When performing orthodontic work, dentists must have access to a variety of instruments. These instruments, which include interproximal saws, interproximal stripping systems, band seaters, bur kits as well as cutters and pliers, help ensure practitioners provide patients with exceptional, precise orthodontic care. Orthodontic instruments are available in various configurations and options. Some are designed for general use, while others are designed for certain tasks. Orthodontic cutters, for example, can be customized for specific procedures and combined with orthodontic pliers. Orthodontic pliers are often used for archwire work, including loop forming and archwire contouring as well as torquing and placing stops in archwire.
