Dental Retraction with Minnesota Retractors

Oral retractors, especially tongue & cheek retractors, are crucial for dental operations & check-ups. They grant the dentist unobstructed access to the treatment area for improved safety & efficiency resulting in optimal patient outcomes.

The Minnesota retractor is specially crafted for dentists, ear-nose-throat doctors, & maxillofacial surgeons. Discover its features and advantages, and order now from Dental Implant Technologies.

What Makes the Minnesota Retractor Design Unique?

The Minnesota retractor is distinctive in its ability to retract various oral tissues like lips, tongue, cheek, & soft tissue in the oral cavity. This allows clear vision during exams & procedures while protecting soft tissue. It can be operated by the surgeon or an assistant, based on procedure needs.

The single-handed design makes the Minnesota retractor efficient when performing chairside procedures. Made from surgical stainless steel, there’s a low risk of irritation and the instrument can be processed between surgeries following existing in-office protocols like ultrasonic cleaning and autoclave sterilization.

There are two unique ends on the Minnesota cheek retractor design.

  • The angled end is used for cheek retraction. The lips and cheeks can be held away from the surgical field or treatment site for dental check-ups, quick procedures, review of a restoration, or in any other scenario where efficient and comfortable retraction is necessary.
  • The Minnesota retractor is also an excellent tongue retractor. The bayonet end can be used to depress the tongue and keep it away from the intended treatment area, or when inspecting restorations or performing an oral evaluation.

The double-ended design keeps this cheek retractor versatile, making it one of the most essential tools used in the modern dental office.

This matte surgical retractor allows for optimal engagement with tissue with a minimized risk of slippage when compared to highly-polished stainless steel instruments.

Ideal Applications for a Minnesota Cheek Retractor

The Minnesota cheek retractor design is suited to a range of dental procedures. It’s an essential tool for general dentists, orthodontists, dental surgeons, and other medical professionals that routinely perform procedures in the oral cavity.

Choose the Minnesota retractor for cheek retraction when…

  • Performing oral examinations.
  • Placing dental fillings.
  • Placing dental implants, abutments, and crowns.
  • Maintaining implants and other restorations.
  • Performing soft tissue or bone grafting.
  • Performing surgical tooth extraction.

The versatility of the Minnesota cheek retractor design means it can be used entirely at the discretion of the clinician. It’s efficient because it can offer both cheek and tongue retraction in a single instrument. This can reduce complexity when performing dental procedures. Whether operated by the clinician or an assistant, it offers excellent visibility and safe retraction without causing discomfort or trauma to the soft tissues of the cheeks and lips.

Stainless Steel Cheek Retractors are Durable

Disposable cheek retractors see widespread use in the dental industry, but they’re not the best option for busy clinicians. Disposable plastic retractors are discarded after each procedure, creating excessive waste and costs that can add up over the years. Stainless steel cheek retractors like our matte Minnesota retractor can be sterilized between treatments and will last for years, offering a reliable and economical solution.

Purchase a Minnesota retractor and enjoy a five-year warranty for peace of mind.
