Easy-to-Follow Surgical Instrument Care and Handling Solutions Explained

Here is to the easy-to-follow, Four-step solution for Surgical instrument care:

Cleaning and Disinfection:

This step helps protect instruments and users handling them. Whenever possible, instruments used during surgery should be disinfected and cleaned immediately after use. If any blood or organic tissue is left to dry, it will make cleaning difficult, thus damaging the instrument. This task can be performed using various cleaning brushes and cleaning solutions.


All hinged instruments which have any “metal to metal” action at the screw or box lock. This helps to prevent any spotting, staining or rusting. Spray lubes are one of the popular types of lubricants used for this purpose.


After all Each instrument has a specific function; hence, a regular inspection should be conducted to ensure that they work properly. Scissors’ blades should open and close smoothly; check forceps for proper jaw alignment; hemostats and needle holders to ensure jaw tips close correctly. If you are unable to make a decision on the right method, you can always contact the manufacturer. It is always better to inspect fine instruments using an illuminated microscope. In order to avoid mishandling the instruments, they should be kept on special racks to ensure sharp instruments don’t touch each other.


If autoclaving is the preferred method of sterilization, make sure the proper pouch size is used and ratchet locks are unlocked. Instruments locked during autoclaving can develop cracked hinges due to heat expansion.  Always try to follow an appropriate drying cycle to prevent the formation of excessive moisture and stains leading to corrosion.

TC Instruments VS Standard Instruments

TC Instruments (TUNGSTEN CARBIDE) VS Standard Instruments

TC Instruments VS Standard Instruments

What makes Tungsten Carbide Instruments Special:

Pure metals and compound metal alloys are used in various industries all over the world. There are some metals that are more useful and versatile than others.

By the same token, in the field of medical sciences and healthcare industry, especially dental instruments industry, there must be an extreme scrutiny regarding what material shall be used for instruments that are in use on daily basis. After all, people who operate in the realm of Dental Industry have to use many of their instruments to physically operate on their patients while keeping the area they work in completely clean and sterile. Fortunately, tungsten carbide has proven to be the metal alloy above all others that possesses the physical properties, versatility, and usefulness to stand up to the needs of healthcare professionals across the world.

Properties of Tungsten Carbide:

Tungsten carbide’s incredible properties are born form marrying carbon and tungsten together. The resulting alloy is dense, resistant to scratching, pitting, and rusting, and is nearly as hard as diamond. In fact, carbide is three times harder than even stainless steel and can be sterilized just as easily.

Tungsten Carbide Instruments by AR Instrumed:

Because of the properties that tungsten carbide possesses, there are several dental instruments that are made out of that material. Some of these include:

  1. Forceps and needle holders TC:
  2. Scissors TC :
  3.  Surgical pin and wire cutters TC:
  4. Wire Cutters TC:
  5. Bone Rasps:
  6. Bone Crusher Titanium TC:

Dentist Smart Choice:

When dental cosmetic and maxillofacial surgeons use forceps and needle holders that are tipped with Tungsten Carbide, they are able to enjoy a firmer grasp on whatever they might be holding onto thanks to the density and texture of the material. In addition, the incredible hardness of tungsten carbide allows it to be sharpened to a finer point than stainless steel or titanium.

Edge for Dentists/Surgeons:

Instruments with the tips and coating of Tungsten Carbide means the better performance through precision in the work. Due to the sharpness that carbide blades sport, surgical pin and wire cutters can also be used to sever material with far greater precision.

Periodontal instruments

Periodontal instruments

Periodontal instruments

Periodontal instruments Together with Periodontal instruments including periodontal curettes, periodontal scalers are used to remove calculus from teeth.

While curettes are often universal in that they can be used on both supra- and sub-gingival calculus removals, scalers are restricted to supra-gingival use.

Use of a scaler below the gum line is likely to damage the gingiva (gums).

Design & Materials of Periodontal instruments

The composition of hand instruments are continuously evolving, which is why it may be a challenge to find the proper instrument for the right clinical situation. With the broad variation of instrument designs and materials, it allows dental professionals to implement periodontal therapy with reduced strain and increased comfort levels for both the clinician and the patient. The following are some factors to consider with the design of periodontal scalers:

Texture – the texture of the instrument handle increases control, such as finger grip, and reduces hand fatigue.
Weight – the handle’s hollowness allows the instrument to be more lightweight and increases the clinician’s tactile sensitivity.

Design Characteristics of Periodontal instruments

Typically, periodontal scalers have pointed backs, but some new scaler designs have working ends with rounded backs as well. Additionally, they have triangular cross sections; this limits their instrumentation use to above the gingiva (supragingival) to prevent any tissue trauma.Periodontal scalers also have pointed tips and faces perpendicular to the lower shank.


Periodontal instruments  Techniques

In addition, there are several characteristics of a calculus removal stroke that are vital to the effectiveness of periodontal instrumentation; these include stabilization, adaptation, angulation, lateral pressure, characteristics, stroke direction, and stroke number.

Angulation is the relationship between the face of the instrument and the tooth surface, ideally 70º-80º when using periodontal scalers.

The stroke directions include vertical, oblique and horizontal strokes, all leading away from the soft tissue to avoid tissue trauma.

Overall, the working-end of the instrument is only moving a few millimeters at a time. Simultaneously, the clinician must roll the handle of the instrument to maintain adaptation throughout, to prevent any soft tissue injury.

Moreover, following these instrumentation principles would improve the quality of life for the clinician as well.

Dental students need to know every facet and purpose of orthodontic instruments.

You’ve got to be at the very least a master of your own domain when it comes to your familiarity with every minute detail of function and your own efficient and comfortable confidence with them while performing your procedures. You must master all this before you hit the ground running in your chosen field of orthodontia.

Here’s a swift and thorough explanation of orthodontia’s most common instruments. Bookmark this page and keep it handy. We’ve narrowed the most used instruments down to ten. Take a look.

Dental Mirrors of Orthodontic instruments

Allows dentists and dental assistants to view a mirror image of those teeth located so far in the back of the mouth that their visibility is either very difficult or impossible to examine with the naked eye.

Periodontal Probes of Orthodontic instruments

Usually long, thin and outfitted with a blunted end to relieve patient discomfort—is primarily used to measure pocket depths around the tooth to determine the health of the surrounding specialized tissues that both surround and support the teeth.

Orthodontic Pliers

Designed for grasping auxiliary attachments inside the mouth,orthodontic pliers are outfitted with tips rounded tips for comfort and safety.

Bite Sticks of Orthodontic instruments

When it’s time to purchase orthodontic pliers, we recommend that you exercise caution. Precision Plier Service recommends that you only consider orthodontic pliers from brand names.

Don’t be enticed by cheap imitations commonly offered online and throughout orthodontic meeting exhibit hall. Carefully look at the orthodontic pliers fit and finish, especially between the jaws and around the hinge and tips. The gaps should be tight and the finish should be smooth.

Test the orthodontic wire cutters, actually cut wire that the orthodontic instrument was designed to cut. For example, a distal end cutter from a quality orthodontic instrument manufacturer will cut clean and hold the wire firmly in place.

Poor quality orthodontic instruments on the other hand will do just the opposite. Never purchase an orthodontic plier without testing it first and don’t be afraid to test more than one plier on display. When you invest in quality orthodontic pliers you will realize many benefits including a longer useful life, improved control, efficiency, and patient comfort.

Procedure packs are also available for specific procedures which contain all necessary instruments. Examples of packs include dental and periodontal examination, restorative procedure packs, maxillofacial biopsy, minor oral surgery, and periodontal microsurgery.

This article examines the potential benefits of high quality, single-use Instruments in a busy general dental practice and to challenge current clinician perceptions of single-use instrumentation.

Quality of Dental Surgical Instruments

Single-use of Dental Surgical Instruments can be of extremely high quality and may be almost indistinguishable in use from re-usable instruments. Clinicians often comment that they are impressed by their quality and functionality, and that “they appear far too good to throw away after just one use”. These Dental Surgical Instruments instruments are a significant step forward from the poorer quality equipment which was previously available.

One of the most significant changes to have affected the dental profession in recent years has been the adoption of rigorous sterilization and cross-contamination procedures “Decontamination in Primary Care Dental Practices)

Dangers posed by ‘prion diseases’ such as variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD) remain even with the most effective dental sterilization processes.

Cost of Dental Surgical Instruments

Reprocessing dental instrument trays however inevitably leads to significant wear and tear and ultimately instrument damage.

This can also add substantial costs to the reprocessing of reusable instruments.

• Endodontics: Single-use rubber dam and root canal obturation packs provide optimal cost and clinical efficiencies. Clinicians can more effectively identify and control procedure costs and maximise their return on time-consuming and costly procedures.

Single-use instruments eliminate infection prevention concerns associated with the reprocessing of reusable instruments.

Ar-instrumed supplies all Dental instruments and Surgical instruments in a non-sterile condition. Each instrument is inspected, lubricated and individually packed. Before use professionals must wash the instruments using a neutral detergent/degreaser suitable for stainless steel. It is vital to wash and clean each instrument thoroughly before each use to avoid complications. Always use nylon bristle brushes (never use steel bristle brush) to brush off excess particles, dirt, debris etc. Always rinse instruments individually.

To avoid contamination instruments must be cleaned thoroughly using a recommended detergent with soft bristled brush. If using automated cleaning system always follow manufacturer’s inst

ructions for use. Professionals should never place Dental instruments and Surgical instruments made of dissimilar metals together in an automatic cleaning machine.

After cleaning instruments must always be disinfected using recommended methods. Professionals using instruments must always ensure that instruments are free from defects by inspecting instruments visually. Sterilization of the instruments can be carried out after drying, lubrication (always use surgically approved products) and packing in a recommended way. Dental instruments and surgical instruments with any signs of corrosion or defects must be discarded immediately.
