Save time and money with American Eagle

Heidelberg, June 23, 2020 – Finally every dental practice can easily determine, how much money is wasted on sharpening instruments: The required time per week and the hourly wage are entered on the website www.am-eagle.org/sharpening_calculator, the online tool then evaluates the expenses incurred each year.

In a second step, the financial benefits of switching to sharpen-free American Eagle XP instruments can be discovered. These scalers and curettes retain the shape and functionality throughout their lifetime and are always ready with original sharp cutting edges. The therapist can therefore noticeably reduce the physical effort and act more ergonomically. Thanks to XP Technology®, sharpening stones are history and time can now be used more productively.

The effort to resharpen the equipment is often underestimated, but the procedure requires considerable experience, patience and the proper technique. The instruments must be aligned and fixed, and a gage is needed to maintain the correct sharpening angle. To avoid facets and ensure a perfect working edge every detail must be checked with a magnifying glass.

Moreover, resharpened instruments along with substance also lose their ideal shape which is no longer comparable with the original design. This shortens the lifespan of the instruments, because it degrades their performance or they even become entirely useless and must be replaced.
