  • Minimizes trauma to surrounding bone: The thin, sharp blade of a luxating elevator 3mm allows for precise cutting of the periodontal ligament, which connects the tooth to the jawbone
  • Facilitates removal of loose, impacted, or broken teeth: Luxating elevators are especially useful for removing teeth that are loose, impacted (stuck in the jawbone), or broken.
  • Reduces pressure on adjacent teeth: Unlike some other extraction methods, luxating elevators do not put pressure on the teeth next to the one being removed.
  • May shorten extraction time: By effectively loosening the tooth and creating space in the socket, luxating elevators can help to shorten the extraction time.

Description

Luxating Root Elevator is a slender, hand-held instrument typically made of stainless steel. It features a sharp, curved tip with a slight bend to facilitate access to the roots of the tooth. The handle is ergonomically designed for comfortable grip and precise control during surgical procedures.

Uses:
  1. Tooth Extraction: It is primarily used to gently and precisely loosen the tooth from the surrounding bone and ligaments before extraction.
  2. Luxation Technique: The elevator aids in the luxation technique, which involves controlled application of force to dislodge the tooth from its socket without causing excessive trauma to the surrounding tissues.
  3. Root Access: Its thin, curved tip allows for better access to deeply positioned roots, especially in cases of impacted or partially erupted teeth.
Key Features:
  1. Curved Tip: The curved design enables better reach and maneuverability around curved or obstructed roots.
  2. Sharp Edge: The sharp edge assists in cutting through the periodontal ligament, facilitating easier extraction.
  3. Ergonomic Handle: The ergonomic handle ensures comfortable grip and precise control, reducing hand fatigue during procedures.
  4. Stainless Steel Construction: Made of durable stainless steel, the instrument is resistant to corrosion and can withstand repeated sterilization.
  5. Multiple Sizes: Available in various sizes to accommodate different tooth shapes and sizes.
FAQs:
  1. Can it be used for all tooth extractions?
    The Luxating Root Elevator is particularly useful for teeth with curved or deeply embedded roots. However, its use may vary depending on the specific case and the dentist’s preference.
  2. Is it suitable for use in pediatric dentistry?
    While the Luxating Root Elevator can be used in pediatric dentistry, care must be taken due to the delicate nature of children’s teeth and jawbones. Pediatric dentists may opt for alternative instruments better suited for smaller mouths.
  3. Does it require special maintenance?
    Like all dental instruments, the Luxating Root Elevator should be cleaned, sterilized, and properly maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure optimal performance and longevity.
  4. Can it cause damage to surrounding tissues?
    When used correctly by a skilled practitioner, the Luxating Root Elevator minimizes trauma to surrounding tissues. However, improper use or excessive force can potentially cause damage to adjacent structures, highlighting the importance of proper training and technique.
  5. Is it reusable?
    Yes, the Luxating Root Elevator is designed for multiple uses. After each procedure, it should be thoroughly cleaned, sterilized, and inspected for any signs of wear or damage.
