Tissue forceps are used in surgical procedures for grasping tissue. Often, the tips have “teeth” to securely hold a tissue. Typically tissue forceps are designed to minimize damage to biological tissue.
- Tissue forceps are generally held between the thumb and index finger (two-finger technique) or the thumb, index finger and the middle finger (three-finger technique) for finer tissue manipulation and control.
- Forceps are dental instruments used to retract tissues and facilitate suturing, grasping objects and holding them securely.
