Aside from the fingers, dental forceps are the oldest instruments used for tooth pulling. A dental elevator is used to loosen the tooth before it is removed, or to remove small parts of the tooth and roots that cannot be gripped by the forceps. The forceps and elevator are made from steel and have ebony handles. The handles of the forceps are textured to improve grip.
