Most Commonly Used Dental Hand Instruments by Dentists
When a warm mouth meets a cold dental instrument, thermal shock occurs. However, because I do not know what the doctor did, I am a little anxious.
Today, we will discuss the most common types of dental instruments used in ದಂತವೈದ್ಯಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ.
These are the instruments and materials required to set up a dental clinic, as well as a clarification for everyone.
A small mirror for the mouth is an essential instrument for oral examination.
The oral cavity is a small area, and the doctor has a restricted field of vision. Using a mouth mirror, particularly one equipped with an LED light, it is possible to obtain an indirect field of vision, increase local illumination, and observe the surface of the tooth and the structure of the mouth that cannot be seen directly.
Occasionally, the doctor will also use the mouth mirror to pull the patient’s cheek or tongue, revealing the soft-tissue-covered surface of the teeth.
The probe is also utilised during oral examinations to determine the cavity’s depth and size, the condition of the ಮೂಲ ಕಾಲುವೆ, and the condition of the gums.
The shape of the probe’s working end will vary in accordance with its various functions. For instance, a periodontal probe resembles a miniature ruler with a blunt tip, measured in millimetres. It is primarily employed to detect and measure periodontal pockets and attachment levels, as well as to assess bleeding and pus during gum exploration.
Actually, the term “handpiece” refers to a rotating piece of medical equipment. It can be divided into high-speed mobile phones and low-speed dental handpieces based on speed and structure.
It is typically utilised with dental burs. Before placing a filling, the ದಂತವೈದ್ಯ will use a high-speed rotating needle to remove the decayed portion of the tooth.
Everyone is aware of the “principle of leverage.” As one of the tools for tooth extraction, the tooth elevator employs this principle to loosen the tooth prior to extraction in order to facilitate tooth extraction.
In accordance with the principles of applied mechanics and actual requirements, dental elevators can be straight, curved, apical, Barco, or triangular in shape.
Orthodontic cutting pliers
Our orthodontics department has a row of various pliers, which can be considered the orthodontists’ treasure.
Some of them are used to bend and cut the arch wires during ಆರ್ಥೊಡಾಂಟಿಕ್ ಚಿಕಿತ್ಸೆ, while others are used to remove braces, band rings, and other ಆರ್ಥೊಡಾಂಟಿಕ್ devices. Each of these tools is indispensable.
LED dental light curing light
It determines the aesthetics of dental equipment. The human eye absorbs blue light, which causes the light-curable resin to polymerize and cure rapidly and effectively in a short period of time. It is utilised frequently for ಹಲ್ಲಿನ ಭರ್ತಿ ಮತ್ತು ಆರ್ಥೊಡಾಂಟಿಕ್ bonding.
There is also specialised equipment in the dental clinic that you may not use, but which you can also comprehend.
The digital intraoral scanner can rapidly and precisely acquire three-dimensional topography and colour texture data of the soft and hard tissues of the patient’s teeth, gums, and mucosa, and generate model data.
Traditional oral impressions require a lengthy period of time to open the mouth, and the material can irritate patients with a sensitive throat. The digital mouth scan is quick, the procedure is painless, and the data and model’s precision can be enhanced, allowing for the restoration to be made more complex and the CAD/CAM to be quickly repaired.
