Instrument for supra and subgingival debridement
This type of curette is called UNIVERSAL because it can be used on all surfaces of anterior and posterior teeth.
Universal curette has the following design characteristics:
- The face of the working end is perpendicular to the terminal shank
- The working end of the instrument has rounded tip (toe) and rounded back
- The working end has two cutting edges
- Semi-circular cross-section
Universal curette can be used to remove small- to medium sized subgingival calculus deposits from shallow periodontal pockets (PPD≤5mm). It can be used for supragingival debridement as well.
