Books of hire-vendor In case of default by hire-purchaser, the hire-vendor debits the hire-purchaser’s account with interest becoming due but naturally does not pass entry for receipt of the instalment. When he ,repossess~s the goods due to default, he periscope, Goods Repossessed Account and, debits it ants , credits the hire-purchaser’s account with the estimated value of goods repossessed.

FRACTURES OF THE MANDIBLE

FRACTURES OF THE MANDIBLE Fracture of a mandible during extraction is a rare complication it is associated almost exclusivly with the surgical removal of impacted third moral a mandibular fracture is usually the result of the application of a force exceeding that needed the remove a tooth and often occurs duriong the use of dental elevators . however when lower third moral are deeply impacted even small amount of f

INSTRUMENTS TRAY SYSTEM

INSTRUMENTS TRAY SYSTEM Many surgeons find it practical to use the “tray” method to assemble instruments. Standard sets of instruments are packaged together, sterilized, and unwrapped at surgery. The typical basic extraction pack includes a local anesthesia syringe, a needle, a local anesthesia cartridge, a woodson elevator, a periapical curette,a small and large straight elevator, a pair of colleg

MANDIBULAR FORCEPS

MANDIBULAR FORCEPS Extraction of mandibular teeth requires forceps that can be used for single-rooted teeth for the lncisors, canines, and premolars, as wen as for two-rooted teeth for the molars.The forceps most commonly used for the single-rooted . teeth are the lower universal forceps, or the no A. Superior view of no. 150 forceps. 8, Side view of no. 150 forceps. C and 0, No. 150forceps adapted to maxillary

MAXILLARY FORCEPS

MAXILLARY FORCEPS The removal of maxillary teeth requires the use of instruments designed for single-rooted teeth and for teeth . with three roots. The maxillary incisors, canine teeth,and. premolar teeth are all considered to be single-rooted teeth. The maxillary first premolar frequently has a bifurcated root, but because this occurs in the apical one third, it has no influence on the design of the forceps.Th

COMPONENTS

COMPONENTS  The basic components of dental extraction forceps are the handle, hinge, and beaks (Fig, 6-42). The handles are usually of adequate size to be handled comfortably and deliver sufficientpressure and leverage to remove the required tooth. The handles have a serrated surface to allow a positive grip and prevent slippage. The handles of the forceps arc held differently, depending on the position of t

EXTRACTION FORCEPS

EXTRACTION FORCEPS The instruments that come to mind when thinking of the removal of a tooth are the· extraction forceps. These instruments are used for removing the tooth from the alveolar bone. They are designed in many styles and configurations to adapt to the variety of teeth for which they are used. Each basic design offers a multiplicity of variations to coincide with individual operator references.Thi

TYPES

TYPES The biggest variation in the type of elevator is in the shape and size of the blade. The three basic types of elevators are (1) the straight or gouge type; (2) the triangle,or pennant-shape type and (3) the pick type. The straight or gouge type elevator is the most commonly used elevator to luxate teeth (Fig. 6-37, A). The blade of the straight elevator has a concave surface on one side so that it can b

COMPONENTS

COMPONENTS  The three major components of the elevator are the handle,shank, and blade (Fig. 6-35). The handle of the elevator is usually of generous size, so it can be held comfortably in the hand to apply substantial but controlled force. The application of specifically applied force is critical in the proper use of dental. elevators. In some situations, crossbar or T-bar handles are used. These instruments

DENTAL ELEVATORS

DENTAL ELEVATORS  One of the most important instruments used in the extraction procedure is the dental elevator. These instruments are used to luxate teeth (loosen them) from the surrounding bone.Loosening teeth before the application of the dental forceps can frequently make a difficult extraction easier. By luxating the teeth before the application of the forceps, the clinician can minimize the incidence of
