Cryer Elevator Dental can dislodge a mandibular distal molar root after the coronal component of the septum bone has been extracted in order to reveal the mesial surface of the distal root. On the uncovered mesial root surface, the Cryer elevator tip is located to luxate the root in a distal-radial direction of least damaging. The Cryer Elevator Dental can be used where the tip can come into contact with a comparatively large, exposed area on the tooth and where a potentially usable rotational force can be produced. This method imparts forces to tooth particles that sever the periodontal ligament around tooth roots inside the socket and expand alveolar bone around tooth particles. Elevators are also used to impart luxation forces to tooth particles, which facilitate severing the periodontal ligament, which connects tooth particles with the surrounding alveolar bone. It is available in multiple variations.
