LM-Dr Joy Balanced Kit
Dr. Joy Void-Holmes' recommended instrument choices for patients with moderate periodontal disease.
LM-SHARP DIAMOND - Sharpen-Free Perio
Effective essentials to comfortably and safely access the whole mouth while maximizing procedural efficiency.
With LM’s winning combination of advanced SharpDiamond sharpen-free tips and the industry’s most highly-rated ergonomic handles, expect the best. Cleaning appointments have never been more easy or pleasant for patients and clinicians alike.
Note from Dr. Joy: The instruments I have selected for my kits take into consideration ultrasonics. Standard of care is to treat all patients with ultrasonics (provided there are no contraindications), to remove the majority of deposits prior to instrumentation. The use of ultrasonics extends the life of sharpen-free instruments and promotes better treatment outcomes for patients. I recommend specific ultrasonic tips.*
*Recommended ultrasonic tips: Dentsply Slim 10/Parkell Burnett Tip
- 100% sharpen-free means effective calculus removal without the need to sharpen
- No more worrying about altered blade tips or angles
- Effortless, worry-free scaling
- Highest-rated ergonomic handle minimizes hand fatigue and potential musculoskeletal disorders
- Full control and improved tactile sensitivity
- Savings of time & money
- Improved productivity & clinical results
NEVER SHARPEN AGAIN. EVER.
The dark tips of SharpDiamond instruments look different because they are different. A diamond-like micromembrane enhances the already superior wear-resistance of LM's proprietary alloy base to produce completely 100% sharpen-free scalers and curettes.
In the final phase of precision-honing, LM’s ultra-modern PVD coating process follows the exact geometric planes of the instrument to ensure flawlessly sharp tips and the longest-wearing edges unmatched by anything else in the field.
Hardness contributes to the durability of the instrument. LM Sharp Diamond™ reach hardness of over 63 on Rockwell scale.

Because SharpDiamond instrument tips maintain factory edges and remain sharp for the duration of its lifespan, in addition to never sharpening, clinicians can stop worrying about all the issues related to sharpening, once and for all.
And with unparalleled wear-resistant edges that effortlessly shave off every last bit of calculus, less force is needed when scaling. The result is easier, more comfortable scaling for both the clinician and patient without compromising clinical results.
THE PINNACLE IN HANDLE EVOLUTION
At LM, ergonomics and innovation have been the guiding principles of design since the 1980's. The ErgoSense handle is a culmination of intense research and product development in close cooperation with dental clinicians and professionals. Feel the difference in your grip both while working and at the end of your day.
Lightweight and thicker contoured, ErgoSense handles are ergonomically designed to offer the most comfortable grip and exceptional control even in wet environments.
To ensure optimal rigidity and tactile feedback, LM’s proprietary metal core runs through from tip to tip. The durable elasticity of medical-grade silicone with colour-coded "at-a-glance" identification, has been tested to remain unchanged through 2,000 autoclave cycles.
