Dental instruments of the highest quality

This is American Eagle Instrument







Our history began in 1948 with the start of American Dental Manufacturing, a family-founded dental hand instrument company that made its mark by providing high quality, durable instruments to the dental profession. Through hard work, determination, and Montana pride, the company became a well-known and respected manufacturer within the dental industry. The company grew to about 75 employees, many of whom forged careers to become some of the dental industry’s best journeymen instrument makers and sharpeners. American Dental was “the” quality dental instrument company.

In 1989, a competitor purchased American Dental Manufacturing and subsequently closed its doors in 1990. Rather than follow the buy-out company, a small group of tenacious and persevering crafts people joined forces in 1992 to form American Eagle Instruments. With engineering experience, unequalled skill, a goal to produce the highest quality dental instruments, and a “lead-not-follow” philosophy, American Eagle Instruments became reality.

Today, American Eagle Instruments has evolved to become the second largest manufacturer of dental hand instruments in North America and is part of the Young Innovations family of brands. Based in Missoula, Montana, and employing approximately 70 crafts people, we pride ourselves on providing the world’s finest quality dental hand instruments. Our focus remains on progressive, innovative dental products which allow the practitioner more efficient processes with added ergonomic comfort.

AEI offers comprehensive lines of dental products designed for the forward-thinking dental professional. Our product lines include diagnostic, curettes, scalers, titanium implant instruments, composites, restorative, and cone socket instruments. Additionally, American Eagle provides associated dental products which include instrument cassettes for an efficient and hygienic reprocessing and storage of your high-quality dental instruments. As well as sharpening systems for the correct sharpening of scalers and curettes.

Double Gracey™

AEI’s latest innovation is the unique Double Gracey™ instruments. The Double Gracey instruments are two instruments combined in one. The face of Double Graceys is raised, creating two slightly sloped faces, approximately 110 degrees, measured from the terminal (lower) shank. This allows the clinician to follow the Gracey technique, but with the economy of using universal curettes. The development of the Double Gracey™ range was only possible because of the XP Technology®, since the surface engineered working ends of Double Graceys would quickly lose their original form by regular sharpening.

XP Technology®

American Eagle Instruments also offers state-of-the-art surface engineering technology, featuring the XP line of instruments. Our XP Technology® instruments are fabricated using a patented surface engineering process that results in razor-sharp edges that start sharp and stay sharp longer than any carbon or stainless-steel instruments available. XP Technology® reflects the latest innovation in dental hand instruments – providing you with instruments that require NO SHARPENING!

Talon Tough™

For all clinicians who prefer to sharpen their scaler and curettes, we offer a comprehensive product portfolio of Talon Tough™ instruments with stainless steel working ends.

From product development to manufacturing, AEI employee-owners take extreme pride in their craftsmanship abilities. The AEI team possesses years of hands-on experience in the development and fabrication of dental instruments. We manufacture the highest quality instruments and hold ourselves to the highest standards. American Eagle Instruments offers our customers state-of-the-art dental products while still being progressive with the latest trends and requirements within the industry.
