3

What are the cutting edges like on an area specific curet?

curved, not parallel

4

What are the characteristics of the face of an area specific curet?

Face is tilted in relation to the lower shank and one cutting edge is lower than the other on each working end, considered self angulated

5

What degree is the toe from the shank?

70 degrees

6

Which edge of the area specific curet is used for calculus removal?

the lower cutting edge

7

What is the "cutting edge" that is not used called on an area specific curet?

nonworking cutting edge

8

Which cutting edge is used on an area specific curet?

lower cutting edge/working cutting edge

away from the soft tissue wall of the pocket

11

In order to identify the lower cutting edge, how should the instrument be positioned?

Hold the instrument so that you are looking directly at the toe, raise or lower the instrument handle until the lower shank is perpendicular to the floor. Look closely at the working end, one end is lower/closer to the floor.

17

Where is the shank of the area specific curet when looking for the working end?

perpendicular to the floor

18

What great design feature helps protect the tissue when using an area specific curet?

The nonworking cutting edge is angled away from the soft tissue wall of the pocket.

19
