Why pure titanium?
· This form of titanium is slightly softer than that used in the manufacture of implants.
· Plastic curettes do not provide a real cutting edge.
· A titanium coating is not sufficient to protect the implant
The sharpening of titanium curettes should be done with a stone specifically designed for this material (included in our kits). This sharpening stone is ideally suited to avoid burr formation during sharpening.
A dedicated stone should be used only on the titanium curettes since stones used to re-sharpened steel curettes are contaminated with steel particles that could damage or become imbedded in the titanium curettes.
