Aufgrund langjähriger Erfahrung in der klinischen Anwendung haben Professor Hürzeler und Dr. Zuhr ein den grundlegenden Bedürfnissen der Implantat- und Parodontalchirurgie entsprechendes Instrumentarium entwickelt. Der Name „TOUCHGRIP“ steht für die Kombination aus optimaler Griffigkeit und idealem Feedback für den Anwender. Dabei wird nicht mehr strikt zwischen mikro- und makrochirurgischem Einsatzbereich unterschieden. Stattdessen steht nun ein Set für alle Indikationen zur Verfügung.
TOUCHGRIP 03 - Micro Scalpel Handle by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€290.90Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
With traditional scalpel blades, it is impossible to make precise incisions without any loss of tissue. This is especially true in interproximal areas with bad access and in scalloping gingival tissues with a high and narrow profile at teeth with small diameter. The TOUCHGRIP scalpel handle has a round cross-section and an anti-skid surface. It is designed to accommodate microsurgical scalpel blades. Tunnel blades and the Microblade SR by Keydent are the best tools for use in periodontal surgery.
TOUCHGRIP 05 - Papilla Elevator, double-ended, with replaceable tips by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€177.70Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
The papilla elevator is a disk-shaped, double-ended instrument with single-edged tips of different diameter. It allows for the preparation of fine tissues with a minimum of trauma, which is of particular importance in the interproximal area, where conventional instruments make this nearly impossible. For interdental incisions, which are usually made buccally in modified access flaps, the papilla elevator allows surgeons to raise the interdental tissues completely. This makes a substantial contribution to preserving such structures.
TOUCHGRIP 06 - Tunneling Knife, straight/angled by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€167.20Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
This combined tunneling instrument has sharp curette-shaped working ends. The newly developed tunneling knife strongly minimizes the risk of perforation with buccal split-thickness flaps. Moreover, its use ensures improved wound healing and can even provide improved esthetic results. The straight tip is mainly used in the maxilla, especially where a tunneling technique is required for larger areas of keratinized gingiva. The angled tip can be used to prepare a tunnel in the mandible, especially in the buccal region. In addition, the angulation allows surgeons to twist the instrument so they can make incisions into interproximal areas.
TOUCHGRIP 07 - Palatal Periosteal Elevator by Huerzeler/Zuhr
The palatal raspatory by TOUCHGRIP provides a straight and an angled working end. The straight tip is used for the preparation of buccal and palatal full-thickness flaps while the angled tip is excellently suited for creating a Tinti flap and harvesting autografts from the tuberosity.
TOUCHGRIP 04 - Micro Needle Holder, straight, smooth, 17.5 cm by Huerzeler/Zuhr
To enable precise control of the microsurgical sutures used in periodontal surgery, you need an instrument that firmly grips fine needles of different sizes without bending them. The TOUCHGRIP micro needle holder fulfills this requirement, and its slender arms are still delicate enough to ensure optimum access to interproximal areas. The working end is reinforced with a newly developed carbide insert to reduce wear and to optimize the support for the needle.
TOUCHGRIP 01 - Micro Forceps, 17.5 cm, by Huerzeler/Zuhr
Anatomical and surgical micro-forceps have been combined into one instrument to reduce the number of instruments needed and thus the frequency of instrument changes while suturing. These micro forceps are shaped like anatomical forceps with surgical-forcep tips. If slight pressure is applied to the instrument handles, only the anterior part of the forceps will close. This allows surgeons to hold the tissue with minimal trauma during preparation or suturing, since the anatomical part of the forceps with its flatter end is not yet closed. Only once higher pressure is applied will the elongated suture plateau of this part of the instrument close, thus permitting a safe hold and knotting of the very delicate 6-0 and 7-0 microsurgical sutures.
TOUCHGRIP 09 - Scalpel Handle for standard blades by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€97.75Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
This scalpel handle is round and accommodates #12D, 15C and 15 blades. It enables you to make especially precise and controlled incisions.
TOUCHGRIP 02 - Micro Spring Scissors, 17.5 cm by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€542.75Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
A curved pair of micro scissors with pointed working ends has proven ideal for periodontal microsurgery. Until now it was impossible to create an instrument that incorporated both suture scissors and tissue scissors. The TOUCHGRIP micro scissors’ new design, however, now makes this possible. It can be used to make controlled cuts into soft tissues and to remove granulation tissue from the inside of the flap, but its primary function is cutting off the suture. To facilitate rotational movements, the micro scissors’ handles have been given a round shape, but the curved lines have no impact on the surface grip of the instrument.
TOUCHGRIP 21 - Gap Plugger, single-ended by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€149.30Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
The TOUCHGRIP gap plugger was specifically developed to insert bone substitutes into the gap between implant and buccal alveolar wall. Its semilunar cross section was modeled after the space between the implant and the alveolar wall. The Gap Plugger is large enough to be used vertically to condense the material but still delicate enough to permit work in the lateral incisor region or the anterior mandible.
TOUCHGRIP 08 - Raspatory with Prichard Retractor by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€184.85Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
The TOUCHGRIP raspatory is a combination of a Prichard retractor with a rounded modern raspatory based on a design by Huerzeler/Zuhr.
TOUCHGRIP 18 - Sharp Spoon, double-ended, with replaceable tips by Huerzeler/Zuhr
Extremely sharp, double-ended bone curette to remove granulation tissues from extraction sockets and indentations in the bone. The special design of the tips resembling a large curette, makes this bone curette much more efficient than traditional ones.
TOUCHGRIP 10 - Periodontal Probe, double-ended by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€104.25Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
This single-ended periodontal probe with 1-mm scale lets surgeons make very detailed measurements even under difficult conditions.
TOUCHGRIP 22 - Micro Anatomic Tweezers, straight, 17.5 cm by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€335.05Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
The TOUCHGRIP micro anatomic forceps is primarily used to remove sutures.
TOUCHGRIP 11 - Mirror with Lip Holder by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€86.50Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
Double-sided mirror with lip retractor.
TOUCHGRIP 16 - Back Action Chisel, double-ended, with replaceable tips by Huerzeler/Zuhr

TOUCHGRIP 12 Hilger Retractor, single-ended by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€110.85Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
Hilger cheek retractor with round handle.
TOUCHGRIP 17 - Fedi Bone Chisel combined with straight small chisel, with replaceable tips by Huerze
Sharp Fedi bone chisel for contouring bone at the mesial side of teeth and straight chisel for interproximal bone contouring.
TOUCHGRIP Tray 1/1 (without Instruments) by Huerzeler/Zuhr
€212.10Prices plus VAT plus shipping costs
The tray is used to store and sterilize the periodontal microsurgical instruments.
TOUCHGRIP 19 - Bone Scraper, double-ended, with replaceable tips by Huerzeler/Zuhr
The TOUCHGRIP bone scraper enables the surgeon to collect small amounts of autogenous bone shavings during periodontal surgery.
TOUCHGRIP 23 - Micro Needle Holder, straight, extra-fine, by Huerzeler/Zuhr
This extra-fine microsurgical needle holder from the TOUCHGRIP series features an especially delicate and filigree design. It was developed for the extremely sophisticated, minimally invasive, atraumatic techniques used in microsurgical protocols, and thus meeting the most demanding specifications.
TOUCHGRIP 13 - Curved Curette, double-ended, with replaceable tips by Huerzeler/Zuhr
Premium curette from the TOUCHGRIP series with angled tips.
TOUCHGRIP 14 - Straight Curette, double-ended, with replaceable tips by Huerzeler/Zuhr
