Retractors

Definition : Instruments designed to temporarily separate and hold back the edges of incisions usually performed during surgical procedures, exposing and/or giving access to other tissues or organs. Some retractors are used to hold back anatomical parts during dental and oral surgery procedures. Retractors are available in a variety of shapes and styles according to both the tissue and/or organ to be exposed or retracted. Some retractors can retain a position once they are set (i.e., self-retained retractors); other retractors incorporate a fiberoptic system to illuminate deep surgical sites. Dedicated retractors are available for many dental and surgical procedures; other dedicated retractors intended for use in the natural canals are usually classified as specula.
