Retractors and props are another type of dental equipment that is used on a regular basis. Retractors are used to prop the patient's mouth open, making it easy to operate inside the mouth. A mouth prop, also known as a bite block, is one type of retractor that helps patients keep their mouth open and still during a procedure. Mouth props are also used when the patient is sedated. Other retractors include tongue, cheek, and lip retractors, used for specific parts of the mouth.

Dental Probe

Periodontal probes are dental instruments used to measure pocket depth between the teeth and the gums. Pocket depth is the amount of space between the gum and the tooth, which is an indicator of gum disease. It is a similar instrument to a sickle probe, but a periodontal probe is blunted at the end of the stick as opposed to curved. Because of the importance of finding and treating gum disease, periodontal probes are one of the most used examining tools in a dental office.
