Hemostasis is an integral and very important aspect of surgical practice. As a rule, most bleeding from dental surgery can be controlled by pressure. When the application of pressure does not yield satisfactory results, or where more effective hemostasis is required, hemostatic agents are used. These agents act to stop bleeding either mechanically or by augmenting the coagulation cascade. Some of the newer agents that are available to the dental profession have been presented.
