Add Efficiency
to Your Practice

This hybrid instrument combines the sharp, working-edge of the Periotome and the strength of the Luxating Elevator.

CHOOSE YOUR FINISH

The Proximator is available in two finishes. The AetranoxTM edition features an aluminum titanium nitride coating that is scratch-resistant, non-reflective, and maintains its sharp edge three to five times longer than an instrument without coating. Our Stainless Steel edition is durable and not easily damaged by chemicals and heat, unlike chrome-plated metals.

THE RIGHT DESIGN

Proximators are available to two different and distinct tips: The Straight Tips are ideal for anterior teeth and where access to tighter interproximal spaces are required, whereas the Spade tips are ideal for creating purchase points and gaining access to root tips.
