Luxator LX Mechanical Periotome Starter Kit
Luxator LX mechanical Periotome sets new standard for atraumatic extraction
Rapidly becoming an integral part of extraction setups, Directa's Luxator LX Mechanical Periotome offers improved safety, precision, and access for more atraumatic, faster extractions.
The Luxator LX self-directing tip reciprocates in a vertical direction, allowing it to follow the root surface and cut periodontal ligaments with more control, minimizing damage to alveolar bone and surrounding gingival tissue. Durable, titanium-coated, stainless steel tips glide easily into the socket and do not require sharpening. Ideal for use in difficult-to-reach areas such as posterior molars, lingual, and distal surfaces.
Simply insert a Luxator LX tip into LX handpiece, activate the motor, and luxate at low speed—2,000 to 4,000 RPM (not to exceed 4,000 RPM). Move the periotome around the tooth to cut periodontal fibers by pressing firmly and following the root surface. Check status of luxation with a Luxator Forte elevator (sold separately). If insertion is difficult, continue with Luxator LX. When complete, remove tooth with ordinary forceps or root pickers.
The Luxator LX Mechanical Periotome Starter Kit includes reciprocating E-type handpiece, 2mm short, 2mm long, 3mm short, 3mm long titanium-coated periotome tips, plunger for tip removal, and autoclavable tip holder. Tips and anodized aluminum handpiece are steam autoclavable to 274°F.
