Gingival Retraction Cords Market: Introduction

A gingival retraction cord is a specific instrument that is used for the displacement of the gingival tissue. A gingival retraction cord is used regarding the teeth in the preparation of a dental crown or a bridge procedure. Gingival retraction cords are biocompatible and are made of non-toxic material, which can be applied and removed easily. Gingival retraction cords absorb blood, crevicular fluids, and medicaments during a procedure, and do not cause harm to the supporting tissue.

A gingival retraction cord pushes the gum tissue away from the prepared tooth margin in order to create an accurate teeth impression. An accurate impression can only be obtained when the gingival tissue is managed properly. A gingival retraction cord is considered to be one of the most tools for the displacement of the gingival tissue.

Based on the depth of the gingival sulcus and different clinical situations, a gingival retraction cord is used, as there is no standardization of the size of these cords. However, these cords are usually available as color-coded or can be distinguished based on their diameter.

Gingival retraction cords can be classified as braided, knitted, and twisted. Braided gingival retraction cords are tightly weaved and easily placed in the gingival sulcus. They are good absorbents and push out the sulcus from one point when greater pressure is applied.

Knitted gingival retraction cords have interlocking loops which passively bend and shape the cord at the time of placement in the gingival sulcus. They have the tendency to compress and compensate during the placement. While using a knitted cord, a non-serrated and smoother instrument is used to avoid the loosening of the cord.

Twisted gingival retraction cords basically have the tendency of fraying and twisting during placement in the sulcus. Twisted cords are not used as often compared to braided and knitted cords. Gingival retraction cords are soaked either in a hemostatic chemical or water before use. Then, they are placed around the gum line for the impressions.

Gingival retraction is considered to be the fastest growing market in the dentistry industry. There are different types of gingival retraction procedures available that are frequently used in combination, such as mechanical, chemical, and surgical. The most widely used technique is the mechanical form of retraction, i.e. gingival retraction cords. Gingival retraction cords are a fast, effective, and safe procedure as compared to electrosurgery and rotatory gingival curettage techniques.

The procedure involving a gingival retraction cord is cheaper and offers a fast retraction method. The gingival retraction cord procedure uses either a single cord or double cord technique for placement in the gingival sulcus. In the double cord technique, cords of two different sizes are used to ensure a precise impression according to the width of the teeth.

The double gingival retraction cord technique is considered to be the safest and most effective technique. A single gingival retraction cord is placed in the sulcus in the single cord technique.

Gingival displacement has become one of the most popular procedure, and the gingival retraction cord is considered to be mostly preferred technique. In low and middle income countries, oral health is considered as a low health priority, as such, increasing the prevalence of oral health issues. However, rising awareness, oral health insurance coverage, improving access to dental services, and the introduction of new technologies are boosting the gingival retraction cords market.

The gingival retraction cord technique requires expertise, as the procedure is pretty sensitive. Difficulty in the placement of the gingival retraction cord can cause discomfort to the patient, gingival bleeding, and root sensitivity. Lack of expertise in this field acts as a retrain for the growth of the gingival retraction cords market. Also, the introduction of new techniques such as cordless gingival retraction, which claims to be a less invasive technique, less time consuming, and provides high patient comfort, can affect the growth of the gingival retraction cords market.
