Used for dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia or exodontics): the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone.
Designed for use in specific areas of the mouth. Beaks and Handles are shaped to conform snugly to the contour of the teeth and to easily reach different teeth effectively.
The operator must find the forceps comfortable to grip and the blades should fit closely around the tooth with the beaks engaging the radicular bifurcations. When using forceps to extract a tooth, two movements are involved. The first severs the gingival and periodontal ligament attachment to the tooth. The blades should be positioned beneath the gingival margin on the buccal and lingual aspects of the tooth and then driven with increasing force in an apical direction. Thus they slide along the length of the root surface to their final position rather than gripping it from the outset. The placement of the forceps in the most apical position possible ensures that the mechanical efficiency of subsequent movements to extract the tooth is maximal and the risk of root fracture is minimized. The second movement of forceps extraction removes the tooth from the alveolus. Whilst the apical position achieved in the first movement is maintained, the tooth should then be gripped firmly by the blades of the forceps and the tooth luxated in its bony socket. This allows the socket to dilate and the tooth to be lifted out. The movements involved should be slow and deliberate, allowing time for the alveolus to expand; their direction will be determined by the anatomy and position of the tooth being removed.
