Chisels, Dental, Operative

Definition : Dental chisels designed to shape teeth during the restorative treatment of defects in tooth enamel and dentin (i.e., dental operative procedures). These chisels are typically a handheld, manual instrument with a very small flat blade including a cutting edge that is beveled on one side at the distal end and an integral handle. Dental operative chisels are used mainly to split tooth enamel, to smooth cavity walls, and to sharpen cavity preparations. Dedicated operative dental chisels are available for the anterior teeth (straight or monoangle chisels) and for difficult-to-access tooth structures (bi-angle or contra-angle chisels).
