Great. The best thing you can do is sharpen your instruments on a frequent, regular schedule in your office. Many people that regularly sharpen their instruments in the office, send them to Nordent® for Professional Sharpening once or twice per year to have the original blade surfaces and angles re-established. Whether you sharpen your XDURA or Relyant Instruments yourself or send them to Nordent for Free Professional Sharpening, you can still take advantage of the great Trade-In Offer.
You can trade in your XDURA or Relyant Instrument for a brand new one of the same pattern at a 40% discount at any time. Nordent will bill your office through your local dealer.
Your Trade In instrument comes with FREE, unlimited, professional sharpening.
When your Trade-In instrument is worn out, you can trade it in for a brand new instrument of the same pattern at the discounted Trade In price.
How many times any scaler or curette can be sharpened depends on many variables, including how many uses since the last sharpening, the severity of the office patient load, etc. In general, the more dull or rounded the cutting edge is, the more material the craftsmen will need to remove to achieve a sharp edge. With all conditions being average, your Relyant instruments should last you about 18 months before becoming too thin, and your XDURA instruments will last about 50% longer.
Only a XDURA or Relyant instrument can be traded in to receive the discounted price.
XDURA or Relyant instruments can be included in the Nordent New Practice Set Up Order Special.
Most offices that use the Relyant/XDURA System keep about 4 additional kits in reserve per hygienist, then send 4 or 5 kits per hygienist in for sharpening at a time. However, this is completely adjustable to the needs of each office. Keep 3 additional kits and send 3 or 4 kits for sharpening at a time. Keep 2 additional kits and send 2 or 3 kits for sharpening at a time. You decide what works best for you.
Nordent guarantees that your instruments are sharpened and shipped back to your office within 24 hours after receipt. Shipping time will depend on your location within the contiguous US.
