Definition : Chisels designed to shape teeth, remove bone, and/or to split teeth during dental procedures. These chisels typically consist of a handheld, manual instrument including a flat blade with a cutting edge that is beveled on one side at the distal end and an integral handle. Small dental chisels are available to split tooth enamel, to smooth tooth-cavity walls, and to sharpen cavity preparations in operative dentistry; surgical chisels are also available to remove bone and/or split teeth in dental/oral surgery.
