WHAT IS XP TECHNOLOGY?
NO MORE SHARPENING
XP Technology is a patented surface engineering process. This technology is a proprietary process in which the metallurgical composition of the instrument’s surface is enhanced, giving it the properties of a much more durable material. This process allows us to put a much sharper edge onto a thinner blade, eliminating the time-consuming and imperfect process of sharpening your instruments.
ROCKWELL HARDNESS – 89 Rc
Standard dental instruments are manufactured using stainless and carbon steels, reaching a Rockwell scale hardness of
between 58 and 63.
The special characteristics of XP Technology achieve an incredible Rockwell scale hardness of 89. This
makes our instruments the most durable instruments on the market.
OVER 100 TIMES GREATER WEAR RESISTANCE
Independent studies have shown XP Technology to be a revolutionary technical advancement in the dental industry. Dr. Phillip A. Watson from the University of Toronto was able to prove the phenomenal wearability of instruments manufactured with XP
Technology over the same instruments produced with the best available stainless steel.
How to properly use XP TECHNOLOGY ?
Holding the instrument
- Barely hold the instrument using a light, “exploratory scaling” touch.
- Shave through calculus using a few light strokes; do not fracture off calculus.
+ A lighter touch aids in ergonomic hand protection and minimizes the risk of wrist/hand problems
+ A lighter touch increases instrument longevity
+ Less likely to burnish calculus with an always-sharp blade
+ Saves time
+ Enhances patient comfort
+ Decreases scaling noise for auditory comfort
+ Less lateral pressure for scaling efficacy
+ XP instruments are designed for fine subgingival scaling and root planing. Avoid using them on margins and overhangs.
+ You don’t need to change the way you scale or root plane; simply use less force and a lighter grip.
+ Due to a thinner blade design, we do not recommendthat you re-sharpen your XP instruments.
+ With proper use and maintenance, you can expect your XP instruments to last as long as your stainless steel instruments, without needing to re-sharpen.

Eagle Lite® HANDLES
American Eagle has two patented handle designs—our EagleLite stainless and a medical grade EagleLite resin plastic, available in seven colors. These handles are extremely light and provide superior tactile feedback. The 3/8” diameter handle is designed with an aggressive knurl pattern, allowing a grip which helps reduce the onset of carpel tunnel.
Our Eagle Talon complements the Claw by combining two popular anterior tips, the J3 (Jacquette) and the N128, into one innovative instrument. This thinly-tipped sickle scaler is ideal for removing calculus and stains in all anterior interproximal areas.
