Sickle Scalers

Product Information

Sickle scalers are designed for the removal of supragingival calculus.

Design

  • Triangular cross section
  • Face perpendicular to the lower shank
  • Two cutting edges (red line)
  • Pointed tip

For calculus removal place the tip third of the scaler’s cutting edge against the tooth. Tilt the instrument toward the tooth to achieve 70° to 80° angle between the tooth and the blade. Apply lateral pressure and activate the scaler by using vertical, diagonal or horizontal pull strokes. To maintain control use short 2-3 mm long strokes.
