Please log in to order

The pod miniature gracey curette has been made with a single cutting face at a 70 degree angle with a smooth curved back. The miniature blade size is ideal for subgingival curettage in cats & small dogs.

Originally designed as a finishing curette, the pod gracey curette has an off set cutting blade positioned at a 70 degree angle. There is one cutting edge, a lower edge and a rolled back edge to protect soft tissue. The blade of a Gracey curette is correctly positioned when the lower cutting edge is against the tooth, and the shank is parallel to the tooth surface being scaled. Apply lateral pressure against the tooth root and pull upwards, maintaining the parallel position of the shank to the tooth surface. This will remove debris and endotoxins from the surface of the root. In some cases it may be necessary to make a mucoperiosteal flap to view the tooth structure as you remove debris and endotoxins from the patient.
