Correct sharpening of nonsurgical periodontal instruments is essential for effective prophylaxis. Incorrect sharpening can modify the instrument blade and jeopardize safe treatment, and continued use of a dull instrument can lead to inadequate treatment, partial removal of calculus deposits, and compromised healing. This book simplifies key concepts to ensure restoration of the fine cutting edge as well as maintenance of the original design of the blade.
