Nano-optimised XP Technology® is used in American Eagle Instruments scalers and curettes as well as Double Gracey™ curettes as it makes it possible to produce thinner instrument tips with sharper cutting edges.

Durability of XP instruments
Independent research has recognised XP Technology® as a revolutionary technological breakthrough in the dental industry. Dr. Phillip Watson from the University of Toronto was able to demonstrate the superior durability of the XP instruments compared to standard instruments.

This unique surface technology is also used in our composite instruments. In this case, the treatment of the working ends with XP Technology® helps to prevent composite from sticking to the instrument (non-stick XP Technology®)
Frequently asked questions about dental instruments with XP Technology®
We recommend sterilising them in our stainless steel GALAXIE cassettes. This protects the delicate blades of the instruments perfectly. Compared to plastic cassettes, the stainless steel cassettes ensure optimal drying.
XP Technology® instruments usually last as long as standard stainless steel instruments that are sharpened regularly. These instruments have to be replaced after a certain amount of wear has been caused by sharpening and the tip has become too thin or is no longer clinically correct. XP instruments do not require tedious and time-consuming sharpening during this period and maintain the correct geometry. After that, they must also be replaced. The well-known Quik-Tips™ offer a particularly economical option.
This varies greatly from practice to practice. With our sharpening cost calculator, you can calculate your individual savings potential in great detail.
With very few exceptions, all American Eagle scalers and curettes are also available with XP Technology®.
