Dental Periotomes

Dental periotomes sever periodontal ligamentsduring atraumatical tooth extraction. These instruments may also be used during routine extractions, though they are particularly important when extraction is followed by placement of dental implants.

Surtex dental periotomes are clinically designed with a sharp, thin blade to cause minimal damage to the alveolar bone during tooth extraction. The tools have handles with a large diameter to upgrade ergonomics, enhance tactile sensation, and optimise clinical outcomes.We manufacture both single-ended and double-ended periotomes for both anterior and posterior teeth.

Dental periotomes facilitate cutting of the periodontal ligament by keeping the blade at approximately 20 degrees from the root surface. This angulation prevents blade slippage, and ensures that the tip of the periotome is positioned accurately within the alveolar bone crest. The periodontal ligament is severed by pushing the periotome blade several millimeters into the periodontal ligament space, followed by a circumferential movement of the blade.
