Hu-Friedy, a global leader in dental instrument manufacturing, today announced the launch of a new Orthodontic Slim Collection. This complete line of slim orthodontic instruments allows practitioners to deliver the ultimate in patient care, with eight instruments whose working ends are, on average, 10% - 50% more slim than other orthodontic instruments on the market today. The collection includes cutters, pliers, tweezers and a distal cinch back hand instrument, all featuring a slimmer working end.
Hu-Friedy developed the Slim Collection in response to specific requests from the orthodontic community for petite, slimmer working ends and more instrumentation options. These new, more slender instruments provide better intraoral adaptation and maneuverability. The clinician saves time and effort and, as a result, can spend more time on patient education and treatment planning. The patient benefits as well from an overall more relaxed and comfortable experience.
The Hu-Friedy Slim Collection, like all Hu-Friedy orthodontic instruments, is manufactured with the company’s exclusive Immunity Steel® which ensures long-lasting, precision performance. Additionally, unlike other orthodontic instruments on the market, Hu-Friedy orthodontic instruments are designed to withstand the rigors of steam sterilization while still maintaining their beauty and functionality.
Hu-Friedy CEO Ron Saslow says, “A child’s mouth is a small, dark environment for bonding, adjusting and removing orthodontic braces. The new Ortho Slim Collection is an example of Hu-Friedy innovation that offers even greater comfort for the patient and greater efficiency for the clinician. These instruments help the clinician perform at their best by helping them offer a higher level of service to their patients and more time for patient education.”
