Hu-Friedy, a manufacturer of dental instruments and products, today introduced Hu-Friedy Disposable Prophy Angles in both standard straight and contra angle styles.
The latest additions to the company’s line of preventive solutions, the Disposable Prophy Angles feature a precision-manufactured internal drive mechanism to reportedly ensure smooth performance with less vibration, heat and chatter. These qualities are intended to create a more comfortable polishing experience for both the clinician and patient.
The proprietary ergonomic grip increases the clinician’s rotational control and allows for a light, yet secure grasp to improve paste delivery and reduce hand fatigue. The premium cup with internal spiral design and smooth exterior provides superior paste delivery and greater interproximal reach while reducing splatter.
Available in soft and firm cup options, Hu-Friedy Disposable Prophy Angles are not made with natural rubber latex and are compatible with the most common low-speed handpieces. The contra angle style has a unique 15-degree angle bend mid-body to allow for a more comfortable neutral wrist position, providing an ergonomic advantage for both clinician and patient.
“Hu-Friedy has a long history of delivering the highest quality solutions that help dental hygienists achieve optimal clinical outcomes, and our Disposable Prophy Angles are the latest example of that,” said Ken Serota, president of Hu-Friedy. “Having a strong preventive treatment plan for patients is essential for a dental practice, and using prophy angles for stain removal and polishing are a staple within those plans. As a complete solutions provider, Hu-Friedy offers innovative products for every step of a preventive treatment plan to help practitioners perform at their best.”
The Disposable Prophy Angles are designed to improve clinical outcomes, reduce clinician stress and maximize patient acceptance. Visit www.hu-friedy.com/DPA for more information.
