CHICAGO, Illinois--Hu-Friedy, a global leader in the manufacturing of dental instruments, has announced introduction of the Swivel XT Ultrasonic Insert.The insert is thinner and stronger so that can reach and remove heavy debris from interproximal and subgingival areas.To read more about Hu-Friedy, go to Hu-Friedy.Traditionally, thin inserts are recommended for light deposit removal; however, subgingival deposits are often tenacious and difficult to remove. Hu-Friedy’s Swivel XT is thin to clean subgingivally and interproximally, but also robust to efficiently and effectively remove moderate to heavy calculus at lower power settings. The Swivel XT features a large-diameter grip that maximizes clinician comfort and enhances tactile sensitivity. The instrument’s durability is enhanced through a proprietary blend of stainless steel.In a recent survey of clinicians who tried the Swivel XT, 91% rated it as excellent/good for the removal of moderate deposits, and 73% rated it excellent/good for the removal of heavy deposits. What’s more, 94% rated it excellent/good in terms of patient comfort, and 77% preferred the Swivel XT to competitive offerings.Ron Saslow, president and CEO of Hu-Friedy said, “It is important that clinicians have access to instrumentation that facilitates their ability to deliver optimal patient care and the Swivel XT is the latest in a long line of innovations that we are proud to bring to the dental professional.”For more information,call (800) HU-FRIEDY or visit comment on this product, go to
