Handles Vary. Similar shank as a Gracey 13/14 but suitable for mesial & distal surfaces with a greater angle than the Langer 1/2 to better reach the molars.
The Langer Curettes has the shank design of the Gracey Curettes and a universal blade, allowing utilization of the same instrument for both mesial and distal surfaces. Langer Curettes have the following characteristics:
- Universal blade
- Gracey shank design
- Set of 4 for the entire dentition
- Rigid design
In addition to these characteristics, the Langer Curettes have a slightly shorter and thicker terminal shank. Thus, this makes them a little less flexible and much more effective on larger, tenacious calculus deposits.
