Dental Instruments – Bone Rongeurs
Dental bone rongeurs are specialized dental instruments used to trim and remove small pieces of bone during oral surgery procedures. These instruments are designed with sharp, curved jaws that provide a precise cutting edge to remove bone fragments.
Dental bone rongeurs come in various sizes and shapes, with straight or curved handles and various jaw designs to accommodate different types of bone and surgical procedures. They are typically made of high-quality stainless steel or other durable materials, and may have a textured grip for ease of use.
To use dental bone rongeurs, the dental professional carefully positions the instrument on the bone and applies pressure to the handles to engage the sharp jaws. They then carefully manipulate the rongeurs to trim or remove the bone as needed, being careful not to damage surrounding tissues.
Proper cleaning and sterilization of dental bone rongeurs are important to prevent contamination and ensure patient safety. Dental professionals should follow proper infection control protocols and replace instruments that become worn or damaged.
