Directa Dental – Periodontal Ligament Knives

Dentistry Today


Luxator instruments are periodontal ligament knives used to aid in atraumatic extractions. The fine-tapered blade compresses the alveolar bone, cuts the membrane, and eases the tooth from its socket. The handle is designed for tactile control while minimizing force during use. The tip is thin and sharp so it inserts easily between bone and root with minimal damage to the tissues. The instrument handles are color-coded and numbers are marked on the shaft for identification. For more information, call (203) 491-2273 or visit
