PDT H5-L5. Is this the ideal anterior instrument?

 

Intro
This instrument has a straight sickle on one end and a straight curet on the other end.  If you’re looking to simplify your basic setup for general scaling, this instrument and a posterior sickle is all you need.  This instrument also comes in a mini version (see link below).

PDT H5-L5. Primarily an anterior instrument, but also works well on pre-molars, especially 1st pre-molars.

  1. I’ve used Hu-Friedy version of this (137) for years and include it in all my basic set ups. They also have a 137 mini which has a smaller currette end great fro period pockets.
