Smaller amount of bone should be removed in each of multiple bites. Never used the Boehler Rongeur for removing large amount of a bone in a single bite. The jaws of Boehler Rongeur are slightly cup shaped, it provides additional grip with bone as well as it makes easy to enlarge holes via scooping.
Bone Rongeur is used for the removal of sharp edges of the alveolar crest of the bone following tooth extraction. The Bone Rongeur has extraction forceps or pliers like design terminating at the distal end with sharp edges.
