Types of Hand Instrument Strokes

Assessment: Exploratory or walking
Calculus Removal: Short Biting strokes
Root Debridement: Shaving

2

Each type of stroke has specific characteristics.

Purpose

3

Explorer
-Adaptation

Adaptation: 1/3rd side tip
Leading Section of the working end: SIDE of tip 1/3rd remains in contact with the tooth surface at all times

4

Tip 1/3 of explorer being used is _-_ mm

1-2mm

5

Midline is where we start on anterior tooth its like opening a door/use thumb and index to __ and ___

roll and pivot

6

Hand moves as a unit to move instrument and aid in adaptation.
Must stand up on fulcrum to be able to pivot

Fulcrum Pivot

7

Hand moves as a unit to move instrument and aid in adaptation. Must ___ __ __ ____to be able to pivot

stand up on fulcrum

8

Handle Roll:
1. Aids in keeping __ adapted to tooth surface ****
2. Must keep space between __ and ___ finger to roll handle

1.TIP***
2. Thumb and Index

9

Do we want Motion Activiation/Wrist Motion or Digital Motion when Exploring

WRIST MOTION is good !

10

When do we use Vertical Strokes with Exploring

Mesial and Distal Surfaces-Interproximal

11

When do we use Oblique Strokes Exploring

Facial and lingual Surfaces

12

When do we use Horizontal Strokes

Calculus Deposits located on
-Line Angles
-Facial or lingual root surfaces of anteriors
-At CEJ of posterior teeth
-Furcations
-Narrow Pockets

13

once we are subgingival we don’t come out
Until __ __ __ . Make sure to come up
Into contact area

Done with stroke

14

Steps for Subgingival Exploration
1. Light modified Pen grasp
2. Subgingival Placement of tip-Insert
-DO NOT REMOVE FROM ___
-Overlapping strokes 2-3mm
3. Explore Half way through the interporximal space and until you touch the bottom of the interproximal contact with the working end

Sulcus
