Effective preventive care is critical to the long-term success of dental implants. Due to the increasing acceptance of implants, dental hygienists need to know how to best provide care for peri-implant tissues using the appropriate instruments available. It’s extremely important that the scalers and curettes which a dental hygienist selects to use around implants and abutments must not cause any damage or harm.
The instruments must be clinically effective in the removal of biofilm and calculus formation without the possibility of gouging or causing surface distruption. Unlike the plastic and graphite implant scalers and curettes that are bulky, dull and provide limited success of debridement, the Athena Titanium implant line features medical grade titanium, which is the same grade of Titanium alloy as the implant and abutment. These instruments are durable, precise, have sharp cutting edges and are available in many different styles (Universal, Gracey’s, Sickles). There are no sterilization limitations, are colour coded for easy detection and are available in 7 popular patterns which are sold individually or in a kit:
Barnhart 5/6TI, Gracey 1/2TI, Gracey 11/12TI, Gracey 13/14TI, H6/H7TI, 204STI, COL 13/14TI Kit contains: COL 13/14TI, 204STI, GR 11/12TI, GR 13/14TI
Our sharpening stones were designed by a periodontist especially for dental use, with the following advantages:
- Non-loading - Metal particles do not become lodged on the surface.
- Synthetic - Provides a controlled and consistent grit.
- Autoclavable - Use chairside and then sterilize Edgemates along with your instruments.
- Time-saving Instruments can be sharpened quickly and efficiently.
When sharpening instruments with conventional stones, metal fragments tend to lodge in the small voids on the stone's surface. In time, the stone's surface becomes glassy smooth and therefore ineffective. Before the EDGEMATE™, oil had to be used to fill these voids.
By always using sharp instruments, you will:
- Save time - Scaling procedures can be done more efficiently.
- Improve quality - Root surfaces are left cleaner and smoother.
- Decrease fatigue - Less force is required for scaling and root planning.
- Increase safety - With more controlled force you decrease the possibility of slipping.
