HU-FRIEDY HAS INTRODUCED NEW TITANIUM IMPLANT SCALERS to help clinicians thoroughly and safely debride biofilm and calculus from the supra- and subgingival surfaces of dental implants.
The new Titanium Implant Scalers are available in the most common scaler variants, including the 204SD Sickle Scaler, featuring a contra-angle design for enhanced access to distal surfaces; the Langer 1/2 Curette, ideal for the mandibular posterior surfaces; and Hu-Friedy's 1/2, 11/12, and 13/14 Gracey Mini Five Scalers, which deftly respond to the challenge of deep and/or narrow pockets with their shorter, thinner blades and longer terminal shanks.
In addition to the versatile range of initial instrumentation, Hu-Friedy's Titanium Implant Scalers bring several new features to clinicians’ instrument trays. The working ends, constructed of the same titanium alloy as implants and abutments, are gentler on these delicate surfaces than stainless steel. The signature teal-colored anodized titanium working ends provide enhanced contrast to the abutment surfaces, while serving to differentiate the specialized instruments from the rest of the armamentarium. The instruments can also be resharpened, allowing for longer life and increased return on investment.
The new Titanium Implant Scalers are the latest addition to Hu-Friedy's growing implant maintenance portfolio. In 2010, the company introduced its Implacare unfilled resin implant scalers, which enable prosthetic surfaces to be scaled without scratching or alteration of the crowns or titanium abutments. Hu-Friedy also has a line of Colorvue probes with gentle, flexible resin tips for assessing dental implant patients.
"Hu-Friedy is committed to a constant state of dialogue with our customers and developing the products they tell us they need on their instrument trays," explained Hu-Friedy chairman and CEO Ron Saslow. "The new line of Titanium Implant Scalers fulfills one of those needs. We have demonstrated a long-term commitment to the care and maintenance of dental implants, as shown by our Implacare and Colorvue lines. These Titanium Implant Scalers are the latest product in support of our promise to help you perform at your best."
The new Titanium Implant Scalers complement the existing unfilled resin Implacare II instruments, which are designed for prosthetic crowns and light biofilm removal from titanium abutments and implants. Hu-Friedy's Titanium Implant Scalers are designed to safely and effectively remove calculus from titanium implant surfaces. The precision working ends ensure increased access to periodontal pockets with increased patient comfort, while the enhanced ergonomics and visibility help dental clinicians to perform at their best.
