New delicate instrument for
The Luxator is a new tooth extraction instrument which ahs the
clinical validity for cutting the periodontal ligaments. Luxator is
a instrument that is used for the extraction of teeth in a way that
differs from traditional extraction methods. It�s form is similar to
existing elevators but it�s most significant feature is that the
blade tip is very thin and highly ridgid, the instrument therefore
resembles a periodontal ligament knife that could be used for
extractions. ( Toschimichi Mori, et al, 2004 ) (8).
The Luxator blade is made of hard stainless steel and extremely
thin. The handle is ergonomically designed for optimal tactility and
control. Place index finger at the point corresponding to the
maximum insertion of the instrument in the alveolar. The index
finger serves as a stop on occlusal surface of adjacent tooth.
Minimal invasive procedures
and patient satisfaction.
When the extraction of a tooth can be smoothly carried out because
of unexpectedly speedy luxation it also means that the patient is
more satisfied. Serveral studies have showed that delayed clinical
healing significantly increased the prevalence of delayed recovery
for lifestyle, oral function, late symptoms, and pain (Ruvo AT et
al, 2005) (7).
Dry socket as a complication after extractions is associated with
loss of the blood clot from the socket and exposure of the bony
surface. It is thought to occur especially if excessive force was
used during the extraction. MINIMAL INVASIVE PROCEDURES SAVE
IMPORTANT BONE STRUCTURE.
Pumping movements may
contribute to bacteriemia.
Cutting of the periodontal ligaments with the Luxator instrument can
be performed with a minimum invasion of periodontal bone structures.
Would healing at extraction socket is rapid.
Minimally invasive procedures
save important bone structures
Less post-extraction pain, swelling and a good prognosis due to the
minimum invasion of extraction socket when using the Luxator,
surrounding bone tissues can be well preserved. In case of immediate
implants a well preserved alveolar bone is of great importance.
Immediate implants are placed into a prepared extraction socket
following tooth removal. Short-term animal and human studies have
shown these implants to be comparable to implants placed into healed
bone. The advantages of the procedure include fewer surgical
sessions, elimination of the waiting period for socket healing,
shortrned edentulous time period, reduced overall cost, as well as
preservation of bone heigh and width. The advantages of immediate
implantation makes take procedure very appealing to patients who are
in need of both extractions and implant therapy (Barzily l, 1993)
