PURPOSE Primarily to assess the efficacy of cordless versus cord techniques in achieving hemostasis control and gingival displacement and their influence on gingival/periodontal health. In addition, subjective factors reported by the patient (pain, sensitivity, unpleasant taste, discomfort) and operator's experience to both techniques were analyzed. MATERIALS AND METHODS An electronic database search was conducted using five main databases ranging from publication year 1998 to December 2014…

TLDR
Cord and paste retraction produced comparable clinically acceptable gingival gaps, with the cord producing statistically larger gap size.
THE PLACE OF RETRACTION CORDS AMONG THE TISSUE DISPLACEMENT METHODS
TLDR
Results from the overview of the properties of the different tissue management methods indicate that retraction cords take a significant place among them and can be recognised as a classical and well known method.
Influence of the Gingival Condition on the Performance of Different Gingival Displacement Methods—A Randomized Clinical Study
TLDR
For healthy gingiva, the cord technique showed superior sulcus representation compared to the paste technique, but this advantage was lost to a great extent under the conditions of mild gingivitis.
Assessment of Lateral and Vertical Tissue Displacement Obtained by the Retraction Cord and Diode Laser
TLDR
According to a compare between two techniques of gingival retraction regarding the amount of tissue displacement both laterally and vertically, diode laser troughing was more satisfactory to the patient and produced less pain than Laser troughing.
Knowledge Attitude and Practise of Gingival Retraction Among General Dental Practitioners in India
TLDR
The study concludes that dental practitioners are not aware of other cordlessmethods of gingival retraction and still prefer cord and various other generally practised methods.
Gingival Displacement in the Vertical and Horizontal Dimension under the Condition of Mild Gingivitis—A Randomized Clinical Study
TLDR
The marginal gingiva height changes were of such low extent during the follow-up period of 12 months with only minimally higher values for the paste that they cannot be considered as clinically relevant recessions.
Comparison of Gingival Retraction Materials Using a New Gingival Sulcus Model.
TLDR
Pressure generated by retraction pastes and gels depends on the consistency of the retraction material, while pressure generated byRetraction cords increased with increasing size of cords, and Expasyl was found to generate the highest pressure compared to all other retraction materials.
Evaluation of gingival displacement methods in terms of periodontal health at crown restorations produced by digital scan: 1-year clinical follow-up
TLDR
The Er,Cr:YSGG laser troughing procedure produced lower PD, GI, and BOP index scores as compared to the retraction cord and cordless paste system procedures in the 1-year period.

A clinical study on the effects of cordless and conventional retraction techniques on the gingival and periodontal health.
TLDR
All techniques caused a temporary gingival inflammation; the greatest was in Expasyl, which also showed slower recovery, and Cordless techniques did not induce bleeding during or after retraction.

Evaluation of efficacy of different gingival displacement materials on gingival sulcus width.
TLDR
Gingival displacement paste showed better response in achieving horizontal displacement of the gingival sulcus than gedival retraction cord, thereby helping a better marginal adaptation and emergence profile in the extracoronal restoration.
A double-blind randomised clinical trial of two techniques for gingival displacement.
TLDR
Both treatments significantly increased mean concentrations of the three cytokines, with the conventional technique producing the highest cytokine levels and Cordless GD is less stressful for patients and results in lower post-treatment levels of inflammatory cytokines compared with conventional GD.
Effect of retraction materials on gingival health: A histopathological study
TLDR
There was a significant association between retraction materials and the relative degree of injury to the sulcular epithelium and newly advanced material in the form of retraction paste like Expasyl or Magic Foam Cord was found to be better than cord as assessed histologically, it respects periodontium.
The effect of gingival retraction procedures on periodontal indices and crevicular fluid cytokine levels: a pilot study.
TLDR
This pilot study supports the previous research that gingival retraction causes an acute injury that heals clinically in 2 weeks as is indicated by the GI and provides the first evidence that gingo retraction results in an elevation of the proinflammatory cytokine, TNF-alpha, in GCF.
Clinical Evaluation of Three New Gingival Retraction Systems: A Research Report
TLDR
Magic foam cord retractions system can be considered more effective gingival retraction system among the three retraction systems used in the study.
