Paragon Instruments

Paragon™ pliers are crafted from medical grade 440-barstock stainless steel, and then heat-treated, resulting in precision instruments that will last a lifetime.
Most orthodontic instruments in today's market are forged and then plated, which can cause chipping and peeling, shortening the serviceable life of the instrument.
