-Dr. Tony Craft, DDS
- Distinct design allows for quick definition of the purchase point
- Intense gripping surface provides minimal rotation
- Ergonomically designed for proper directional force
- Full-control during apical progression of the sharp working-edge
- Preserves the socket while gently removing the tooth
- Tapered, one-piece design drives tip apically
- Allows for palm pressure to advance the instrument further
The thin profile and sharpened edges incise the ligament quickly and expand the alveolus laterally.
In cases where there is a lack of coronal structure, or the root has fractured subgingivally, the tip of the Distal Sharpened Spade Proximator can still be easily advanced along the side of the root.
The Distal Sharpened Spade Proximator is well suited to create a purchase point for application of additional Proximators or other instrumentation such as extraction forceps.
