Hand Instruments

Hand instruments (periodontal probe, explorer, mirror) facilitate oral examination to assess the health status of the oral cavity. Scalers and curettes help to remove plaque and calculus. Perosteal elevators (molt, freer) help by reflecting periosteum from the bone surface to expose the underlying bone.

Sterility Pouches

All instruments used in the mouth should be sterile. This precaution is essential to help prevent extension of disease from one area of the mouth to another and from one animal to another.
