Ever Edge Instruments

Does anyone have any experience with the Ever Edge technology? I work for a corporate dental office and they won’t let me order these type. They told me that they don’t last and they lose their edge once sharpened. I thought you didn’t have to sharpen these ones?

They do still need to be sharpened, but tend to stay sharp longer. This means the instrument will last longer before it needs to be replaced. Definitely worth the extra money.

I use ever edge. They last about 3 months. Then need to sharpen and are easy to sharpen. Life of any instrument is usually 24 months. Mine last 3 months because I have 10-12 packs of instruments and see anywhere from 8-10 patients daily. My favorite is the blackjack.

I use ever edge at my office and they do get dull but then you sharpen them like any other instrument. My office did not want to get them originally because they are expensive.

I agree that they still need to be sharpened just don’t dull as quickly as some other instruments. I love the blackjack too and American eagle makes some similar to ever edge that aren’t as expensive but they claim you should never sharpen & replace every year.

I agree, blackjack is a must. They do stay sharp longer, but still need to be sharpened. They also come a little thinner than traditional scalers.

I’ve used Ever Edge for a long time! Every one is correct…they do keep their edge/sharpness longer, but not forever! You still have to sharpen then, sadly 😛 I heat the Montana Jack! I’ve never used a Black Jack…what’s that one for/like?

I have used Ever Edge and then discovered XP Technology from American Eagle. They are the ONLY true no sharpening instrument on the market. XP Technology is a patented surface engineering process; a very fancy scientific program that allows American Eagle to empregnate TiN into a stainless steel instrument and change the metallurgical composition of the instruments surface, giving it the properties of a much more durable material. In the instrument business the durability and longevity of instruments is based on the rockwell scale of hardness.
Standard dental instruments are manufactured using stainless and carbon steels, reaching a rockwell scale hardness between 58-63. The special characteristics of XP Technology achieve an incredible rockwell scale hardness of 89. This makes American Eagle instruments the most durable on the market. An analogy for you: We all know that when we paint something its on the surface. After this paint dries, I can come back and most likely pick it off with my finger nails, right? But if I am to stain this piece of wood, it is embedded into the surface, I can’t wash it off or even pick it off with my nails. I only use American Eagle XP Technology instruments!
