Dental Instruments – Surgical Chisels
Surgical chisels are handheld instruments that are designed to cut through bone or other hard tissues during surgical procedures. They come in different shapes and sizes, and are typically made from high-quality surgical-grade stainless steel to ensure durability and resistance to corrosion.
Some of the commonly used surgical chisels include:
- Osteotomes: Osteotomes are surgical chisels that are designed to cut and shape bone. They come in various sizes and are used in different surgical procedures, such as orthopedic surgery, dental implantation, and craniotomy.
- Gouges: Gouges are chisel-like instruments with a concave cutting edge that is used to scoop out bone or other tissues. They come in different sizes and shapes, including straight, curved, and angled gouges.
- Mallets: Mallets are often used in conjunction with chisels to provide the necessary force needed to cut through bone. They come in different sizes and shapes and are made from materials like rubber, plastic, or metal.
- Periosteal Elevators: Periosteal elevators are a type of chisel that is used to separate the periosteum (a layer of connective tissue covering the bone) from the underlying bone. This instrument is commonly used in orthopedic and dental surgery.
Overall, surgical chisels are essential tools in many types of surgeries and require precision and skill to use effectively.
