A basic set for the optimal performance of surgical procedures using the Hürzeler and Zuhr method. Contains eight tools from the TOUCHGRIP series. By erasing the line between instrumentation intended only for microsurgical or macrosurgical interventions, this cassette is suitable for all types of procedures in the field of dental surgery.

Based on their own long-term clinical experience, Professor Hürzeler and Dr. Zuhr have developed a set of tools that meets the basic needs of implantology and periodontal surgery.

The very name "TOUCHGRIP" points to the excellent fit to the palm and the optimal response of the tools to the operator's movements. The same set can be successfully used in a wide range of micro and macrosurgical procedures.


Micro forceps

Anatomical and surgical microforceps have been combined into one tool to reduce the number of tools needed and thus the frequency of tool changes during suturing. These microforceps are shaped like anatomical forceps with surgical forceps tips. With slight pressure on the handle, only the front part of the pliers closes. This allows surgeons to hold the tissue during dissection or suturing with minimal trauma because the anatomical part of the forceps with the flat end is not closed. Only after higher pressure is applied, the extended part of the tool needed for suturing is also closed, which enables safe holding and knotting of very fine 6-0 and 7-0 microsurgical sutures.


Micro scissors with spring

Curved microscissors with pointed working ends have proven to be ideal for periodontal microsurgery. Until now, it has not been possible to create a tool that includes both sewing scissors and tissue scissors. However, the new design of the TOUCHGRIP microscissors now makes it possible. They can be used to make controlled soft tissue incisions and to remove granulation tissue from the inner side of the flap, but their primary function is to cut the surgical thread during suturing. To facilitate rotary movements, the handles of the microscissors have been given a round shape, but the curved lines do not affect the grip of the tool itself.


Handle for microscalpel

With traditional scalpels, it is not possible to make precise cuts without losing tissue. This is especially true in approximal areas with poor access and at the gingival ridge with a high and narrow profile in small diameter teeth. The handle of the TOUCHGRIP scalpel has a round cross-section and a non-slip surface. It is designed to accommodate microsurgical scalpel blades. For use in periodontal surgery, the best instruments are Keydent's Belly Blades and Microblade SR Blades.


Microneedle holder

In order to have precise control over the microsurgical threads used in periodontal surgery, you need a tool that can firmly grip fine needles of various sizes without bending them. The TOUCHGRIP microneedle holder meets this requirement and its slender arms are still small enough to provide optimal access to the proximal areas. The working end is reinforced with a newly developed carbide insert that reduces wear and optimizes needle support.


Elevator papilla

A papilla elevator is a disc-shaped instrument with a double end and single-sided tips of different diameters. It enables preparation of delicate tissues with minimal trauma, which is especially important in the proximal area, where the use of conventional instruments is almost impossible. For interdental incisions, which are usually performed buccally in the form of modified access flaps, the papilla elevator allows surgeons to completely elevate the interdental tissues. This contributes significantly to the preservation of these structures.


Tunneling knife

This combination tunneling tool has sharp, curette-shaped working ends. The newly developed tunnel knife significantly minimizes the risk of perforation in buccal flaps with uneven thickness. In addition, its use ensures better wound healing and can also bring better aesthetic results. The straight tip is mainly used in the upper jaw, especially where a tunneling technique is required for larger areas of keratinized gingiva. An inclined tip can be used for tunnel preparation in the lower jaw, especially in the buccal area. In addition, bending the tip allows surgeons to rotate the instrument so they can make incisions in proximal areas.


Palatal periosteal elevator

The TOUCHGRIP palatal elevator provides a straight and curved working end. The straight end is used for preparing full-thickness buccal and palatal flaps, while the curved end is excellent for creating a Tinti flap and harvesting autologous grafts from mandibular roughness.

The additional periodontal set containing 7 quality TOUCHGRIP instruments (including cartridges) is intended for periodontal procedures such as minimally invasive lobe resections. The form of the instruments was developed based on the specific requirements for instruments designed for this type of intervention.

For the designers, the priority was not only an efficient cutting attachment, but also the ergonomics of the tools for greater precision and optimal reaction of the tools to the movements of the operator's hand. Therefore, inventors who are dedicated to the development of ergonomic properties of tools were invited to cooperate.
