The set of 5 Spade Proximators™ includes all the configurations of the Spade tippped Proximator™ needed to access the entire mouth.
When the Proximators™ were introduced the straight Sharpened Spade was recommended for creation of a purchase point for the other Proximators™. The very fine and sharp point is incredibly well suited to engage and advance into tight spaces. However it soon became clear the the Sharpened Spade Proximators™ was the favorite of our customers. The issue of posterior access was addressed with the later introduction of the Mesial and Distal Spade Proximators™ for the maxillary arch and the Left and Right (East/West) Spade Proximators™ for the mandible.
