Dental Instruments – Bone Collector & Chisels
Bone collector and chisels are dental instruments that are commonly used during dental surgery. They are designed to remove bone tissue and help prepare the tooth socket for the placement of dental implants or the extraction of teeth.
A bone collector is a small, handheld device that is used to collect bone chips and debris during surgery. It typically has a curved, spoon-shaped tip that is used to scoop up the bone tissue. The bone collector can be used to collect bone tissue from the tooth socket or from other areas of the jaw.
Bone chisels, on the other hand, are used to cut and shape bone tissue. They are available in various shapes and sizes to suit different surgical needs. The cutting edge of the chisel is sharp and can be used to remove small amounts of bone tissue at a time. The chisel is typically held with a surgical mallet and used to carefully sculpt and shape the bone tissue as needed. Bone chisels are commonly used in procedures such as dental implant placement and sinus lifts.
