A Dental instrument used to extract teeth. This specially designed periodontal ligament knife has a fine tapered blade that compresses the alveolar, cuts the membrane, and eases the tooth from its socket. The ability to reduce trauma during tooth extraction is becoming increasingly important, especially for patients requiring subsequent implant placement with minimal bone loss. Medical Tools dental Luxators are specially designed periodontal ligament knives with a fine tapered blade that compresses the alveolar, cuts the membrane, and gently eases the tooth from its socket reducing damage to surrounding tissue and keeping a better anatomy for an implant site.
The Luxator Instruments are used by cutting and rocking instead of the traditional elevating methods of lifting and prying. The rigid thin blade of the Luxator is inserted into the periodontium two-thirds the length of the root, allowing the final loosening and removal of the tooth to be performed with minimal amount of force. The result is a clean extraction with little tissue damage and less postoperative bleeding and pain.
