Procedure Kit/Trays, Dental, Prophylaxis

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (i.e., either custom or standard kits) needed for dental prophylaxis (i.e., tooth cleaning). Items in these kits usually include a dental mirror, a periosteal probe, a dedicated curette (e.g., a McCall's curette), and a sickle scaler. The kits are frequently supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Dental prophylaxis procedure kits and trays are used in dental offices for routine dental cleanings; they may be used also to evaluate the oral cavity for any other problems that might be present.
