Scaler Tip - Mini-Extended Gracey, ME14, Cone Socket
Hartzell & Son's Mini-Extended Gracey Cone Socket Tips are the same as "Extended Gracey" but feature 1/2-length blades, which makes for easy access and adaptibility in deep pockets. The instruments are available in either carbon steel or stainless steel. Carbon steel instruments have the advantage of retaining much longer-lasting shapened edges than stainless steel instruments, due to the extremely hard steel, though they require more careful cleaning and sterilization. The decision to use carbon steel or stainless steel is a matter of preference for each dentist or hygenist.
