Sharp Spoon
Amongst operating instruments especially dental instruments, a sharp scoop is called a bone curette. This sharp scoop or bone curette is used to scoop out connective and granulation tissue from the bone after a tooth extraction. These surgical instruments are used to extract the inflamed tissue left inside the jaw bone once the inflicted tooth has been extracted. This inflamed tissue, if left unattended prevents the bone from healing completely. The resultant bone cavity interspersed with inflamed tissue provides a shaky base for dental implants and also impairs the successful placement of dental implants in future. Like all surgical instruments or dental instruments, the bone curette should be used only after complete sterilization. Sterilization refers to the clinical cleaning of all operating instruments to get rid of all kinds of micro-organisms. Since unlike hospitals, there is no regulatory code for hygiene levels in most of the private dental clinics. It is imperative to check out the hygiene conditions and sterilization procedures in these clinics before opting for them, to get any kind of dental surgery done. Lack of proper hygiene conditions or improper sterilization can lead to inflammation of the gum and teeth, persistent wound infections and bone infections. Watch the video to know more about the use of sharp scoops, also known as bone curettes. Here you can see LIVE OPERATION Alveola cleaning after tooth extraction with the sharp spoon.
