Efficient stainless steel broaches for pulp tissue and dressing removal
Waldent Barbed Broaches are dental instruments specifically designed for the efficient removal of pulp tissue from wide root canals and cotton wool dressings from the pulp chamber during endodontic procedures. These broaches are available in various sizes, ranging from #00 to #06, allowing for precise selection according to the specific needs of the case. Constructed using high-quality stainless steel, Waldent Barbed Broaches offer excellent durability and resistance to corrosion, ensuring long-term reliability in clinical use. The barbs, which are the distinguishing feature of these broaches, are created by cutting into the metal and distending the cut portion away from the shaft. This unique design facilitates the engagement of soft tissue or dressings within the canal, aiding in their efficient removal.
To maintain structural integrity, the cuts forming the barbs are made eccentrically around the shaft. This strategic placement ensures that the instrument is not excessively weakened at any single point, reducing the risk of fracture during usage. The use of soft steel wire in the manufacturing process further enhances the flexibility of the broaches, allowing for gentle manipulation within the root canal while minimizing the possibility of iatrogenic damage.
