Sharp Diamond instruments are micro membrane coated instruments, which are completely sharpen free. The new coating is composed using modern Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) technology, making the instruments razor sharp, extremely hard, yet smooth and light.
LM-SharpJack scaler features long, thin blades for convenient interproximal access. The instrument shank is optimally angulated to universally adapt in anterior and posterior regions. Each tip is dual-edged and can be conveniently used for both mesial and distal, as well as buccal and lingual, surfaces.
- Sharpen free
- Universal scaler, supragingival, with long, thin dual-edged blades for easy and efficient interproximal access.
Purple Prophy & Perio – Healthy gums support a healthy brain
The purple handle color of the new LM-SharpJack scaler was carefully chosen to honor dental hygienists and preventive dentistry across the globe, as well as to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s disease. In recognition of the latest researches about the association between poor dental health and Alzheimer’s disease LM wanted to raise awareness of the condition and support this essential cause by donating 1 € per sold LM-SharpJack instrument to Alzheimer’s research at the end of year 2018. The LM-SharpJack Alzheimer’s campaign will continue in the U.S. market during 2019.
We want to thank all our customers for joining this good cause!

Opposites attract. This holds true with high-quality, periodontal instruments. Optimally they are razor sharp, extremely hard, yet smooth and light. A new micro membrane coating made using modern Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) technology enables LM to create Sharp Diamond instruments with the optimum combination of these features. Sharp Diamonds are completely sharpen free, tough but refined, offering unique benefits for you and your patient.
Sharpen free micro coating
You will enjoy full control and improved tactile sense, while easily shaving off calculus instead of fracturing it.
- Savings of time & money
- Long-lasting superior sharpness
- Highest rated ergonomics with sensational grip*
- Improved productivity & clinical results
The sharpen free instruments are especially suitable for clinicians who want ergonomic, high quality hand instruments that naturally feels good in the hand, but also want to minimize the time spent maintaining dental instruments. Instruments with Sharp Diamond coating can be used like normal instruments and are suitable for all forms of depuration.
Hardness contributes to the durability of the instrument. Sharp Diamond reach hardness of over 63 on Rockwell scale.
