New Hu-Friedy Y-ME Instruments

Posted by dentalinsider on June 28, 2007

Hu-Friedy is proud to introduce two dental hygiene instruments designed to embody the spirit of dental hygiene, as well as our commitment to support Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization.


Y-ME Curette

The newest addition to the EverEdge Technology line of instruments, the Y-ME Curette features a distinctive anterior curette design with precise modifications to increase access and reach, perfect for challenging debridement needs of anterior teeth, furcations, line angles and pedodontic dentition.

With the 70 degree face of a Gracey, dual cutting blades of a universal curette, and contra angled shank design, the Y-ME Curette combines efficiency, function and the ability to make a difference.

And since it is part of the EverEdge line of instruments, the revolutionary stainless steel alloy is super-durable to stay sharper longer – 50% longer. That means less time sharpening and less hand fatigue. It also features our ergonomically designed EverEdge handle with unique diamond knurling and distinctive pink signature series grip, for increased comfort and easier identification.

Y-ME Ultrasonic Insert

In addition to the new Y-ME Curette, Hu-Friedy’s #100 Thin Swivel Direct Flow ultrasonic insert has been selected as the “Y-ME spokes-instrument” for the ultrasonic product line. This insert features the unique benefits of 360o rotation and now proudly displays the Y-ME ribbon logo.

The development of the Y-ME products was fueled by the desire to make an impact clinically and to touch the lives of others. Knowing that Y-ME is dedicated to empowering and educating people about breast cancer, Hu-Friedy found the opportunity to partner with the organization a perfect way to promote awareness, for breast cancer and overall health, through dental professionals.

For each Y-ME instrument sold, Hu-Friedy will make a corporate contribution to Y-ME, helping those touched by breast cancer – $1.00 for each Y-ME Curette sold and $2.00 for each Y-ME Ultrasonic Insert sold.
