Golden-Misch launches revolutionary forceps
New in exodontia: the “One Minute Extraction Technique” makes it possible to perform difficult extractions, such as retained roots and endodontically treated teeth, without reflecting a flap, in less than a minute. The Physics Forceps uses the biomechanical advantage of a first-class lever to remove a tooth virtually atraumatically, with only one point of contact on the tooth. The beak engages the tooth on the lingual below the CEJ; the bumper is placed low on the alveolar ridge and the dentist simply rolls the tooth out of the socket. The Physics Forceps dramatically reduces the time and stress of extractions, for both the patient and dentist.
For more information, call (877) XTRACTION (987-2284) or visit GoldenMisch.com.
