Hu-Friedy: new instruments for orthodontics

Rotterdam, 8 July 2014 ľ Aesthetic alternatives to conventional braces are proving to be very popular. With this in mind, leading dental equipment manufacturer Hu-Friedy is unveiling two new ranges of instruments for lingual orthodontics and adjustment of clear aligners at the annual DGKFO conference in Munich. To mark the market launch, Hu-Friedy is offering attractive discounts for these and other orthodontic products.

In lingual orthodontics, brackets are secured to the inside of teeth where they cannot be seen. This method, however, places big demands on both clinician and equipment because the fine adjustments required are complicated and time-consuming. With the Ortho Lingual Collection, Hu-Friedy has now developed a new range of instruments to simplify and speed up this procedure. The product range includes cutters, forceps and ligature instruments. All have been designed for optimal intraoral access, with finer tips and wider angles than usual. Visibility in the oral cavity is much improved as a result. The cutters and forceps were also provided with extra-long handles to improve comfort levels for user and patient.

With the Clear Collection, Hu-Friedy is delivering further innovation in the field of orthodontics and setting new standards in the process: the four different forceps make it easier to customise and optimise clear aligners. They allow pinpoint modifications without applying any heat and facilitate an effective increase or reduction in corrective forces. All instruments can be sterilised and autoclaved.
