Dental forceps are likely the oldest of all dental instruments after the fingers.  Greek and Roman examples are known and all the medieval writers describe and illustrate them.  Apparently, they were used as much for shaking teeth to loosen them as for extraction.  Several forms evolved andare characterized by their resemblance to the beak of a particular bird or jaws of a dog.  Ryff, in 1545, showed early forms of both the parrot’s beak and crow’s bill.
A typical example of the form intended to extract wisdom teeth, polished steel, by New York maker, William R. Goulding.
