Mandibular Right Buccal
There are two different techniques to work on the mandibular right buccal using direct vision from 9 o'clock:
1. The tube hangs under the hand. Use the middle finger and ErgoFinger® together to retract the cheek.
2. Use the pen grip. The middle finger and ErgoFinger® together retract the cheek.
Retracting the cheek only with the ErgoFinger's nozzle part is not recommended to prevent any strain on your finger.
Asking the patient to slightly close will relax the cheek muscles, making it easier to move the cheeks out of the way and give you more room to work.
