When it’s time to purchase orthodontic pliers, we recommend that you exercise caution. Precision Plier Service recommends that you only consider orthodontic pliers from brand names.
Don’t be enticed by cheap imitations commonly offered online and throughout orthodontic meeting exhibit hall. Carefully look at the orthodontic pliers fit and finish, especially between the jaws and around the hinge and tips. The gaps should be tight and the finish should be smooth.
Test the orthodontic wire cutters, actually cut wire that the orthodontic instrument was designed to cut. For example, a distal end cutter from a quality orthodontic instrument manufacturer will cut clean and hold the wire firmly in place.
Poor quality orthodontic instruments on the other hand will do just the opposite. Never purchase an orthodontic plier without testing it first and don’t be afraid to test more than one plier on display. When you invest in quality orthodontic pliers you will realize many benefits including a longer useful life, improved control, efficiency, and patient comfort.
