- The Cislak Way
Please note that these elevators are most commonly used for equine and exotic procedures, though some find the size 10 and 12 suitable for larger dogs.
Winged elevators can be used to cover most extraction procedures. The elevators is used with a steady gentle rotational pressure for 10 to 30 seconds to fatigue the periodontal ligament and cause hemorrhage among its fibers.
As the space allows, the elevator is pressed further apically along the tooth, using a slow twisting action on the instrument. Excess force should not be necessary if correct technique is used.
Proper handle size is important to ensure that the instrument can be held correctly to prevent slippage, especially with bone structure of questionable stability that could fracture.
The Winged elevators should not be used in levered action since their function is to sever the ligament by sliding around the root. Once the tooth becomes loose, the elevator can be pressed to the bottom of the alveolus with leverage to remove the tooth.
Tip size: available from 1 to 8 mm

Because the size of the instrument makes a big difference to ergonomics, comfort, technique, and the safety of the patient, it is important to know what handle and shank size fit you best.

Cislak Manufacturing is the source for quality crafted dental hand instruments for the veterinarian. All Cislak instruments are made of the highest quality materials in the USA or Europe (the only exceptions are noted). Cislak’s instruments are all hand checked so they meet their exacting standards and have a life time warranty. Cislak has worked with a number of veterinary dental specialists to develop a line of instruments with specific veterinary needs in mind. Knowing the importance of being able to hold the instrument correctly, Cislak offers multiple handle choices to suit all customers.
Cislak instruments also come with the added benefit of the ability to be re-tipped because they are manufactured in such a way that the handle and shank can be separated. Customers can then save the handles of any damaged or worn instruments and send them to Serona for re-tipping, rather than replacing them with new instruments at a higher cost.
Cislak’s warranty covers all of their instruments for 100% of all material failure and workmanship defects. Material failure is defined as any defect, pitting or corroding or breakage due to a fault in the steel or handle of an instrument. Any instrument found to have these types of defects will be repaired or replaced.
Cislak’s warranty does not cover instruments that break due to over or improper use, improper cleaning or sterilization (sterilizing with bad water or the wrong temperature), dropped instruments, improper sharpening or normal wear and tear.
