DENTAL BONE CRUSHERS & BONE RONGEURS

 

Dental Bone Crushers and Rongeurs have gained enormous importance in the world today. These are actually just the instruments which are made with quality material. They have an edge which is very sharp indeed. Moreover, these instruments have a scoop like tip. The main purpose for which the instrument is used is extracting the bones. A Bone Rongeur is actually derived from the French language. It means rodent. These kind of tools are commonly used to open up the window of the bone which is located within the skull. It is used by doctors all over the globe in different operations. More specifically, Dental Rongeurs are used by neurosurgeons as well as orthopedic surgeons in various types of operations.

Why and How it is used?

 

A special type of surgery which is known as the oral maxillofacial surgery also uses this instrument. Moreover, A Bone Rongeur is also used by surgeons when they are deal with operations related to the human hand. In the hand surgery, These tools are used for cutting the traumatic amputated bone. This helps in allowing the human skin to close. Other than the mentioned uses, They also carry various other uses as well. It is used in the cadaver dissection. In this type of dissection, the rongeur allows the operator to break through the human ribs. The breaking through the human ribs is required when the anterior wall of chest has to be removed. In fact, Rougeurs are designed to break through the hard and tough tissues. Such tissues include cartilage. Moreover, Rougeurs are also used to crack and cut different bones. The term ‘Rougeur’ sounds confusing to a lot of people. It actually comes from a French background. It is derived from the French word ‘rodent’, which serves as a noble reference to the fact that the word ‘Rongeur’ is used to refer to an instrument whose main ambition is to crack and cut different bones. Of course, all this stuff happens under the control of the surgeon who is specially trained to use the Rougeur. Apart from all the uses that a Rougeur provides in surgery, there are other uses of this instrument as well. A lot of the times, the Rougeur is used by dentists as well. Moreover, they can be used by other, non-technical people as well. A good example might be the instrument that a cook uses to butcher a meat. It is very close to a Rougeur. The Rougeur comes in various sizes. However, the main look of all of them is same. All the Rougeurs have a curved tip. This curved tip is very sharp and commonly used to get the bone out. Almost all of the Rougeurs are designed to give the operator full control and grip over the product so that he can extract the tissue or the bone of his choice. Some of the Rougeurs are loaded with springs. This gives the operator even more grip and control over the rougeur. As mentioned above, a Rougeur is used a lot by dentists. This is because it helps the dentists in removing tartar or to get it completely off the teeth if need be. It must be kept in mind that rougeurs are very strong indeed and they should be very carefully used by the operator so that he does not damage any bone or any tissue. There are a lot of cases when more than required force is applied in order to run the rougeur. This can cause a lot of unintended damage to the patient. So, they should be handled very carefully.

Great Design

 

The Dental Rongeurs are specially designed to give them the shape of a forceps and thus they are commonly referred to as rougeur forceps. Moreover, there are other terms out there for different types of rougeurs. The surgeons also use different terms for different types of rougeurs. This is particularly important because it serves as a communication tool between the surgeon and his assistant. So if the surgeon asks his assistant for any rougeur, he will of course use a special term for it. The assistant will understand it and pass the right instrument. All the medical instruments are always sterilized. This is extremely important for human health. If the instruments are not sterilized properly, it might cause diseases to spread from one patient to another. Moreover, a rougeur can also be sharpened. The surgeon, when he thinks that the instrument isn’t good enough for surgeries, can send it for sharpening. Of course, there is a need of sterilization when the instrument comes back. The Bone Crushers are designed so that the operator can work without putting a decent amount of effort into the job, so that the surgeons and dentists do not get tired during the operation, which is much desired in the modern days.
