Description

Dental Root Elevator
Model: 1219

The Dental Root Elevator is a specialized instrument crucial for oral surgery and endodontic procedures, designed specifically for the extraction of tooth roots and the careful manipulation of teeth within the alveolar bone. Unlike forceps, which grasp and pull the tooth, root elevators are designed to gently separate the tooth from its fibrous attachment to the jawbone, facilitating a less traumatic extraction process.

This tool features a narrow, pointed tip that fits into tight spaces between the tooth and the surrounding bone. The tip is often curved or angled, enabling the dental professional to apply precise leverage to lift the tooth root from its socket. The design of the dental root elevator varies to accommodate different positions within the mouth and to adapt to the unique challenges presented by various root shapes and conditions.

Dental root elevators are indispensable for extracting broken or fractured teeth, where the crown part of the tooth may be missing, and only the root remains embedded in the bone. They are also vital in cases where a tooth is not fully erupted or in situations requiring the removal of roots left behind after a tooth has been partially extracted.

The use of a dental root elevator requires skill and sensitivity to ensure that the surrounding tissue is preserved, and the risk of trauma to the jawbone is minimized. By applying careful, controlled force, the dentist or oral surgeon can effectively loosen the tooth root, making it easier to remove either with the elevator itself or with the assistance of dental forceps.

In addition to their primary function in tooth extraction, dental root elevators can also be used to remove small bone fragments or to assist in the repositioning of neighboring teeth during orthodontic procedures. Their versatility and effectiveness make them an essential tool in the arsenal of dental professionals, contributing significantly to the success of various dental and surgical interventions
