Heidelberg, January 30, 2019 – Periodontal instruments require regular manual or mechanical regrinding. This shortens their shelf life because they lose not only substance but also their original shape. Studies have shown that sharpening rarely maintains the factory-set angles, often reduces the functionality of the instruments or even makes them completely useless.

The ineffective, time-consuming and injurious procedure becomes superfluous with American Eagle’s XP® technology. A special alloy makes the working ends of scalers and curettes extremely hard and resistant, so they retain their high quality cutting edges and are always ready for use. Sharpening stones are history, time can be used more productively, and the practioner no longer tires prematurely from the strenuous use of blunted blades.

The periodontal therapy becomes also relaxed and stress-free for the patients, because calculus is no longer abrasively chipped away, but gently removed without effort. XP® instruments from American Eagle are also cost-effective because they outlast any standard product when used properly. For more information, visit
