoid sticking. The product can be cut to size if the gauze is larger than the site, but this is generally not necessary and the product can be folded to properly fit using tissue forceps.
