Produced with state-of-the-art CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) manufacturing equipment, Masterline instruments boast unmatched consistency, strength, and durability. Multiple instruments are shaped simultaneously, so each has a consistent feel, weight, and size. This unmatched consistency is particularly important to clinicians who cycle several sets of instruments through the sterilization process every day. Unlike instruments produced with traditional equipment, Masterline instruments have uniquely radiused corners to eliminate potential stress points, significantly reducing the risk of fracture.

Special high grade stainless steel forgings maximize corrosion resistance and enhance durability, greatly increasing longevity and ensuring smooth, easy function. The precise computerized milling process allows unprecedented tolerances - up to four digits. This precision virtually eliminates binding, avoids excessive play in the joint, and preserves the integrity of the working surface. Masterline instruments are hand buffed to a smooth, mirror finish, making instrument cleanup easy and further improving corrosion resistance.

Masterline instruments are available in a wide variety of the most popular designs and configurations. Their unique qualities and features have established new standards for precision orthodontic instruments.

Key Features

Five Year Warranty

American Orthodontics warrants its instruments to be free of defects in material and workmanship for five years. Misuse, abuse, or failure to properly maintain or care for the instrument will void warranty. Cutting instruments should be reconditioned every 6-9 months. Warranty does not cover routine maintenance, sharpening, or reconditioning.

Tips & Tricks

Corroded instruments should never be sterilized with non-corroded instruments as the iron oxide on the corroded instrument can transfer to the non-corroded instrument, attaching itself permanently.
