Clamps, Dental, Gingiva

Definition : Dental clamps designed for retracting gingival tissue during operative procedures. These clamps are typically steel, handheld, manual instruments with an unbalanced spring; they provide a good working field without interference for operative procedures, reducing blood and/or tissue contamination while inserting restorative materials into a prepared tooth cavity after removal of dental caries. Gingiva dental clamps are used in procedures in which access is difficult and/or operative procedures prolonged; they were originally intended for gold foil insertion in restorative dentistry, a procedure no longer frequently performed in dental practice.
