The Laschal® Difference

LASCHAL® re-invented the dental instrument market by creating SONIC STEEL® instruments that reliably deliver great patient outcomes. These instruments are made of a lightweight alloy that delivers superior strength. LASCHAL® also invented other features (THUMLOK®, LATERAL FORCE™) that support the doctor and deliver for the patient. That is part of THE LASCHAL® DIFFERENCE and the videos and publications within will demonstrate why “If it’s vetted by LASCHAL®, it’s reliably a step above™”.

I have been using Laschal instruments for over a year now. In spite of their delicate appearance they are extremely durable and strong. The grip strength of the Castroviejo Needle Holders is very high for all needle sizes that I have used. They do a great job with PTFE sutures. I have also used them to stabilize flaps during releasing procedures. They hold tissue well without trauma to the soft tissue. The Tunnel Graft Forceps are very effective for tunneling procedures as well as pulling the graft material into position. I was recently performing a procedure to remove a failed implant that had partially migrated to the sinus cavity. I was able to get hold of the flat cover screw edge of the implant and the tissue holders were strong enough to grip and remove it. I highly recommend Laschal instruments.

After 43 years of periodontal treatment and having gone through many types of instruments to cut sutures and tissue I have found these scissors to be an absolute breakthrough. Removing sutures is often difficult when tissue proliferates and the ability of these scissors to cut at the very tip so efficiently has made post operative suture removal much easier for myself and my patients.

Over the last several months I have been using your precision suture scissors. The very sharp edges and firm shearing pressure results in very smooth, clean cuts in tissues and sure cuts through sutures. They hold up well and seem pretty impervious to damage unlike standard surgical scissors which often seem fragile.

I had a chance to use the new instruments. The performance is remarkable. Thus far I have used them for blepharoplasties and I am eager to use them for other procedures as well. The tissue forceps outperform the others I have used. The added slip resistance coupled with the total protection against iatrogenic damage to tissue is significant. My assistant likes the suture cutter. It enables her to perfectly trim sutures automatically, even when the line of sight is impaired.

As a Periodontist for almost 30 years, the choice of the quality of our instrumentation is of utmost importance. I have recently tried a new Castro needle holder by LASCHAL.

WHAT MAKES LASCHAL® INSTRUMENTS SPECIAL…

I appreciate the precision of the LASCHAL instruments, which is especially helpful in delicate surgical areas. The small size of the LASCHAL instruments makes tissue tearing a thing of the past. Manipulating small needles is much easier with LASCHAL forceps than with traditional needle forceps. I also love NOT getting the suture caught on the forceps hinge. Frustration be gone!

WHAT MAKES LASCHAL® INSTRUMENTS SPECIAL…

LASCHAL Instruments are smartly designed for a broad spectrum of procedures as a microscope dentist and specialist in endodontics; I have a kit of 10 instruments to support and make easy the complex procedures in endodontics for instrument removal, forceps to facilitate endodontic instrumentation in a patient with limitations to open the mouth, post removal, gutta-percha removal in endo retreatments and for apical surgery.
What I love about LASCHAL instruments is that they are of high quality, perfect to work with in high magnification, and delicate with small diameters that do not disturb the vision while working. At the same time, they are solid and lightweight, easy to grip, lock/unlock when you need it and handle which makes them perfect ergonomically for the hands of all dentists in every discipline.
The versatility and variety of instruments for any situation in dentistry make LASCHAL the top instrument manufacturer for dentists worldwide.

WHAT MAKES LASCHAL® INSTRUMENTS SPECIAL…

LASCHAL® instruments are the best I’ve used in both design as well as in their awesome manufacturing. Their ouchless suture scissors allow me to remove sutures without hurting patients, and the way they designed the scissor joints so they never grab a suture is exceptional. The unique locking release is so much simpler than Castro Viejo’s suture needle pliers and it only takes a quick move of my thumb to release. Top that off with the remarkable range of their pliers and it is easy choosing LASCHAL®.

What makes LASCHAL® Instruments Special…

As a practicing periodontist now in his 5th decade of practice, I am aware of the value of instrumentation in performing many of the challenging surgical procedures necessary to the profession. I have been using the LASCHAL® instruments for decades. The unique design makes suture removal and tissue control significantly more effective and less stressful. The instruments, which were designed by a dentist who understood the needs of his fellow practitioners, have filled a need that was missing from more traditional instrument makers without the intimate knowledge of our profession as LASCHAL® has demonstrated. All my surgical setups in my office use the LASCHAL® instruments. I highly recommend them to all fellow practitioners who want to make their procedures less stressful and more effective.
