Hand Instruments

Hand instruments (periodontal probe, explorer, mirror) facilitate oral examination to assess the health status of the oral cavity. Scalers and curettes help to remove plaque and calculus. Perosteal elevators (molt, freer) help by reflecting periosteum from the bone surface to expose the underlying bone.
