Physics® Forceps - Standard Series

The Physics Forceps Standard Series extraction instruments can be utilized on all teeth in the mouth with the exception of third molars. In some instances, due to patient access and the design of the instruments, the Standard Series may not access "hard-to-reach" second molars. In these cases, the Molar Series should be utilized.

What is it?
The Physics Forceps are an atraumatic extraction system that provides a simple, predictable and unconventional method of extracting teeth regardless of a practitioner’s extraction experience, or the condition of the tooth, while providing a positive patient experience.

How does it work?
The Physics Forceps operate as an elevator, rather than forceps, using first-class lever mechanics. One handle is connected to a ”bumper,” which acts as the fulcrum, that is placed deep in the vestibule. The other handle is connected to the ”beak”, which is positioned most often on the lingual or palatal root of the tooth into the gingival sulcus. No aspect of the instrument grasps the crown and there is no advanced elevation needed. Once the instrument is properly placed, the handles are rotated a few degrees with only wrist movement in a slow, steady and controlled manner - no squeezing!

When to use?
The Physics Forceps are effective in most cases, including decayed or broken down teeth, endodontically treated teeth, fractured or fragile teeth, curved or long rooted molars and cuspids, or any tooth that would historically be challenging with conventional instrumentation. The Physics Forceps are ideal for implantologist that wants to preserve the surrounding bone and tissue in preparation for dental implants.

Why it works?
The Physics Forceps place a constant and steady load on the tooth, allowing ”creep” to build, releasing hyaluronic acid, resulting in the break down of the periodontal ligaments. Studies have proven this breakdown occurs in a much faster time period than conventional methods that employ intermittent, rocking or brute strength types of forces.
