KRUUSE elevator, straight tip, 1 mm, stubby handle
This elevator has the same function as a regular dental elevator, but is thin and narrow and has a longer blade to facilitate removal of roots or bone fragments. Choosing the right size handle - a standard or a stubby (short) handle? It is a great advantage to have two different sizes of handles to choose between, when selecting your luxators/elevators. It is important to have full control over the instrument, otherwise it can slip andhurt the patient. If you can put the blunt end of the handle in your palm and almost reach the tip of the instrument with your index finger, then the dental instrument is the right size for your hand.
