Luxating instruments designed for extremely narrow places
LM-SlimLift instruments are especially designed to reach places you cannot go with traditional luxating instruments. It allows tooth extraction to be done as atraumatically as possible. This is important in order to enable rapid healing. The extremely fine tip of the instrument is introduced into the very narrow periodontal space. The instrument is slowly advanced towards the apex of the root while turning the instrument gently back and forth. The LM-SlimLift is not suitable for use as an elevator.
Working With the LM-SlimLift
“I use LM-SlimLift instruments currently for nearly all extractions. I also use my older preferred luxating instruments while the use of the traditional ones has become less frequent. LM’s thin luxating instrument can enter even particularly narrow periodontal spaces. When wide instruments are used, the luxating force is spread over a wider area to the sides and deeper towards the tip of the roots so that the fracturing risk of the fragile roots, in particular, is limited considerably. The majority of extractions can be performed with luxating instruments without any need for any other operative measures.
The design and material of the LM-SlimLift instrument make it possible to get an excellent grip on the instrument. At first touch, the handles may even feel too big but in clinical work I have noticed they fit the hand perfectly. The instrument can be held either on the palm of your hand or held only with your fingers. It is easy to pick a suitable instrument for any clinical need from the broad size selection. The wide blades are appropriate for the extraction of the lower molars while the narrow tips are perfect for instance for the extraction of the narrow roots of the upper teeth.
I can recommend the LM-SlimLift instruments for all dentists: it makes sense to abandon the old and poorly functioning instruments altogether. Too often you hear of cases where the treatment of the root has taken close to two hours.”
