Physics Forceps: An advancement in exodontia?

Physics ForcepsHas anybody evaluated Misch’s new Physics Forceps and One Minute Extraction technique?

GoldenMisch, Inc., which produces the Physics Forceps claims that “they represent the most exciting and innovative advancement in exodontia in over 200 years.” By employing an efficient first-class lever, the Physics Forceps deliver a mechanical advantage that is useful for achieving atraumatic extractions.

In addition, the company comments that:

“A noticeable and very unique benefit of the Physics ForcepsĀ® is that they make only one point of contact with the tooth, as opposed to conventional forceps that work like pliers. The days of pulling, squeezing and twisting are now gone forever. “

What are your thoughts on this new technology? Will you be buying these and throwing out your conventional forceps?

  1. I have looked at these forceps on the advertising and I am wondering what happens to the buccal gingiva when it is compressed so much upon removal of the tooth.
    I once saw in a dental museum a “dental key” that rotated a tooth out of the socket and thought that seems like a great idea and why did we give up that idea

  2. The Bumber of the instrument is what actually braces the buccal plate. These forceps require no sqeezing, and follow a completely different technique in extracting teeth. Truly unique!

  3. I bought a full set for $1400 and have done three extractions, one on a failing bicuspid endo with post and crown; two on mandibular molars. It all went exactly as advertized. It’s amazing how effortlessly a tooth “pops” up. Any pressure on the buccal gingiva seems to be minimal, as there was no evidence of damage (much less than after flap reflection, that’s for sure) because there is no squeezing, just rotation against a very broad, padded bumper, The tooth comes out so easy I keep wanting to inspect the tooth to see if I left tips in the socket.

  4. I purchased the entire set three months ago because I’ve been experiencing hand pain, esp. while doing extractions, and am not disappointed. The first time I used these was to extract #’s 2-6, most of which had broken down clinical crowns. # 3 has the classic “three legged stool” 1st molar I would certainly have had to section in the past. I had all five teeth out in a matter of minutes (though we were scheduled for 1 1/2 hours). I have extracted probably 50-60 teeth now with these instruments and am not looking back.

    Extraction techniques have changed little in my 26 years of practice; that is, until now! I’m even excited to see extractions on my daily schedule now and have retired most of my old arsenal of forceps.
