Dentists use Needle Holders to hold a dental needle in place. The Needle Holder is a device that fits over the end of a needle. They are also available in different shapes, such as curved or straight. It is made of stainless steel for durability and easy sterilization. The design of the needle holder allows for a comfortable grip, making it easier to use.

Composition of a Needle Holder:
The four main parts of a Needle Holder are the jaws, shanks, handles, and tips. The handles can be either straight or curved, depending on the type of needle holder. Some types of needle holders have a ratcheting mechanism that secures the needle in place once it has been inserted into the jaws. The shank is the part of the needle holder that attaches to the jaws.
The handle of the needle holder should be comfortable to hold and should not slip easily out of the user's hand. Some needle holders also come with a built-in thread cutter, which can be a handy feature to have.
What is a Needle Holder's use?
A Needle Holder is a medical instrument used by surgeons, nurses, and other medical professionals to hold a needle steady during suturing. It is also known as a needle clamp. The needle holder has two arms, each of which has a clamping mechanism. The arms are squeezed together to close the clamps around the needle, which then holds the needle steady during suturing.
The needle holder is also commonly used to remove surgical stitches after surgery. The arms of the holder are opened up, and the stitches are pulled out one at a time.
