OMNIA MAXIL Molt Periosteal Elevators, can also be used for the separation of very thin tissues adhering to bone surface
This instrument presents two identical active ends, with a slight concave configuration. It is used after the Fenton 1 and it helps apply further pressure in a controlled manner that will ultimately help elevate a flap. Depending on its position in reference to the soft tissues, protractive or retractive movements are generated. When dealing with thicker, sturdier tissue, this instrument may not carry this flap elevation task to completion. In this situations another instrument will need to be used (Fenton # 3).
This instrument is a larger version of its predecessor, Fenton # 2. With an identical shape and design, the active parts are slightly wider thus allowing a broader surface contact with soft tissue. It is ideal to negotiate thicker, sturdier soft tissue such as that found on the palatal aspects of maxillary teeth or tissue surrounding osseous exostoses and tori.
