nEriTAL Rom. HOLDER Filed Dec. 8, 1928 Smic@ Patented Got. l, i929 tiene FRANK L. BAILEY, OF NEW BRUNSJVICK, NEW JERSEY, ASSIGNOR TO JOHNSON n JOENSON, OF NEVI BRUNSWCK, JERSEY, A CORPORATION F NEW JERSEY DENTAL ROLL HOLDERy Application led December 8, 1928. Serial No. 324,776.

rhere are times in dental operations when the surgeon has to work quickly, using both hands, and finds it annoying and veXatious to search for dental cotton on the usual tray or stand; and so the object ont my invention is to provide a dental holder oi simple and light construction that readily may be carried as a tinger ring and thus save a lot of lost motion.

The invention in its preferred torni is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure l is a. perspective view showing the application of the holder.

5 Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the holder unapplied and with the jaws parted.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged transverse sectional view ot the jaws in closed relation.

n The improved holder is constituted of elements movable with relation to each other and which when juxtaposed or closed one upon the other form a ring adapted to encircle the finger.

The ring sections are indicated at 5 and they are hinged on the palm side as at 6. Each section is equipped with a curved wing 7 designed for engaging adjoining lingers on the palm side and thus prevent turning or 9 twisting of the holder.

` The tace ends ot the ring sections4 are formed as jaws for gripping the usual cotton roll S. The jaws by preference are halt box sections consisting of end walls 9 and side S3 walls 10.- Evident-ly when juxtaposed or in confronting relation they provide a socket of rectangular boi:` form which is believed best adapted Jfor gripping cotton of roll form. The jaws are constructed for interlocking enig gagement and this is accomplished by providing the inner faces of the side walls of one and the outer faces of the side walls of the other with coinpleinental ribs and channels indi- 'j cated, respectively, at il and l2. The respeci tive end walls have pins or piercing elements 13 designed to penetrate the cotton roll and positively anchor the same in the holder.

Having described my invention, I claim: l. A dental roll holder embodying gripping jaws movable into and out of interlocking relation, and a finger encircling carrier for the jaws.

`2. A dental roll holder embodying gripping jaws movable into and out of interlocking relation, and a finger encircling carrier having wings contoured to engage adjoining fingers to prevent turning movement of the carrier.

3. A dental roll holder embodying relatively movable roll gripping aws formed as half box sections, and a linger encircling carrier for the jaws. 4 l

l. A dental roll holder embodying rela-` tively movable roll gripping jaws having opln testimony whereof I aiiiX my signature.
