The fine point of the Sharpened Spade Proximator facilitates sulcular retraction and aids in positive engagement into the PDL space. The thin profile and sharpened edges incise the ligament quickly and expand the alveolus laterally.
In cases where there is a lack of coronal structure, or the root has fractured subgingivially, the tip of the Sharpened Spade Proximator can still be easily advanced along the side of the root.
The Sharpened Spade Proximator is well suited to create a purchase point for application of additional Proximators? or other instrumentation such as extraction forceps.
Application: Premolar to premolar in the upper or lower arch
