Scissors, Dental, Prosthetic Material

These scissors are typically handheld, manual, heavy-duty instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with sharp edges that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; both parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Prosthetic material dental scissors are used to trim and/or cut plates, collars, and crowns during dental prosthodontic procedures (including modeling plastic impressions).
