Physics and dentistry have intimate relationship, since dental instruments are based on physical principles.
Forceps are sort of these instruments that based on leverage action, but in this article, we will not discuss the conventional forceps or traditional extraction techniques.
Physics forceps will be the core of today’s discussion, so our content will include:
What is physical forceps? What its privilege over traditional forceps ? How it works?
Enjoy, and DON’T forget to watch the video below.
What is physics forceps?
Physics forceps are the most innovative oral surgery instruments in recent years, completely changing the physics behind dental extractions; hence it is named as physics forceps. They were developed by Dr. Richard Golden in 2004 and have been modified with the help of several doctors.
What its privilege over traditional forceps?
The main advantage of physics forceps over conventional forceps is related to their unique design that can deliver a powerful mechanical advantage by employing an efficient first-class lever.
The biomechanical design of physics forceps decreases the incidence of root fracture, and maintains the buccal bone plate, which is essential for the proper healing of an immediately placed dental implant.
So, it provides us with atraumatic dental extraction that preserves bone, gingival architecture, and allows for the option of future or immediate dental implant placement.
How it works?
As it is shown in the picture on the top, it has a flat blunted end which will engage the palatal surface of the tooth, and a bumper pan on the other end which will engage deep into the vestibule on the facial surface.
After placing the forceps in place, you just rotate your rest to have the tooth popped and removed.
Finally, the most surprising thing about these forceps is its cost. I think it is very expensive, I will not tell you the price, YOU should google it yourself. 😀
