Extraction and Immediate Implant with Luxator LX


This short video shows an extraction of tooth #8, which has a crown that is non-restorable. The treatment plan is to extract and do an immediate implant and provisional. The extraction is done using the Luxator LX and Physics Forceps. The Luxator LX is a mechanical periotome that offers improved safety, precision while offering easier access to hard to reach areas. The self directing tip allows the periotome tip to follow the root surface, reducing the risk of bone damage. Since it will only cut when under pressure, this means no risk of slipping. Anybody else have experience with the Luxator LX?
