Periosteal Elevators

Next>>

Periosteal elevators are mainly used to lift full thickness soft tissue flaps. The tips require protection and need to be kept very sharp otherwise shredding of the flap can happen.

The most common types in use are the double ended Molt P9 but also the Molt 2 and Molt 4. Other types available are periosteotome, Fedi and Ochsenbein chisels.

Flaps make it easy to visualise the area of interest during multiple extractions, particularly cat teeth, and in the creation of sliding flaps and other flaps in periodontal and oral surgery.
