Dental Hemostats for Bleeding Control

Bleeding control is an essential aspect of any dental surgery. Excessive bleeding can complicate procedures, making it difficult for the surgeon to work. Excessive bleeding can also have physiological disadvantages and may compromise the patient outcome. To effectively control bleeding, dental hemostats are used. These come in several forms, and several combinations may be used depending on the procedure.

Explore the different types of dental hemostats available at Dental Implant Technologies®and order in confidence from our secure online store with cost-competitive pricing and the highest quality products.

Access to the Best Surgical Hemostats Will Improve Patient Outcomes

Clinicians that have access to the best surgical hemostats can ensure better surgical outcomes for their patients.

Surgical bleeding is associated with a higher risk of mortality and morbidity when looking statistically across all surgical areas. Because of the potential complications, various unique surgical hemostats have been developed to aid surgeons. While the risk of mortality and morbidity related to excessive surgical bleeding is relatively low in dental surgery (at least when compared to some of the more invasive surgeries), managing bleeding throughout a procedure is still essential.


For dental procedures, there are three main types of dental hemostats used:
  • Surgical Hemostat Clamps: Often referred to simply as hemostats, these stainless-steel handheld instruments are designed to control bleeding by grasping and manipulating tissues with clamping force to restrict blood vessels. Available as straight-beaked and curved hemostats.
  • Surgical Hemostat Sponges: These specialized collagen sponges are designed to quickly control bleeding by promoting hemostasis. Collagen is naturally derived and one of the most effective materials used to achieve hemostasis without pressure.
  • Surgical Hemostat Tissue Glue: This type of product is applied directly to tissue to seal wounds and control bleeding almost immediately.

Dental Implant Technologies® supplies a complete range of dental hemostats available to order today, including tissue glue, sponges, and clamps.

Kelly Hemostat Stainless Steel Clamps

Kelly hemostat clamps are supplied by dental implant technologies®. The Kelly hemostat design (also known as Kelly forceps) is a general-purpose hemostatic tool used by dental surgeons. Kelly hemostats are shaped like scissors with blunted ends. Options like the Straight Beak 140mm Kelly Hemostat (SKU: NX-HMOKS) are designed to clamp blood vessels to control bleeding.

Curved options are also available, like the 140mm Kelly Hemostat Curved (SKU: NX-HMOKC).

The Advantages of Curved Hemostats for Dental Surgeries

Access isn’t always easy in the oral cavity, especially when bleeding control is required while working with another instrument in the mouth. For times when access is difficult, curved hemostats can be used.

Curved hemostats differ from straight-beat hemostats thanks to a visually subtle but functionally significant curve added to the beaks. This allows for access into the back of the mouth and all along the posterior region to the first bicuspid before the anterior. Curved hemostats can also be used for soft tissue around the anterior teeth if access is required from the side or at an awkward angle.

The use of curved hemostats does more than just enhance access. It can improve the safety and success of a surgical procedure by limiting complexity and errors in the process. Options like our 140mm Kelly Curved Hemostat are essential for any practice.

Curved hemostats are identical to straight hemostats in other functioning areas, including the addition of serrated beaks for safely gripping tissue, and locking handles.

Our curved hemostats are made from surgical stainless steel to ensure low irritation around soft tissue, ease of cleaning and sterilization, and durability. Whether replacing old curved hemostats that have pitted or otherwise degraded over time or filling a surgical inventory for a new practice, the best curved hemostats are available at Dental Implant Technologies.

Mosquito Hemostat Stainless Steel Clamps

Another option for clamped bleeding control is the Mosquito hemostat design. Mosquito hemostats are technically Kelly hemostats, although they typically feature smaller ends for finer manipulation and access, which is ideal for surgeries in the oral cavity.

Like the standard Kelly design, Mosquito hemostats control bleeding by clamping blood vessels. At Dental Implant Technologies®, clinicians can order Mosquito hemostat clamps in both straight and curved configurations. For professionals who routinely perform oral surgery, it’s recommended to keep both curved and straight Mosquito hemostat clamps in the surgical inventory so that the right solution is always available.Mosquito hemostats feature locking mechanisms to ensure consistent clamping force on tissue to achieve hemostasis during surgical procedures.

Mosquito hemostat clamps are often suited to procedures performed at the anterior region where longer beaks would limit maneuverability and ergonomics.

Using Collagen Sponges as Dental Hemostats

Collagen is the most efficient natural dental hemostat. When blood comes into contact with collagen, the platelets adhere to the material, spread, and become a cohesive aggregate. This stops blood flow and allows for rapid wound stabilization. Clinicians that need a dental hemostat in pad form will find that our reliable HeliSTAT® Collagen Sponges (SKU: HE-1690-ZZ) are the best option.

Derived from highly purified Type 1 bovine collagen, HeliSTAT® sponges don’t swell when controlling bleeding and they are biocompatible, making them safe for topical bleeding control.

Tissue Glue as a Hemostat for Dental Surgery

For the closure and protection of minor surgical sites, a tissue glue product can be used. Dental Implant Technologies® supplies tissue glue kits that are packed in individual doses. Specialized cyanoacrylate adhesive quickly sets to control bleeding and stabilize minor wounds and is particularly effective for smaller incisions, such as those intended to treat mucogingival defects.

Cleaning and Sterilizing Surgical Hemostats

Cleaning and sterilizing surgical hemostats is simple and effective thanks to modern solutions available to dental professionals.

Ultrasonic cleaning is the most effective way to clean surgical hemostats and other instruments that have complicated hinged and locking mechanisms. Ultrasonic cleaning of surgical hemostats is also effective for removing bio-contaminants and debris from the small grooves along the serrated length of the beaks. An ultrasonic machine will provide far more effective cleaning than hand cleaning alone. Before ultrasonic cleaning, stainless steel instruments can be hand-washed with a neutral PH enzymatic detergent/pre-soak.

As is standard practice, sterilization can be achieved with a steam autoclave device after cleaning. This is the most commonly used method of sterilization for dental practices. Our stainless steel instruments are suited to autoclave sterilization and will provide countless uses before the high-quality material begins to show signs of wear.

Autoclave sterilization at 121°C for 15 minutes at 15 pounds of pressure will remove microbes and their spores, ensuring that equipment is safe and ready for use.

Following correct in-office cleaning and sterilization procedures will ensure that practices of any size get the best return on investment from surgical hemostats and other instruments.
