Luxators are similar in design to Elevators but the tip is thinner, flatter and often sharper than an Elevator tip. A Luxator can be an alternative or an addition to an Elevator.
The Luxators job is to break the periodontal ligament and widen the alveolus (tooth socket) by inserting it down the side of the tooth and applying a gentle rocking motion. Often referred to as being like a knife cutting the periodontal ligament. This should make extraction less traumatic to the surrounding teeth and tissues and therefore less painful post-operatively. If needed, an Elevator would then be used to further loosen and elevate the tooth from the socket or, if the tooth is sufficiently mobile, extraction forceps would be the next step.

It is important not to try and lever the tooth with a Luxator as the fine tip isn’t designed for this and may break. It’s important to keep all dental instruments sharp where necessary but more so with Luxators as a blunt tip will significantly reduce its effectiveness.

It is very important to remember when using both Luxators and Elevators to place your index finger on to the instrument at the point of the alveolus you are entering (if not closer to the tip). This will provide a ‘stop point’ to prevent the Elevator or Luxator from slipping and causing iatrogenic damage such as an oro-nasal fistula.

VETisco supply two types of Luxators - our own standard straight luxator sets and the premium luxator sets, including curved and contra-angled luxators.
