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.

Orthodontic instruments used for the removal of orthodontic bands on posterior teeth.

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

Orthodontists use this device to apply your normal bands and to seat molar bands.The orthodontist puts the band in place and has the patient bite down on the stick to help push the band in place.

Posterior Band Removers

A specialized pliers orthodontists use to remove bands from your teeth.

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.

value of single use dental Surgical Instruments

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.
