Looks like you've been doing your own dental work. Good selection.

Shat is the function of the tools,top and bottom, John?

I recently tried over and over again getting a similar photo of this quality, but I gave up in the end ...

... it was like pulling teeth

@handlerstudio Peter, the porcelain handled instrument is a Ceramicolor one with exchangeable tips. The two instruments top and bottom are the spanners used to remove the tips - they are turned in opposing directions.

I shudder to think what some of them are used for. It reminds me that my dental appointment was cancelled the first week of lockdown. Now over due! The background used shows them off well.

I think the idea is that the patient inserts his little fingers and the nurse gradually squeezes the tools

Hurts so much it takes his mind off the torture going on in his mouth
