October 22, 2019 (Chicago) - Hu-Friedy, the global leader in dental instrument manufacturing and infection prevention solutions, announced the launch of Streamline® PLUS ultrasonic inserts, the newest addition to the popular Streamline® portfolio of inserts, which includes the original Streamline Classic and Streamline Direct Flow® ultrasonic inserts. Streamline PLUS inserts feature the ergonomic handle design of Hu-Friedy’s top selling Swivel inserts minus the swivel functionality – allowing clinicians to choose the Hu-Friedy insert that works best with their equipment without sacrificing comfort.
“Ultrasonic scaling is an integral treatment modality for periodontal therapy,” said Jennifer Naylor, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Hu-Friedy. “As different styles of magnetostrictive devices are available, we set out to create an insert that not only lives up to Hu-Friedy’s reputation for superior quality and attention to ergonomic detail, but also provides maximum flexibility for clinicians to continue working with their preferred device.”
The new Streamline PLUS inserts advance effective calculus removal and hard debris removal with a focus on comfort and efficiency. With a uniform, wide diameter handle, the inserts are designed to reduce finger pinching and hand fatigue while allowing ease of movement when shifting grip location. Additionally, a textured silicone grip allows for a secure grasp. Streamline PLUS inserts also offer color-coding for easy at-a-glance tip identification, while a natural-color, tapered cone positioned between the grip and shank provides an unobstructed view of the treatment site.
Streamline PLUS inserts are available in seven popular tip designs, so clinicians can select the optimal tip for thorough cleaning during prophylaxis, periodontal therapy, and other non-surgical periodontal procedures. Direct flow water delivery, preferred by clinicians, provides targeted lavage with reduced excess spray. Additionally, a special blend of stainless steel maximizes reliability, tip life, and corrosion resistance, and allows for the highest level of ultrasonic scaling efficiency for superior clinical experiences.
Streamline PLUS inserts are immediately available for sale in North America from authorized Hu-Friedy representatives or dental distributors.
