Extraction Forceps 53L Left & 53R Right Set of 2
Forceps #53L and #53R are designed for extracting maxillary first and second molars. The “L” and “R” in their names indicate that they are used on the left and right sides of the maxillary arch, respectively. These forceps have straight handles with offset bayonet-type beaks.
- Offset Bayonet-Type Beaks: The beaks of the forceps have an offset or angled design that allows the dentist to reach and access the posterior teeth in the maxillary arch more easily.
- Rocking and Elevating Movements: The beaks are designed to securely grasp the tooth, allowing the dentist to apply rocking and elevating movements. These movements help to loosen and dislodge the tooth from its socket, facilitating a smoother extraction process.
- Maxillary Molars: The forceps are specifically designed for extracting maxillary first and second molars, which are large, multi-rooted teeth located in the upper jaw.
- Secure Grasp: The forceps’ design ensures a secure grasp on the tooth, reducing the risk of slippage and enhancing control during the extraction procedure.
