  21. 21. Hatchet Function: An instrument to accentuate line and point angles of internal and external outlines, remove unsupported enamel Characteristics: Cutting edges at differing angles.
  22. 22. Plastic Instrument Function: To carry composite material for cavity preparation, and shape composite, not for any other use Characteristics: Specially coated instrument, not for amalgam or any other use.
  23. 23. Dental tweezers Dental tweezers, called "college tweezers," can be used for "placing small objects in the mouth and retrieving small objects from the mouth," according to "Basic Guide to Dental Instruments." College tweezers may "lock" to prevent dropping materials though they also come in nonlocking varieties. The working ends of college tweezers can be straight or curved, and serrated or smooth. non locking tweezer
  24. 24. Locking tweezers
  25. 25. Cotton Pliers They look like tweezers and function the same way. Cotton pliers are also very useful to pick up small items and remove small items from the mouth. They are also used to to avoid contamination.
  26. 26. Explorers These are delicate, pointed instruments used for tactile examination of tooth surfaces and restorations to identify any irregularities. A-Straight Explorer(Left) & Curved Explorer(Right). Straight explorer is bent at 90 degrees. It is used to examine the occusal/top surface of teeth for tooth decay. Curved explorer is also used to examine the occusal/top surface of teeth for tooth decay.
  27. 27. B-Interproximal Explorer This explorer has 2 or more angles in the shank and exploring tip is pointed towards the handle. It is useful in examining the proximal/ side surfaces of the teeth for detecting caries.
