Lever for Roots Beck curve, 3.5mm
Helmut Zepf's Beck levers work with many support points (5 to 7) during the dislocation phase, which prevent slipping due to the different types of tip surfaces, as opposed to a conventional tool with rounded edges, which only works with 1-2 support points.
This makes the Beck Levers much more effective.
The elliptical shape of the tip allows easy access between the interdental spaces, in fact by rotating the instrument 180° it is possible to dislodge in four directions: 2 mesial and 2 distal directions.
These instruments should not be used as a classic lever, as shown in Figure 3. Due to the special shape, excessive force on the tip can cause it to break.
