Luxator by Directa ( Design by dentist )

New delicate instrument for extractions

          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) (2)
