Luxator Periotome is a surgical instrument specially designed for extraction by vertical luxation, correctly used an indispensable instrument in every dental clinic. The tip of the instrument is very thin and sharp to be inserted into the periodontal space between bone and tooth, cut off the ligaments and at the same time compress the alveolar bone. To bend, chip or otherwise damage the tip strong elevation forces are required that may not occur by regular vertical luxation. Should such forces be applied there will be damages to the cheekbone before damage to the tip is made.
Luxator Periotomes are not intended for use as elevators! Any kind of use for leverage will result in damages to the tip. The surgical tip is made of hardened stainless special steel specifically developed for surgical instruments thus making a very strong instrument despite the precision thin tip. The hardening process also gives excellent durability in the sharpness of the instrument.
- Used to cut the periodontal ligaments. The thin cutting metal blade is designed to cut off the periodontal ligaments and widen the space between the alveolar bone and the root.
- Comes in light handles (grey, pale blue or pale yellow).
- The tips are extremely sharp and can be damaged if excessive force is used. These tips are not designed for strong forces.
