Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great These little capsules are great. They retract tissue as well as any competitor and are more affordably priced. They have enough for a single use so they don't dry out and you don't have to figure out how many tips to buy because they don't have any. You pop it into your composite gun and use that to dispense it. The end of the capsule is really tiny too and reaches right down into the sulcus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new product I have replaced Expasyl with your superior product. The delivery tip is the perfect size and the paste consistency makes delivery easy to control and place. Control of bleeding points is also outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing better Tried many retraction methods, but this one beats them all easily . Fast,reliable, kind to the tissue, and great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! The retraction capsules are by far the easiest paste style tissue retraction devices available today. The very small diameter of the tip combined with the leverage of a composite delivery gun makes it's use simple and predictable. Thanks so much 3M, another great product!
