LX3 Alloy™ is the result of our endless dedication to quality and our promise to deliver the world’s best orthodontic instrument repair. Our exclusive LX3 Alloy™ will not tarnish like the inferior steels that are commonly used by our competitors. This results in a repair that lasts up to three times longer.


As a specialist in orthodontics you wouldn’t advise a patient to hire a general dentist to treat a specialized orthodontia case – so why would consider trusting a company that doesn’t specialize in orthodontic instrument repair to service your valuable orthodontic instruments? After all, just because someone has the ability to sharpen saw blades, toenail clippers, or beautician scissors doesn’t mean they’re qualified to repair orthodontic instruments.

Orthodontic instrument repair is a highly specialized process that should only be performed by experienced professionals that know precisely how an orthodontic instrument should perform and posses the expertise to deliver like new results that won’t compromise the integrity of your orthodontic instruments. Trust the orthodontic instrument repair specialists, trust Precision Plier Service.

Orthodontic Pliers Repair & Service


How long will it take to retip, sharpen and/or recondition my orthodontic pliers?

Most orders are completed 5-10 business days however this can fluctuate according to demand.

We can complete time-sensitive repair orders in as little as one day – please contact a Precision Plier Service rep in advance.

How often should I sharpen, retip or recondition my orthodontic instruments?

Most orthodontic instrument manufacturers recommend that you sharpen or recondition your orthodontic pliers and instruments every 6-9 months. This will ensure that your instruments remain in tip-top shape and perform the way they are intended to.

That said, if your orthodontic cutters and instruments are performing well go ahead and continue to use them. If you notice that your distal end cutters are no longer holding wire securely in place after cutting then it’s time to service your orthodontic instruments. If your pin & ligature cutters are no longer cutting precisely at the tip, crimping the wire, or you experience play or a wobble in the hinge then it’s time to service your orthodontic pliers.

What orthodontic instrument brands do you sharpen, retip and recondition?

The short answer is all of them. We work closely with most of the world’s top orthodontic instrument manufacturers. We’re very familiar with all orthodontic instrument manufacturers and their entire line including how they should look, feel and perform. We take great care to provide our customers with an orthodontic instrument service that delivers like new results that won’t compromise the integrity of your orthodontic instruments.
