Transcript

  • 1. Sickle Scalers Clinical Application Guide
  • 2. Sickle Scalers
    • In this tutorial you will learn:
      • Types of sickle scalers
      • Sickle scaler blade designs
      • Sickle scaler instrumentation
      • Clinical uses of sickle scalers
  • 3. Sickle Scalers
    • Sickle scalers are designed for moderate to heavy deposit removal.
    • Specific sickle scalers are available for anterior or posterior applications.
    • They are mainly used to remove supragingival calculus or subgingival calculus, located just below the gingiva.
    • 2 Blade designs:
      • Straight
      • Curved
  • 4. Sickle Scalers – Straight Blade
    • Two cutting edges on a straight blade that end in a sharp point.
    • Also known as a Jacquette Scaler.
    ° Cutting edge Face Back Cutting edge Lateral surface
  • 5. Sickle Scalers – Straight Blade
    • Excellent for broad facial and lingual surfaces and can also be used interproximally.
    SJ30/339
  • 6. Sickle Scalers – Curved Blade
    • Two cutting edges on a curved blade that end in a sharp point.
    ° Cutting edge Face Back Cutting edge Lateral surface
  • 7. Sickle Scalers – Curved Blade
    • Excellent for the removal of interproximal deposits.
    SH6/79
  • 8. Sickle Scaler Instrumentation
    • To remove calculus, adapt the tip 1/3 of the cutting edge against the tooth, under the deposit. Tilt the facial surface of the blade toward the tooth to achieve an approximate 85 ° angle between the tooth and the blade.
    • Apply lateral pressure against the tooth and pull the scaler firmly upward to dislodge the deposit.
    Pull Stroke Lateral Pressure 85 °
  • 9. Sickle Scaler Instrumentation
    • Both sides (cutting edges) of the blade can be used for mesial or distal, facial or lingual application.
    • The instrumentation sequence is the same as for universal curettes, using anterior and posterior designs.
    • Anterior sickle scalers have a straight shank compared to the angled shank of posterior sickle scalers.
    Anterior - Straight shank Posterior - Angled shank
  • 10. Hu-Friedy Sickle Scalers
    • Hu-Friedy offers an array of sickle scalers.
    • Many designs are available with different handle options including EverEdge Technology.
