located close to a thumb ring bottom where an end of a syringe plunger connects to the thumb ring. the expanse between the user's thumb and fingers is also reduced when aspirating. Each of the movable rings is connected to the plunger. The movable rings fit through guide slots in the barrel. A pair of axially movable grasping rings is oppositely spaced along the sides of the barrel. while the grasping ring is braced against motion. With the insert aperture close to the thumb ring bottom. Barrel ~ A hypodermic syringe barrel has a delivery tip at one end and an axially movable plunger spaced within the barrel movable toward and away from the delivery tip. Finger Grip ~ Finger grip collar positioned on the proximal end of a syringe or cartridge barrel by a snap-on motion to facilitate manipulation of the syringe or cartridge during the injection or withdrawal of a medical fluid into or from a site. . The finger grip collar requires no special orientation or positioning on the barrel of the syringe or cartridge for the practitioner to manipulate the assemblage. The insert further comprises a moderately pliable circumference groove about the insert that matches the syringe thumb ring receivable therein by snapping the insert into place in the thumb ring passage with groove rims being resiliently distorted in allowing the thumb ring to pass into the groove. Thus. The insert comprises a thumb aperture adapted to receive a user's thumb in a comfortable fit with the aperture eccentric from the thumb ring passage. When the movable rings are conveyed toward the end-mounted grasping ring. A grasping ring is connected to the barrel at the opposite end of the barrel from the delivery tip.Parts of Syringe Thumb Ring ~ A thumb ring insert that reduces the effective size of a syringe thumb ring thumb passage. the syringe is aspirated. Piston Rod ~ The piston assembly includes a finger grip by which the syringe may be advantageously and accurately manipulated by a health care worker using only a single hand to complete both the aspiration and injection steps. range of movement between aspiration and expression of the syringe is reduced as free float of the thumb in the thumb ring is effectively eliminated.
Harpoon ~ Reduces strain from pull back distance during aspiration Anesthetic Cartridge Glass Stopper Glass Cylinder .Threaded Tip~ A syringe tip is locked into a three-way dental handpiece body by means of a syringe tip locking assembly that screws into a threaded receiver in the body of the handpiece.
Diaphragm ~ Where the syringe end of the needle penetrates into the anesthetic solution. Rubber Stopper ~ Located in the harpoon end of the cartridge. Care and Handling of the Dental Needle ~ Carefully examine the cartridge before using them Dental neeedle Syringe end Hub Shank of needle Bevel of needle .Rubber Diaphragm Aluminun Cap Neck Parts of the Anesthetic Cartridge. Aluminum Cap ~ Located at the opposite end of the cartridge from the rubber plunger. The diaphragm is made of a latex rubber. This provides protection to the patient. and the assistant should the glass break. Is is a silver-solored aluminum cover that fits tightly around the neck of the glass cartridge. A thin plastic laver covers all glass cartridges. Most stoppers are treated with silicone so that they can move along the inside of the glass more smoothly. the dentist. In the center of the end is a thin diaphragm. Glass Cartridge ~ Contains the solution. The stopper should be slightly indented from the edge of the glass cartridge.
Along the inside of the shank runs the lumen. The hub may be a plastic or metal piece. . (In case of a needle stick. if the seal is already broken. It is sometimes referred to as the shaft. Keep the protective covers on the needles when they are not being used. Of the operator penetrates the tissue with the needle more than four times during a procedure. a seal must be broken. do not use the needle and dispose of the needle as if it had been used. because disposable needles become dull. Dispose of needles when they are not being used. Shank ~ The length of the needle from the hub to the tip of the bevel. always be aware of the location and position of the uncovered needle tip to minimize the risk of a needle stick. Hub ~ The part of the needle that attaches to the threaded end of the syringe. Care and Handling of the Dental Needle ~ The needle is used on a patient and then disposed of in a sharps container. Dispose of needles following OSHA guidelines with the protective coverings and in a sharps container. Syringe end ~The end of the needle that punctures the diaphragm end of the anesthetic cartridge. When opening the needle package. begin treatment and report the incident immediately to the dentist). the needle should be changed. The hub is normally pre-threaded.Parts of Dental Needle Bevel ~ The slanted tip of the needle penetrates the soft tissues.
