PERIODONTICS: Sharpening Gracey Curettes - Hu Friedy

The demonstration for sharpening a Gracey curette will be shown with a right handed-clinician. Left handed clinicians can proceed by using reverse directions.

To sharpen a Gracey curette, begin with the odd numbered end of the curette. Hold the instrument vertically in your non-dominant hand with the toe pointed toward you. Use a firm palm grasp and brace the top shank of the instrument with your thumb. The cutting edge to be sharpened will be on the right side of the blade.
