Throughout years of breakthrough research and dedicated development, Ingels Engineering Inc. has come out with an instrument of superior quality and is now offering it to our valued customers.

INGELS INSTRUMENTS® are a revolutionary new line of orthodontic instruments patented and designed by Luis Ingels in order to address the sterilization issues facing us in the new millennium. This particular design is important because it does not use a center screw to hold the joint of the pliers together. This is typically where the risk of collecting infectious materials is the highest.

Instead, with this new approach, the two sides of the handles snap apart at the joint for complete sterilization on the inside. This assists in eliminating the concern that many doctors and patients alike have about the transmission of contagions from one patient to another. This new joint system assures complete sterilization because it exposes the areas where many viruses hide. Sterilization studies have been conducted and published by Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, California.

The inventor, Luis Ingels has more than 30 years of experience making instruments for the orthodontic industry and this is why he saw the need to make a superior instrument. Each of the INGELS INSTRUMENTS® ARE HAND CRAFTED TO THE FINEST STANDARDS. THESE INSTRUMENTS ARE MADE INDIVIDUALLY AND EXCLUSIVELY MANUFACTURED IN THE UNITED STATES.
This product is produced from 100% stainless steel. The quality of INGELS INSTRUMENTS® far exceeds the current standards in the industry including pliers that are produced from castings or forgings. There are no other instruments on the market like these. Your purchase of INGELS INSTRUMENTS® assures your office years of satisfaction.

Eventually in the design department, two new lines of instruments emerged. The ISK models and the IDK models. Luis Ingels continues to develop and improve upon current products. This patented joint system is being studied for medical, dental and surgical applications. Quality control issues are addressed and design modifications are implemented as further studies indicate. We work closely with engineers, doctors and support personnel to achieve the best products imagination can produce.

Thank you for visiting us in our booth in Las Vegas, Nevada and in Seattle, Washington for the Shows at the American Association of Orthodontists conventions.
