Bone preservation in tooth extraction

Physics forceps, a conservative way to extract teeth.

In this presentation I will describe my personal clinical experience of the benefit of using Physics forceps, a new twist on an original 13th century idea.

Physics forceps can enable teeth to be extracted in a way to make the procedure more comfortable for both the operator and the patient.

They have a "beak and bumper" design that enables dentists to extract the teeth using a gentle wrist action only. This can benefit your back and shoulders as it reduces stress and strain to both the patient and the dentist.

The forceps help preserve the buccal plate of bone and can often eliminate the need for flaps to be raised.

I have found the forceps facilitate the extractions of many teeth and achieve a low trauma extraction in a few minutes.

Post operative healing seems to be uneventful and most patients report the use of this instrument to be preferable to conventional forceps technique.
