Dental hand instruments in dental clinics in Dubai
Dental hand instruments can be classified based on their main functions:
• inspecting the mouth and teeth;
• professional cleaning of teeth;
• cutting teeth and eliminating cavities;
• inserting and reducing filling materials;
• carving and finishing dental fillings;
• assorted types.
Mouth mirrors are used to inspect the condition of the teeth and mouth, as well as to pull back the tongue and cheeks upon examination. The Briault probe is a sharp tool, used to spot the link between the coating and the dentine and also to detect the hidden tartar in the gum pockets. A periodontal probe can be used to measure the distance of the gum pockets. The straight probe can be used to check cavities or to verify the margins of restorations and fillings.
Instruments for cutting and scraping materials and deposits
Excavators are used to remove softened dentine and temporary fillings. Scalers eliminate the tartar from the tooth and can also remove other surface deposits. Chisels, hatchets and hoes are used to get rid of not useful enamel during cavity preparation.
Tools used for placing filling material
Plastic instruments are typically flat stainless steel blades that can deliver and shape fillings materials. Condensers are used for contracting and creating filling materials on heavy pressure.
Most of the hand-held tools are made of stainless steel or occasionally carbon steel. Chisels and scalers frequently have tungsten carbide tips. The elementary design of a hand tool has a blade, a shank and a handle. Rotary tools are small instruments that contain burs, stones, and discs, held in a hand piece. Rotation is made by an electric motor or flattened air and is usually in two speeds. The air turbine is a high-speed hand piece that often has a built-in water spray and a fiber optic light. High speeds between 250,000 to 500,000 rpm (revolution per minute) with low twisting are seen in these tools. The contra-angle hand piece is practically always used in the mouth and the straight hand piece is used in trimming techniques outside the mouth. Burs and stones are engaged in the hand piece in one of three ways: brushing, latch grip or quick-release clamping chuck. Bur blades are frequently made of steel, tungsten carbide or abrasive materials according to their practice.
Dental instruments used for root canal treatments
A root canal treatment is necessary to eliminate the decay which affected the nerves of a tooth. There are several dental instruments our Dubai dentist use in a root canal treatment and here we remind the following:
• a mouth mirror to detect the problem of the affected tooth;
• endolocking tweezers;
• an endodontic probe to identify the canal openings;
• an excavator to access the pulp chamber;
• a pocket-measuring probe;
• a furcation probe;
• artery forceps;
These are the main dental instruments a doctor will use during an endodontic treatment and we remind that the entire procedure will be made under local anesthesia.
Dental instruments used for professional dental cleanings
The professional dental cleanings are necessary to maintain your teeth healthy and to stay away from gum tissue problems. The tartar and the dental plaque (calculus) can be eliminated during a professional dental cleaning with the help of special instruments like:
• a mouth mirror to investigate the entire denture;
• a tooth scraper to break the big pieces of calculus;
• ultrasonic instruments to knock out larger pieces of calculus;
• scalers and curettes to eliminate smaller deposits of tartar;
• polishing tools to smooth the area.
It is good to know that the ultrasonic instruments are based of tickling vibrations and are used at the same time with water at the room temperature.
