Create perfect alignment. Precise adjustments for transformative smiles.

Overview

Hu-Friedy’s Clear Collection consists of innovative instruments designed to accent, individualize and optimize the biomechanics of the “invisible” aligner experience with NO heat required.

What doctors are saying

“I have tried some of the Hu-Friedy instruments you (Dr. Jay Bowman) said you had developed. Awesome! I was tired of trying to grind out elastic hooks and buttons. Great invention!”


Clear Collection - The "New" Crew

The Spot
678-804

  • The Spot creates a tiny rounded dimple for spot contacts to accent small individual tooth movements or added retention.
  • PRODUCT DETAILS
678-805

The Petite Punch
678-805

  • The Petite Punch cuts a 4.5mm half-moon cutout in an aligner for relief of the plastic around bonded buttons used for elastics.
  • PRODUCT DETAILS
678-807

The Mesial Wedge
678-807

  • The Mesial Wedge is used to produce a wedge-shaped indent in an aligner at the mesial portion of the facial and at the opposite line angle (distal lingual) for a specific tooth to create a rotational couple. Used to affect a Mesial rotation of Mandibular Right and Maxillary Left teeth. It can also be used to affect a Distal rotation of Mandibular Left and Maxillary Right teeth.

678-808

The Distal Wedge
678-808

  • The Distal Wedge is used to produce a wedge-shaped indent in an aligner at the distal portion of the facial and at the opposite line angle (mesial lingual) for a specific tooth to create a rotational couple. Used to affect a distal rotation of Mandibular Right and Maxillary Left teeth. It can also be used to affect a Mesial rotation of Mandibular Left and Maxillary Right teeth.

678-800

The Tear Drop™
678-800

Adds a reservoir at the gingival margin anywhere elastic hooks are required within the arch, holding the elastics in place as the aligner is seated, permitting easier manipulation of elastics by the patient.

678-801

The Vertical
678-801

Emphasizes over-correction of rotations by producing an indentation at the mesial or distal line angles on the facial and/or lingual of a specific tooth. As an option, a rotational couple can also be created using vertical indents on facial and lingual surfaces on opposing sides of a tooth. The Vertical can also be used to produce an indent to produce a mild “nudge” to enhance resolution of in-and-out discrepancies.

678-802

The Horizontal
678-802

The Horizontal: produces an indentation to accent individual root torque. It also enhances retention of either clear aligners or retainers by placing an indent into a tooth’s undercut or below a bonded attachment.

678-803

The Hole Punch
678-803

Creates 6.0mm half-moon cutouts for relief of clear aligners around bonded buttons used for elastics. It can also nip away plastic to provide soft tissue clearance to prevent aligner impingement of tissue.
