The shape and size of the handle is designed to minimize the force needed. Luxators make extractions as trauma free as possible. Used for severing periodontal ligament and luxating root to loosen from socket
Extremely effective for atraumatic extractions.
When you insert the luxator into the gingival margin, it should be directed towards the root surface. Apply axial pressure as you work the instrument down the root surface. Always ensure that your index finger is supporting the shank of the instrument and that another finger is protecting the soft tissue incase you slip. As you work down the root surface, gently rock the luxator to sever the periodontal fibers; this is now providing space for the path of withdrawal of the root. As you create space, air will spell into the apical socket breaking the vacuum allowing easier removal of the tooth.
Remember the luxator is not an elevator, using too much force inappropriately and in the wrong direction could fracture the instrument or harm the patient.
