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 Hygiene & 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!

Sharpen Free Sharp Diamond Instruments
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 LMErgoSense 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 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
Our PVD coating has a hardness of 63 on the Rockwell scale. This tough surface makes Sharp Diamond instruments resist wear 82% better than uncoated steel dental instruments.
Better instruments, better outcomes
Sharpen free Sharp Diamond instruments enable you to remove calculus without fracturing it. They’re ideal for all forms of depuration.
