Quick Reference

An instrument which was formerly used for the extraction of teeth. It was a development of the pelican with an elevator instead of a bolster. The tooth was extracted in an arc instead of using an oblique force required by the earlier pelicans, a technique which was considered to be less successful. It was superseded by the tooth key in the early 18th century.
