As the name implies, band removing orthodontic pliers help remove bands, brackets and adhesives. Construction material should be high-grade stainless steel or steel with a chromium and carbon blend. The tip or beak of the band removing orthodontic pliers may be serrated or specially formatted for precision gripping. There may be a replaceable plastic pad on the end of the tip for proper occlusal counterforce. These pliers may be better suited for anterior bands or posterior bands, or may work for both anterior and posterior bands. They should be corrosion resistant and autoclavable. The grip should be comfortable and long enough for proper accessibility. Be sure to choose a reputable vendor who uses high quality construction materials.
