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.
