Gracey 17/18

Gracey 17/18

Gracey curettes are area specific instruments, designed for all types of calculus removal and root planing.  With a rounded toe and only one cutting edge, Graceys have a "safe-side" for carefree deep periodontal cleaning.

LM's optimally contoured blade tips follow curved tooth morphology. The result?  More thorough calculus removal with fewer strokes.

  • For distal surfaces of posterior teeth

Product Details

INSTRUMENTATION

Place the tip third or half of the cutting edge of a Gracey curette against the tooth surface. (The larger outer curve is always the cutting edge.) Make sure that the lower shank is parallel with the tooth surface. For calculus removal apply moderate and for root planing light lateral pressure and activate the curette by using vertical, diagonal or horizontal pull strokes.

DESIGN

  • Working surface inclined 20° to the lower shank
  • One curved cutting edge (red line)
  • Rounded cutting tip

Gracey 17/18:

  • For molars’ distal surfaces
  • Blade shank more sharply angulated than in Gracey 13/14 for better access
