Consultants’ Comments

  • “The spring loaded handles are brilliant. Very comfortable and a good fit in the hand.”
  • “These forceps make extractions easier. They were ready when they were handed to me.”
  • “I liked the ease of holding them without having to use two of my finger to open the forceps.”
  • “I really liked the serrated tips and the hinges. The beaks gripped teeth well.”
  • “The blue color is distinct, and it also helps to make blood less visible.”
  • “You don’t need to use a lot of pressure or force with these forceps.”
  • “These forceps work nicely on deciduous teeth and are less bulky than my regular forceps.”

Clinical Tips

  • Beaks on the lower molar forceps are very useful for gripping teeth fractured off at the roots.
  • If you do lots of extractions, use these forceps as often as possible to reduce hand fatigue.
  • Make sure the tips of the beaks are fully under the gum.
