Let customers speak for us
I took out my first tooth in 1973 and this is the best instrument I’ve ever used. I use Xpanders on almost every tooth I extract.
I've always wanted one of these things and finally just bought one. This one is a really high quality and doesn't leak. Much better for your wrist too.
These little curettes are great. These instruments are really high quality
High quality instruments. These are amazing forceps. I got both styles upper and lower. I highly recommend for any dentist with old style forceps to upgrade to these.
I am confident that all dentists who do extractions will find the Xpander a valuable addition to their practices. Doctors who place implants into extraction sites will immediately see how much of the socket is preserved while the tooth is easily extracted to make immediate implant placement likely in all areas of the mouth.
I love this thing. It’s faster and it works every time.
Great purchase for my dental office. What I like about this design is that these allow for better and easier access to deep, broken root tips.
Watch the video for how to use it - this is easy to use and feels comfortable in your hands with the longer handle now.
Great for broken root tips. Very high quality as well. Perfect for any office.
These things work GREAT!
Root tips didn't break off at all and easy to use.
This instrument just makes my extractions faster and more predictable
I have had a chance to use your Xpanders for about a month, and I have found them to be a remarkable aid in extracting teeth. I have practiced dentistry for over 40 years with my practice limited to the placement of implants by referral. The ability to predictably remove teeth (fractured, root canal treated, ankylosed etc.) and still allow for the immediate placement of an implant is a real plus to me and my patients. You know full well how many “gadgets” come across our desks in the course of a year, and a lot of them end up in a box somewhere. Congratulations on designing an instrument that is a “go to” instrument for extractions.
I have been using the Xpanders for a few years and they are awesome. They make extraction of broken-down teeth easy. They easily lift the roots out socket better than any other instruments. They are must have instruments if you do a lot of extractions. I highly highly recommended them.
These are the only forceps I use now. They really grab and hold - I love them!
The pencil-like feel of this instrument improves my tactile feel so I don’t keep hitting bone when I suture. The needle goes right where I want it to go.
This thing locks and really HOLDS! I rarely have to reposition my needle – it stays put.
The CastroV is a lot more reasonably priced, but the quality is still there. It’s just as good as the expensive brands.
