  1. what is an example of a tactile sensitivity instrument?
  2. what is the most preferred type of shank to enhance the amount of tactile information transmitted to the clinicians fingers?
  3. what is the area-specific instrument designed for?
    removal of calc deposits from the crown and roots of teeth
  4. an instrument with a thinner diameter has a more ______ shank to bend or flex, enhances _______ transmission to clinicians fingers, and locates _____ such as explorers.
    • flexible
    • tactile
    • calc
  5. a ______ ______ instrument in diameter is larger and withstands pressure needed to remove heavy calc more effectively and quickly. less effort is needed. it limits tactile information to the clinicians fingers
    rigid shank
  6. area-specific curets are ____ _____ -semicircular, the working end has a ______ back and ___ and one working cutting edge per _____ end
    • cross section
    • rounded
    • toe
    • working
  7. the face of an area-specific curet is 70 degrees to the ____ shank. the working cutting edge is ____ than the nonworking edge. self angulated working cutting edge automatically is at the correct angulation when the ____ shank is _____ to the tooth surface being instrumented
    • lower
    • lower
    • lower (did someone say lower!?)
    • parallel
  8. the cutting edges of the area-specific instrument is curved and has a rounded to to enhance adaptation to the _______ root surfaces and root _______
    • rounded
    • concavitites
  9. t/f area specific, each curet is limited to use on certain teeth and certain surfaces
  10. debridement of the crown and root surfaces is the ______ function of an area specific instrument, and standard curets are to remove _____ calc deposits and ________. a rigid gracey can remove _______ sized deposits
    • primary
    • light
    • deplaque
    • medium
  11. a simple shank is also called:
    straight shank
  12. a complex shank is also called:
    an angled or curved shank
  13. a simple shank is bent in _____ plane (front to back)
  14. which shank design is mostly used on anterior teeth?
  15. a complex shank is bent in ______ planes (front to back, side to side) for ______ teeth
    • two planes
    • posterior teeth
  16. which shank type is able to reach around the crown and onto the root surface?
  17. a universal working angulation is adapted to what degrees?
    70-80 degree angulation
  18. an area specific face angulation is self angulated at ____ degrees. the face is tilted in relation to the lower _____.
    • 70
    • shank
