Maxillary Right Lingual

There are three different techniques to work on the right lingual:


1. Work using direct vision from the 1 o'clock position. Have the patient to turn the head towards the right. Use the third finger to retract the left cheek to increase visibility.

2. Work using indirect vision from the 11 o'clock position. First, place the ErgoFinger®; secondly, add the mirror to the same hand.

Tip:
Rubbing a small amount of prophy paste into the mirror will keep it clean and enhance visibility!

3. Work using direct vision work from the 8 o'clock position. Have the patient turn the head towards the right. Use the middle finger to retract the right cheek to increase visibility. Turn the nozzle's opening towards the scalers' tip.
