What is periosteal elevator?

Periosteal elevators are mainly used to lift full thickness soft tissue flaps. The tips require protection and need to be kept very sharp otherwise shredding of the flap can happen. The most common types in use are the double ended Molt P9 but also the Molt 2 and Molt 4.

What is a bone elevator used for?

Elevators are used to impart luxation forces to tooth particles, which facilitate severing the periodontal ligament, that connects tooth particles with the surrounding alveolar bone, along the surface areas of tooth particle roots1,2,3.

How do you use a Coupland elevator?

Coupland’s elevators (also known as chisels) are instruments commonly used for dental extraction. They are used in sets of three each of increasing size and are used to split multi-rooted teeth and are inserted between the bone and tooth roots and rotated to elevate them out of the sockets.

What are Warwick James used for?

(R) and (L) Warwick James ideally used for maxillary third molars can often break while luxating a bulky third molar with multiple roots. An ideal approach would be to use a straight elevator that can combine a downward and distal rotation, thereby uniformly luxating the tooth.

Are osteoclasts found in the periosteum?

Periosteum and endosteum contain cells (osteoblasts, osteoclasts, and osteoprogenitor cells) required for bone development and remodeling of the bone.

Does periosteum grow back?

We hypothesize that the regrowth of the periosteum-like material will be thicker than the control and the thickest at the junction of the denuded bone and the bone with periosteum (Fig. 1).

What is the difference between Luxator and elevator?

Luxators. The luxator is a sharp instrument with a less concave blade than an elevator (Fig. 13.11B–C). It is used to cut or sever Sharpey fibers within the periodontal ligament and loosen the tooth prior to extraction.
