CHICAGO, Illinois--Hu-Friedy, a leader in dental instrument manufacturing, has announced launch of a new Orthodontic Slim Collection. This line of slim orthodontic instruments allows practitioners to deliver patient care with eight instruments whose working ends are--on average--10% to 50% more slim than other orthodontic instruments on the market today. The collection includes cutters, pliers, tweezers, and a distal cinch back hand instrument, 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 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.Hu-Friedy introduces stainless steel primary molar crownsThe Hu-Friedy Slim Collection is manufactured with the company’s Immunity Steel, which helps ensure long-lasting, performance. Additionally, Hu-Friedy orthodontic instruments are designed to withstand the rigors of steam sterilization while still maintaining beauty and functionality.Hu-Friedy CEO Ron Saslow said, “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.”For more information, call (800) HU-FRIEDY or visit www.hu-friedy.com.To comment on this product, go to community.pennwelldentalgroup.com/.
