7/8 Standard Gracey Curette, DE
A Gracey 7/8 is arguably the most versatile in the range and can be used on the buccal and lingual surfaces of bicuspids and molars. The instrument has a large contra-angle with only a medium return angle and a shorter shank than the 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 Gracey Curettes. The tip terminates in a hooked toe standing off-line to the instrument to allow for any tendency to twist during use to be countered by the angle of insertion. The remainder of the Gracey range is designed to root plane the posterior teeth, with a bias towards the molars. These patterns are specifically adapted to the complex root anatomy found in this region.
