For atraumatic extractions, OTA periotomes compare favorably to competitive units costing almost twice as much. They feature strong, one-piece construction and the apical end is fl at so it can be used for tapping. You can use a mallet with minimal vibration.
OTA periotomes come in four different blade confi gurations—thick, thin and two angled—and are color-coded for easy identification. Gold and blue periotomes are indicated for buccal and lingual/palatal sides of the tooth. Gray and green periotomes are for the mesial and distal sides of the tooth.
Periotomes are provided non-sterile and must be sterilized prior to clinical use.
