Tooth luxation, the second stage of an extraction, is performed using lifts. Once the ligament has been removed, the lift will allow the tooth to be mobilised and luxated from its socket.
To do this, this instrument will insert itself into the space previously left by the syndesmostoma (between the root cementum and the alveolar bone), and act as a lever. Thus, the root lift will allow to break all the desmodontal fibers in order to completely dislodge the tooth. The lift will use the alveolar bone for support and not the neighbouring teeth to avoid damaging them. When the tooth is mobilised, an audible sign called "sucking sound" or "singing tooth", which the air makes as it passes between the tooth and the alveolus, means that the action of the lift is complete. All that remains is to grasp the tooth to extract it completely from the mouth.
Ergonomic handle lifters are an improved version of the standard lifters. They have a very special design that offers an even more comfortable grip, and combine cutting sensitivity with minimal force required
Thinner than a conventional root lifter, it is particularly effective in hard-to-reach areas or for dislodging residual roots with little grip.
The new handle design combines the advantages of easy cleaning and sterilisation with a perfect fit.
Bernard lifts with ergonomic handle have the following features:
- Non-dismantled, the ergonomic lifts are characterised by a thin handle, facilitating access to narrow surfaces, and alternating curved and hollow reliefs allowing a better holding of the instrument in the surgeon's hand
- Very sharp at the tip, this triangular-shaped lift can be used as a lift and as a periotome for small root remains
- The tip has a convex outer surface that contacts the alveolar bone, and a concave inner surface that contacts the tooth
The ergonomically designed Bernard Elevator is heavy enough to provide a firm grip for safe and effective procedures. The handle is followed by a long shaft and a flat, pointed arrow tip allowing optimal access into the periodontal space to smoothly separate the periodontal fibres
They adapt perfectly to the different areas of the mouth:
The straight lift: recommended for the anterior teeth of the maxilla
Curved lift: recommended for the anterior teeth of the mandible
Bayonet lift: recommended for the maxillary posterior teeth
Inclined lift (left or right): recommended for the posterior teeth of the mandible
- Instrument length: 16.5 cm
- Two tip sizes available:
O Instruments with 4.0 mm arrow tip for smooth separation of the desmodontal fibres
O Instruments with 4.5 mm arrowhead for gentle separation of larger desmodontal fibres
