3. Surgical Instruments


The dental aspirator (figure 3-26) is an electrically operated vacuum suction unit used to maintain a clear operating field by removing blood, bone chips, debris, and other materials. The unit is fitted with a tube running from a vacuum bottle, which ends in a handle and suction tip. The handle fitted with a suction tip is controlled by the oral surgery assistant in the removal of extraneous material from the surgery site.
