Dental Hygiene Instrumentation: Pre-Clinical Foundations
Access, Visibility and Isolation

Worksheet


Name: _____________________________


Now, let’s actually Get Into The Mouth! Please do the following:
1. Isolate and dry tooth # 3 buccal:

a. How is the patient’s chin tilted? Up or down?


b. How is the patient’s head rotated? Right or Left?:
c. Hold the mirror in your nondominate hand and retract the left cheek until

you can see all of the buccal surface of #3


d. How are you feeling?
e. Pick up the Air/Water syringe and dry #3 buccal. Any difficulties?
2. Transilluminate #8 & 9 and #24 & 25

a. Answer a, b, c and d from above


b. Which one is harder to transilluminate? (can you define?)
c. Now look at the lingual surfaces of #8 & 9 and #24 & 25

i. Which one uses direct vision? Which one uses indirect vision?


ii. Which one is harder for you to see the lingual surface?
3. Dry the facial and lingual of #19 and deflect the gingival margin, also demonstrate

the use of the saliva ejector in this area.

a. How is the patient’s chin tilted for buccal and lingual?
b. How is the patient’s head rotated for buccal and lingual?
c. What is the clinician’s clock position for buccal and lingual?
4. Now, write in the tooth number that you would use to fulcrum on for tooth:

a. #3: d. #24


b. #8 e. #19
c. #9 f. #2

4. Practice retraction of the buccal mucosa on both right and left sides - make sure you are retracting out not back. Make certain you try this procedure with both your left and right hand. (Not at the same time, though!) Move your patient’s head away from you or toward you.


5. After you have become adept at retracting the buccal mucosa, use your mirror and light to see all surfaces of the teeth listed below. You may need to use indirect vision to visualize some of these areas.
a. maxillary right first molar

b. maxillary right central incisor

c. maxillary left second molar

d. mandibular left second molar

e. mandibular central incisor

f. mandibular right first molar


6. Using indirect vision, trace the above teeth (a thru f) with a Q-tip in your

dominate hand

a. Did you establish a fulcrum intra orally for each one?
b. What were some of your difficulties?
c. Tell me the clock position, head rotation, chin tilt and fulcrum placement for:

Maxillary right first molar buccal:

lingual:

Mandibular central incisor buccal:

Lingual:
7. Place the saliva ejector in your patient's mouth, on the left side. Try bending the

ejector in to different positions to help it fit. How can you bend the saliva ejector

so that it comfortably stays in the mouth? What side of the mouth would the saliva

ejector ‘hang’ if you were working on:

Maxillary right first molar buccal:

lingual:


Mandibular left canine buccal:

lingual:
8. When you are comfortable with ‘Working in Balance’ and able to ‘Access, See and

Isolate’, please demonstrate to your pod instructor by tracing (with a Q-tip) the

following teeth: # 19 lingual, #19 buccal and #30 lingual



Pod Instructor’s initials when adequately completed:
