Dental Elevators
Elevator or Luxator?
Luxator- thin, sharp blade designed to be pushed into the periodontal ligament space down the long axis of the root. It cuts the periodontal ligament fibres and expands the alveolar plate as it is pushes apically. Should not be twisted or lifted (torqued) during use. Must be kept sharp and sterilised after every use.
Elevator – a stocky strong blade used to extract loose teeth using adjacent sound teeth. Not usually meant to go below the gumline. More useful in humans where crown/root ratio is closer to 50:50 and roots are stronger. In animals root ration is closer to 30:70 and roots taper toward the apex.They will fracture if the peridontal ligament fibres are not loosened or cut before forceps are applied or if the instrument is torqued.
Winged Elevators
Veterinary Elevators designed by Dr Robert Wiggs.
They have short winged blades with lateral edges
which curve upwards further than traditional
elevators, improving conformation to the root
structure as well as instrument control.The narrow
neck enhances visibility of the root and the shorter
shaft improves handling and control, especially if the
operator’s hands are not large.The design incorporates the best parts of an elevator and a luxator.Aluminium knurled handles are very comfortable in use. Flattened surface prevents rolling off the table.Available as a boxed set.
