The Luxatip is ergonomically designed for comfort and control during use. The shape and size of the handle is designed to minimize the force needed. The tip is extremely fine, so that you can insert it easily between bone and root with the minimum of destruction. The specially processed Stainless steel used in the blade is extremely durable and it retains its strength and sharpness after sterilization.
A luxatip is made of softer steel than an elevator, it is used as a wedge rather than a first-class or wheel-and-axle lever. Therefore, in a nonsurgical extraction, the luxator is always used parallel to the root.
- Tips are more finely tapered than elevators tips.
- Combination of a Periotome and an elevator.
- The sharp tip enables more efficient cutting of the periodontal ligament, while the tapering shaft assists with controlled expansion of the bony socket.
- The extraction operation may be performed with the minimum amount of tissue damage.
