Anterior Scalers

Anterior Scalers are used to remove deposits from supragingival surfaces of anterior teeth. There are three common design classifications for anterior scalers— Sickle Scalers (curved blade with a pointed tip), Jacquette Scalers (straight blade with a pointed tip) and Hoe Scalers (flat or rounded blades). In this section, you will find many anterior scaler combinations and designs for every application.
