All dentronix pliers are manufactured from premium USA-made box-jointed plier blanks. Compared to the scissors-style lap joint, this encapsulated design offers tremendous advantages in increased bearing surfaces and contact areas for maintaining tip alignment.
The standard finish on dentronix pliers is high gloss. This highly polished surface provides the best resistance to corrosion, staining, and discoloration that is available to the orthodontic professional. We believe that for a premium plier, it is the only sensible finish.
