TCA Crystals in 25g bottle (David Craig Galenicals) – Purchased from Corinda Day & Night Pharmacy, 661 Oxley Road Corinda or Chemist Warehouse.
TCA is ordered as crystals. Be careful, it is highly corrosive and will burn tissues. Always dispense just a few crystals into a glass or plastic Dappens glass at the begining of the appointment. Leave it for approx 5 mins. It will hydrate from the atmosphere and become a liquid. A fine flat plastic can be dipped into this small amount of liquid, and then wiped into the gingival sulcus.
Always keep some bicarbonate soda handy to neutralise an accidental spill. Also have Vitamin E oil ready to put on tissues that are inadvertently burned. (Easiest to buy Vitamin E capsules and break one open if/as needed)
