Knives, Dental, Periodontic, Gingivectomy

Definition : Periodontal knives designed for surgical excision of the gingiva (i.e., gum) at the level of its attachment (i.e., gingivectomy). These knives typically consist of handheld, manual instruments with a handle and an angled shaft with a sharp pointed integral cutting blade at the distal end; some gingivectomy knives have a long narrow triangular blade. Gingivectomy knives are used mainly in dental procedures intended to eliminate periodontal or gingival problems; they can also be used for other surgeries of the gums.
