Dental Curettes

22nd, October 2021

Having the best instruments to hand.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that the average dental practitioner uses hand instruments for around 2,000 hours each year.Dental curettes from J&S Davis

Little wonder then, that time and money are well spent on finding exactly the right tools for the job.

J&S Davis stocks a wide range of LM-Dental’s curettes because we share their vision of working with dental professionals, for dental professionals – ensuring that whatever the treatment, dentists and orthodontists have the best instruments to hand.

LM-Dental – pioneers of instrument ergonomics

No one mouth is the same as another, no one set of teeth is the same as another, and when it comes to treating your patients, LM-Dental recognises that dentists are different too.

Finland, in the 1980s, saw LM-Dental set about a radical new approach to developing handheld periodontal and surgical instruments. A lightweight, optimised shape, with an elastic surface and a thicker handle for comfort during long-term use, coupled with modern colour coding for quick identification in practice and unparalleled cutting edges.

Whilst these properties are commonplace today, at the time, they facilitated a radical move away from the frequent, low-level complaints that plagued practitioners in the past. Hand fatigue, hand and finger discomfort, repetitive strain injuries and even incidents of carpal tunnel syndrome have all been significantly reduced as a result of LM-Dental’s vision.

It’s all in the details

J&S Davis stock both the Gracey and universal curettes by LM-Dental, all designed for the removal of moderate to heavy calculus from the supra and subgingival surfaces of the teeth. As you’d expect, the universal curettes serve all tooth surfaces and regions of the mouth, whilst the Gracey curettes lend themselves to more specific tasks like scaling and root planing.

Some of our most popular LM-Dental curettes include the McCall, Langer and Goldman Fox. Still, when you accept that these cutting-edge periodontal curettes have the flexibility to suit each individual practitioner, you’d be wise to research the different handles and finishes available before making a final choice.

Not only does the range add a splash of bright contemporary colour to your practice, but the benefits also become apparent the more you get to grips with the product:

  • Optimised handpieces: for better control
  • Thicker handle: giving the practitioner enhanced grip for delicate or complex work
  • Contoured surface: for a comfortable, non-slip grip
  • Silicone surface: soft-touch and able to dampen equipment vibrations, with improved hygiene over uneven surface equivalents
  • Alloyed core: making it lightweight to handle and enhanced sensitivity from the metal-to-metal connection
  • Uncoated LM-DuraGradeMAX supersteel: tips that can be sharpened, high-wear resistance and corrosion-free
  • Coated sharpen-free: say goodbye to time spent sharpening with these ultra-hard, longer-lasting tips, with maximum wear resistance
