Oral & Maxillo-Facial Instruments
Oral and Maxillofacial Instruments
Oral and maxillofacial surgery deals with a variety of conditions associated with the mouth, jaws, face and neck. Severe traumas and deformities do not only pose a risk to the function of the senses, but they often also entail psychosocial consequences. This specialty encompasses the management of developmental facial anomalies including cleft lip and palate, facial trauma and surgery required in the management of oral and facial malignancy.
Surtex Instruments manufacture a range of instruments that are needed to provide surgical exposure during oral procedures, such as a wide range of mouth gags and bipods for procedures such as tonsillectomies and surgeries of the tongue, palate and nasopharynx. Our range also includes mouth props to prevent involuntary closure of the patient’s mouth in oral and dental procedures. A broad range of curved lip and cheek retractors can allow an assistant to open the surgical field in simple dental or maxillo-facial operations without the assistant’s hand obscuring the view of the operator. We manufacture tongue depressors suitable for all your outpatient and operative oropharyngeal examinations, and tongue forceps designed to hold the tongue firmly without injuring it in lingual surgeries.
Our diverse assortment of maxillofacial retractors were designed to facilitate and provide the best surgical exposure in maxillofacial procedures, and we also design and manufacture an extensive collection of maxillofacial elevators to strip the periosteumin craniomaxillofacial surgeries and maxillofacial separators to facilitate splitting craniofacial bones. Surtex Instruments manufactures sinus lift curettes for the elevation of the Schneiderian membrane in maxillary sinus lift operations, a variety of awls for wire suturing and wire loop forceps for twisting wire loop clips in mandibular fractures. Wealso manufacture paired disimpaction forceps for the management of facial fractures. Other accessories we provide for your comfort and the comfort of your patients include napkin holders that are designed to attach disposable napkins on the patient's clothing during outpatient procedures. We also manufacture several diameters of finger protectors that are used to protect the fingers of surgical personnel from inadvertent surgical needle stick or cut injuries.
