By following a simple 3 step process, you can maintain your edge easily and quickly:
Stop. Place the back of your instrument’s blade against the stop.
Rest. Lower the instrument until the terminal shank is resting against the bar.
Glide. Move your instrument in a gliding motion across the stone using light pressure.
Using the Gleason Guide to maintain your dental scalers, curettes, and Graceys is just that easy! By keeping your dental instruments at their best, you can reduce chair time and improve comfort for patients. Plus, a sharp instrument reduces the amount of pressure you need to apply when removing deposits, gives you more control over the instrument by reducing slipping, and improves your ability to detect calculus.
