Sharpen Free LM Sharp Diamond™ Instruments
LM Sharp Diamond™ periodontal instruments have a breakthrough, ultra-hard coating that keeps them razor sharp. Their soft silicone grips set the standard for comfort and tactile response.
Comfort and sensitivity
LM-Dental™ pioneered the use of premium-quality silicone to improve sensitivity and comfort. Our LM-ErgoSense® handles make instruments lighter and more responsive in your hands.
New micro coating
Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) technology bonds a diamond-like micro-coating to LM Sharp Diamond™ instruments. Our fine surgical steel takes a razor edge and the PVD coating protects that edge, giving you a more effective instrument for longer.
Exceptional hardness and durability
Hardness contributes to the durability of the instrument. LM Sharp Diamond™ reach hardness of over 63 on Rockwell scale.
Better instruments, better outcomes
Sharpen free LM Sharp Diamond™ instruments enable you to remove calculus without fracturing it. They’re ideal for all forms of depuration.
