The CTT™ Ceramic Tissue Trimmer allows dentists to perform cosmetic corrections and minor gingivectomies while virtually eliminating bleeding. According to Practicon, this rotating instrument can often replace electro-surgery and surgical blades, and in many cases, the use of retraction cord.

CTT features a point made from a very hard and durable biocompatible oxide material that cuts without “burning” the tissue. Under rotation at 300,000–500,000 RPM, a portion of its kinetic energy is converted to heat sufficient to create hemostasis.

Practicon says the CTT delivers beautiful results and is ideal for gingival modeling, freeing deep cavities, opening sulcus prior to impressions, exposure of intraosseous implant sections and retinated teeth, etc.

The CTT is reusable and fully sterilizable.
