A couple of tools dentists use are sickle probe and contra-angled probe. For painful procedures they use syringes and disposable needles. They use radiograph equipment to x-ray teeth and use disposable saliva ejector to suction saliva or use cotton wool and pellets to absorb saliva and also blood. Dentists always wear masks, gloves, safety glasses, and face shields to protect them. Let’s not forget about the mouth mirror but dentists use all kinds of different hand tools, numbing tools, and dental drills.
