THE EXPERT ADVICE
"One of the major benefits of using hand instruments when treating patients with perio pathology is the fact, that these instruments are easily adapted to any surface of the root, do not overheat the surface of a tooth during SRP and of course they do not create aerosol during your work. The last feature is exceptionally important during COVID-19 pandemic. Instruments are continuously upgrading which is a result of a tight coordination between HF and practitioners. One of my favorites are BioGent Curettes.
This is a modification of Gracey curettes which were developed by Drs. Antonella Labriola and Dr. Pierpaolo Cortellini. These instruments provide a smooth and careful workflow in patients with a thin periodontal biotype which prevents the risk of gingival recession. The working part of BioGent curette is thinner and shorter than a regular one’s, what provides working in a deeper pocket with an increased safety. Modified curves of the terminal part of curette let the instrument adapt to the root surface even better, even when the anatomy is very complex. Instruments are made with EverEdge 2.0 technology which makes them the most advanced scalers ever!
This makes my work very productive and comfortable for patients."
