Dental Extraction Forceps for Lower Jaw
Two commonly used extraction forceps for the mandibular anteriors and bicuspids are
Dental Forceps No. 151
Dental Forceps No. 203
Forceps #151 are used primarily to extract mandibular anteriors, bicuspids, and roots and are often known as the mandibular universal forceps. These forceps are similar to the #150 forceps except the beaks are set at an angle opposite to the slightly curved handles.
Forceps #203 are used on mandibular anterior, bicuspids, and roots. These forceps are like the #101 (mentioned later), except the beaks are more sharply angled from the handles. Like the #101 handles, the #203 handles are straight (fig. 5-40).
