Rigid Gracey 15/16
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.
- Working surface inclined 20° to the lower shank
- One curved cutting edge (red line)
- Rounded cutting tip
Rigid Gracey 15/16:
Blade shank thicker and more rigid, and working end slightly wider than in the standard model. Permits the use of greater pressure.
- For molars’ mesial surfaces
- Blade shank more sharply angulated than in Gracey 11/12 for better access
