Root Elevators and Root Tip Picks, often referred to as Heidbrink elevators, are dental instruments used in oral surgery and tooth extraction procedures.
These instruments are specifically designed for gently lifting and loosening teeth from their sockets and for the careful removal of fractured or deeply embedded root tips.
Root Tip Picks:
Root tip picks, also known as luxating or apical picks, are dental instruments with fine, pointed tips that are designed for the precise removal of fractured or stubborn root tips.
They are particularly useful when a tooth has broken during extraction, and the remaining root tip needs to be extracted without causing damage to adjacent structures.
The set includes three different instruments, each with a specific purpose—root elevators for tooth elevation and root tip picks for precise root tip removal.
This versatility allows dental professionals to tackle a wide range of extraction cases.
These instruments are typically made from high-quality stainless steel, ensuring durability, corrosion resistance, and longevity.
Variety of Shapes and Sizes:
The set may contain instruments of various shapes and sizes to accommodate different tooth and root configurations, enhancing flexibility during extractions.
The instruments have ergonomic handles that provide a comfortable and secure grip, enabling precise and controlled movements during procedures.
This design minimizes hand fatigue during longer extractions.
Easy-to-Clean: Constructed from stainless steel, the instruments are easy to clean and sterilize, maintaining aseptic conditions in the dental operatory.
Safety and Precision:
Root elevators are designed to minimize trauma during tooth elevation, and root tip picks are crafted for the precise removal of fractured or stubborn root tips.
These features ensure patient safety and comfort.
These instruments are compatible with standard dental setups and are widely used by oral surgeons, periodontists, and general dentists.
