The beaks are anatomically shaped, tapered, notched and serrated to permit the forceps to maximize the tooth-to-forceps contact and to penetrate deeper into the tooth socket. The notched beaks provide an enhanced grip which assists extractions and over come the risk of fracturing the root structure or reduce the risk of causing trauma to the surrounding soft and hard tissues. These forceps have unique, light weight and ergonomic handle with smooth matte finish and circular openings which reduce the instrument’s weight. These forceps are made with high quality German stainless steel and provides long instrument life with minimal wear.
