the Sharpening Stone product page on our website.
After sharpening your elevators and luxators it is good practice to also hone the blade
using our new sharpening cones to remove any protrusions or lips on the instrument.
Work the sharpening cone between the wings of the elevator in an upwards motion. The
tapered cone caters for all sizes of luxators and elevators.

Instruments should be kept sharp and true to their original
design. Dental procedures are most effective when using sharp
instruments because they reduce fatigue, improve deposit
removal, save time and improve tactile sensitivity.
Repeated use of an instrument wears away minute particles
of metal from the blade causing the cutting edge to take on a
rounded shape resulting in a dull, ineffective blade.
When a blade is dull, the clinician loses the ability to ‘feel’ the
sharp edge ‘grabbing’ onto a surface. It may then seem that the
blade is ‘sliding’ over the surface or deposit which causes the
clinician to work harder to remove deposits. For best results,
instruments should be sharpened lightly after each use.
After each use, stones should be wiped with a clean cloth to
remove metal particles.
Alternate the areas used for sharpening to prevent ‘grooving’
in the stone.
