In order to enter the periodontal ligament space and function without cutting innocent tissue, traditional periotome instruments must be thin but not sharp. Due to this limited sharpness, an excessive amount of pressure must often be applied to tear the elastic ligaments, frequently causing iotrogenic damage, destructive bending of thin instrument blades and hand fatigue.
Laschal Micro-serrated Periotomes operate more efficiently and ergonomically with a vertical sawing motion that cuts PDLs better with less applied force.
- Micro-serrated stainless steel blades engage ligament fibers individually to cut with greater efficiency.
- Easier up/down movement results in greater control than the push/pull.
- Lightweight, 3/8"D hollow handles reduce fatigue and improve tactile feel.
7" long. Fully sterilizable stainless steel with the Laschal lifetime no-rust guarantee.
