  2. Kirkland Knife: This is a double-edged knife used for making incisions in the gingival tissue during crown lengthening procedures.
  3. #15 Blade: This is a small, curved blade used for making precise incisions during surgery.
  4. #12 Blade: This is a larger version of the #15 blade and is commonly used for making longer incisions.
  5. Sickle Scaler: This is a curved blade used for removing calculus and plaque from the teeth.
  6. Gingivectomy Knife: This is a knife used for removing excess gum tissue during a gingivectomy procedure.
  7. Periosteal Elevator: This is a knife used for separating the periosteum from the bone during surgery.
  8. Molt Curette: This is a spoon-shaped instrument used for removing debris and diseased tissue from the teeth and gums.
