Product Features

The individual packaging of SteriPocket provides a convenient and professional packet for dispensing to patients after surgical procedures. The non-woven gauze are highly absorbent and do not create lint. Each sponge is thick and effective in covering a surgical site without adhering to the wound. SteriPocket also saves time for dental assistants who would otherwise have to pack and sterilize gauze. Patient instructions printed on the package are a good reinforcement of the dentist’s instructions.
