Osteotomes are dental instruments used in oral and maxillofacial surgery. They are specifically designed to cut bone and are commonly used in dental implant placement and sinus lift procedures.
Here are some of the key features of osteotomes
- Blade design Osteotomes typically have a straight or curved blade that is designed for cutting bone. Some osteotomes have serrated edges to enhance their cutting ability.
- Handle design The handle of an osteotome is designed for a comfortable grip, with some models featuring a ribbed or textured surface for improved grip. The handle may also be angled to allow for better access to the surgical site.
- Size Osteotomes come in various sizes, with larger models being used for larger bones and smaller models being used for more delicate procedures.
- Material Osteotomes are typically made of stainless steel or a similar material that is durable and easy to sterilize.
- Sterilization Osteotomes are reusable instruments that must be sterilized between uses. They are typically sterilized using autoclaving, which is a process that uses high-pressure steam to kill bacteria and other pathogens.
Packaging Osteotomes may come individually packaged or as part of a set, along with other instruments used in a particular procedure.
