Mandibular Left Lingual
There are three different techniques to work on the mandibular left lingual using direct vision from the 9 o'clock position. Ask the patient to turn the head towards the right a bit.
1. Use the ErgoFinger® to retract the tongue while the third finger retracts the cheek for better visibility
2. Use the mirror to retract the tongue. Place the mirror first and grab onto it to assist retracting with ErgoFinger®.
3. Use the cotton roll to retract the tongue. Set a cotton roll to the side of the tongue and then place the ErgoFinger's nozzle onto the cotton roll and press gently to create space.
