Dental Instruments – Scalpel Handles
Dental scalpel handles are used in dental surgery to hold and control the cutting blade during the procedure. The handle is designed to fit a specific size and type of blade, which can be easily attached and removed as needed.
Dental scalpel handles are typically made of stainless steel or other high-quality materials that can withstand repeated use and sterilization. They have a textured grip to prevent slippage during use and may have a locking mechanism to secure the blade in place.
Dental scalpel handles come in different sizes and shapes to suit different surgical procedures and personal preferences. Some handles have a straight design, while others have a curved or angled shape for improved visibility and access in tight spaces.
To use a dental scalpel handle, the dental professional selects the appropriate blade and attaches it securely to the handle. They then use the handle to control the blade during the surgical procedure, making precise incisions and cuts as needed.
Proper cleaning and sterilization of dental scalpel handles are important to prevent contamination and ensure patient safety. Dental professionals should follow proper infection control protocols and replace handles that become worn or damaged.
