Hu-Friedy has announced today the addition of the 25K Swivel XT™ Ultrasonic Insert Line, a thinner, stronger insert that can reach and remove tenacious debris from interproximal and subgingival areas. The Swivel XT was originally introduced in December 2010, in a 30K version.Traditionally, thin inserts are recommended for light deposit removal. However, subgingival deposits are often times tenacious and very difficult to remove. Hu-Friedy's Swivel XT™ is thin enough to clean subgingivally and interproximally, but also robust enough to efficiently and effectively remove moderate to tenacious calculus at lower power settings. The Swivel XT™ features a large-diameter grip that maximizes clinician comfort and enhances tactile sensitivity, plus the instrument's durability is enhanced through a proprietary blend of stainless steel.
