Cement spatulas are dental instruments used in restorative dentistry for mixing, applying, and manipulating dental cement or other dental materials during various dental procedures. These spatulas typically have a flat, smooth, and flexible blade on one end and a handle on the other end for grip and control. They come in various shapes and sizes to accommodate different types of dental cement and application techniques.

Here are some common types of cement spatulas and their uses:

  1. Standard Cement Spatula: This type of spatula has a flat, rectangular blade on one end, ideal for mixing dental cement or filling materials on a mixing pad. The flat surface allows for thorough mixing and manipulation of the material to achieve the desired consistency.
  2. Double-Ended Spatula: Double-ended spatulas have two different blade shapes or sizes on each end, providing versatility for mixing and applying different types of dental materials. For example, one end may have a larger blade for mixing, while the other end may have a smaller blade for precise application.
  3. Spatula with Knives: Some cement spatulas feature one or more small knives or cutting edges along the blade, allowing for easier manipulation and shaping of dental materials during placement. These knives can be used to trim excess material or create smooth margins around restorations.
