If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is — unless facts and first-person evaluations tell a different story.

Such is the case with XP Pro Thin™ periodontal line of instruments, recently awarded Best Product with a 4.9 out of 5.0 rating from Dental Product Shopper. 

Used by both hygienists and dentists for various procedures, this line by American Eagle Instruments, Inc. features thinner blades and lighter handles that provide greater tactile sensitivity and increase access into periodontal pockets.

According to the Missoula, Montana-based company, its Sharpen-Free Instruments™ (shown at top, Barnhart 5-6 Pro Thin™) set are unlike standard stainless or carbon instruments thanks to a patented process that hardens the stainless steel and encapsulates it with a diamond-like layer.

The result: an edge that will last months without sharpening. (The stroke test shows that XP Technology handles 10 times the strokes with only 1/10th the wear.)

Dentists and hygienists evaluating the Pro Thin line offered the following commentary to Dental Product Shopper after use:

• Instruments remove calculus well and easily adapt to tooth surfaces

• Wear-resistant blade reduces pressure needed and reduces hand fatigue

• Lighter handles enhance ergonomics

• Thin blade improves access to all areas of the oral cavity
