A Hollow Freer chisel is a dental instrument used for the removal of caries, decay and other deposits from teeth, and also used to shape tooth structure.
The main features of a Hollow Freer chisel are
- The hollow, cylindrical shape allows for the removal of caries and other deposits by suction
- Available in a variety of sizes to accommodate different tasks and tooth anatomy
- Typically used in restorative dentistry procedures
- Made of high-quality stainless steel for durability and sterilization
- The tip of the chisel is usually sharpened on one side to allow for easy access to all surfaces of the tooth
- The design of the handle allows for a comfortable grip, which reduces hand fatigue during prolonged use.
- The chisel is designed to be used with a light touch to avoid any damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
- The hollow design allows for the efficient removal of debris and decreases the amount of pressure required to remove the decay.
This instrument is commonly used in restorative procedures as well as endodontics.
