All About Luxators

Luxator Periotomes - What does that mean exactly?

Luxator Periotome is a surgical instrument specifically designed for extraction by luxation. If correctly used, it’s an indispensable instrument in every dental clinic.

Use it right and you won’t be disappointed!

Luxator Periotomes are not elevators!

To bend, chip or otherwise damage the tip, strong elevation forces are required that should not occur by regular vertical luxation. Should such forces be applied, there will be damage to the cheekbone before damage to the tip is made. Luxator Periotomes are not intended for use as elevators.

How can I see the difference between Luxator Periotome and Luxator Forte?
Luxator Periotomes come in light handles (grey, pale blue or pale yellow) while the Luxator Forte comes in a black handle. The blade also differs.

How to choose the right Luxators?

There are many varieties of blades, sizes, and shapes available, each with their own specific use and purpose. This enables you to choose the ideal instrument for any extraction.

Luxator Periotomes -are specifically designed with fine tapering blades that compress the alveolar bone, cut the membrane, and gently ease the tooth from the socket. The whole operation is performed with a minimum of tissue damage. Available in 8 blades sizes.

Luxator Forte Elevator-Incorporates the world acclaimed ergonomic handle and a unique cornered, ridged tip that enables elevation of roots without risk of damaging the instrument. Luxator Forte is the perfect match to Luxator Periotome to end a successful extraction. Available in 4 blade sizes.

Luxator Short Periotome-the original shorter blade. Attains the correct working position, even with smaller hands. The blade is 10mm shorter than on a regular Luxator Periotome. Available in 5 blades sizes.

Luxator Dual Edge Periotome-innovative dual-purpose tip. Safer stepped insertion reduces the risk of slipping, making it ideal for deeply fractured teeth and decayed roots. Available in 2 blades sizes.

Luxator Periotome Titanium-glides easier into the socket. The Luxator Periotome Titanium offers enhanced durability. Extraction is performed with a minimum of tissue damage. The durable titanium coated tip does not require sharpening. Available in 4 blades sizes.

Luxator P-series Periotome- offers good tactility and reach with the penholder grip. These instruments are thinner and sharper than the original Luxator instruments. Initiating the extraction process with the P-series range will simplify your work. Reasons to use Luxator® P-Series

Easy to cut the periodontal ligaments - The titanium coated tip lowers friction compared to conventional steel instruments. This ensures better access and effective cutting om the periodontal ligaments.

Prope and separation - The good tactility improves operator´s ability to probe the periodontal ligament space. It is also useful in multi-rooted molars when the roots require separation.

Minimum power required - The shape and pen-like action of Luxator P-series offers good results with less effort and force required.

User friendly instruments - The penholder grip design provides good tactility, sight and control, making the instrument effective in achieving atraumatic and controlled extractions.

 Available in 4 different blade sizes.
