Orthodontic Pliers description and usage

Orthodontic Pliers

Most orthodontists and general dentists who perform orthodontic work keep several pairs of orthodontic pliers on hand. These pliers can be used for a variety of specific tasks, including archwire work like loop forming and contouring, as well as torqueing and placing stops in the archwire. They’re designed to fit in the mouth for easy orthodontic appliance adjustment, and give clinicians more control during placement and removal.

What Types of Orthodontic Pliers Are Available for My Practice?

Band Removing Orthodontic Pliers

As the name implies, band removing orthodontic pliers help remove bands, brackets and adhesives. Construction material should be high-grade stainless steel or steel with a chromium and carbon blend. The tip or beak of the band removing orthodontic pliers may be serrated or specially formatted for precision gripping. There may be a replaceable plastic pad on the end of the tip for proper occlusal counterforce. These pliers may be better suited for anterior bands or posterior bands, or may work for both anterior and posterior bands. They should be corrosion resistant and autoclavable. The grip should be comfortable and long enough for proper accessibility. Be sure to choose a reputable vendor who uses high quality construction materials.
