CHICAGO, Illinois--Hu-Friedy, a leader in the manufacture of dental instruments, launched a user-friendly magnetostrictive ultrasonic scaler at the 2010 California Dental Association meeting.

SWERV3, a compact scaler designed for the comfort of dental professionals and their patients, was endorsed by dental professionals who tested it at the Hu-Friedy booth at the meeting.

April Fifield, RDH, noticed the lightweight and well-balanced hand-piece, which features a “comfort zone” grip to reduce muscle strain. Fifield said she would switch from the power scaler she currently uses in her practice to the SWERV3 because “it is easy to use and offers a convenient design. It’s nice and light and places less stress on my wrist, arm, and hand.”

The SWERV3 also offers a smooth touchpad control panel and color-coded lighted displays, including a visual queue for identification of current settings. Fifield said she likes the digital technology and controls because “they eliminate any question about where anything is located.” For more, visit www.youtube.com/watch.

Another visitor to the Hu-Friedy booth, Sharon L. Weaver, RDH, also praised the scaler.

“I like the fact that it’s quieter, and if there’s less vibration for the patient, it will be more comfortable for them,” Weaver said.

Weaver said that its greater comfort means “it will be used more frequently, yielding an almost immediate return on investment.” For more, go to www.youtube.com/watch.
