Wooden cased, by Tools and Machinery
Supplies Ltd., London.
This object looks more like an instrument of
torture, rather than something used in dentistry.
It was used to loosen teeth in a controlled
way before they were extracted and is known as a dental elevator.
Inside the handle is an electric hammer used
to power the hook-like head at the end – although different
attachments can be added to the hammer.
The elevator is powered by battery, while the
foot pedal acts as an on/off switch.
The equipment was made by Tools and Machinery
Comes with a variety of chisels.
