Nordent Hygiene Instruments
Nordent Hygiene Instruments offer the highest quality and the best value in the industry. We use only the finest domestic high carbon surgical stainless steels and a proprietary cryogenic hardening and tempering process to assure long-lasting sharpness and durability. Each instrument is meticulously shaped and finished by expert craftsmen and 100% Made in the USA!
Single End Scalers Single end scalers are an excellent choice for pedodontic practices to remove deposits from supragingival surfaces and in orthodontic practices to remove cement. Single end scalers should be used when a double end instrument is not suitable or required. Nordent will produce any of our hygiene tip patterns in a single end configuration upon request.
Anterior Scalers Anterior Scalers are used to remove deposits from supragingival surfaces of anterior teeth. There are three basic design classifications for anterior scalers. They are Sickle Scalers (curved blade with a pointed tip), Jacquette Scalers (straight blade with a pointed tip) and Hoe Scalers (flat or rounded blades). In this section you will find many anterior scaler combinations and designs for every application.
Posterior Scalers Posterior Scalers are used to remove deposits from supragingival surfaces of posterior teeth. There are two basic design classifications for posterior scalers. They are Jacquette scalers (straight blade that tapers to a point) and sickle scalers (curved blade that tapers to a point). In this section you will find a wide assortment of standard and unique posterior scalers for every application.
Scalettes Nordent was the first instrument manufacturer to develop a series of hygiene instruments that combine the design characteristics of a scaler and a curette into one easier to use instrument. Using a Nordent Scalette will save time during the procedure, space on the tray and will reduce instrument replacement costs.
Curettes Barnhart - Barnhart curettes have universal blades that have sharp cutting edges on both sides of the blade and a rounded toe. The terminal shanks of Barnhart curettes are long and slender. Langer - Langer curettes have shank angles like Gracey curettes. The blades are universal so they have sharp cutting edges on both sides of the blade with a rounded toe and are set at a 90° angle to the terminal shank. Debridement - Debridement curettes are intended to be used in conjunction with an ultrasonic scaler to remove residual deposits and to smooth the root surface.
Diamond Furcation Files Diamond Coated Furcation Files have a thin profile for easy sub gingival access. The tips are made from a special spring tempered stainless steel
that resists breakage. The blades have a fine diamond coating on the inside curvature that is used to remove calculus and a smooth un-coated back to protect soft tissue. The cutting action of the diamond coating allows a multidirectional stroke pattern.
Implant Maintenance Until now clinicians have relied on a limited selection of instruments with thick plastic tips to clean implants. This is because regular scaler tips made of metals that are dissimilar to titanium (like stainless steel) could scratch the implant and possibly cause rejection. Our new series of ImplaMate scalers work safely with implants because they are made with the same material... solid titanium. Produced in our DuraLite® ColorRings™ handle, ImplaMate Implant Scalers will also enable your practice to identify and organize implant hygiene set-ups.
Gracey Curettes Nordent’s Gracey curettes are designed just like Dr. Gracey intended them to be. Using Nordent Gracey curettes will reduce tissue trauma, minimize lateral pressure and reduce the number of strokes required during a procedure.
