what is an example of a tactile sensitivity instrument?
what is the most preferred type of shank to enhance the amount of tactile information transmitted to the clinicians fingers?
what is the area-specific instrument designed for?
removal of calc deposits from the crown and roots of teeth
an instrument with a thinner diameter has a more ______ shank to bend or flex, enhances _______ transmission to clinicians fingers, and locates _____ such as explorers.
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
area-specific curets are ____ _____ -semicircular, the working end has a ______ back and ___ and one working cutting edge per _____ end

lower (did someone say lower!?)
the cutting edges of the area-specific instrument is curved and has a rounded to to enhance adaptation to the _______ root surfaces and root _______
t/f area specific, each curet is limited to use on certain teeth and certain surfaces
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
