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.
