Hu-Friedy Announces New Atlas Forceps Collection Featuring Innovative Internal Spring for Improved Precision, Control, and Performance


Tuesday, September 03, 2019

September 3, 2019 (Chicago) – Hu-Friedy, the global leader in dental instrument manufacturing and infection prevention solutions, today announced the release of its new, innovative line of Atlas forceps. Engineered with an internal hinge, Atlas forceps provide strength, control, and flexibility, which allow clinicians to effectively perform even the most difficult extractions with simplicity and precision.

Meticulously hand crafted from the finest grade surgical stainless steel, Atlas forceps feature an innovative internal spring that maintains the instrument in the open position, helping to reduce hand manipulation during surgery and enhancing comfort and control.

“Having extensively researched clinician pain points, we’re confident that the new Atlas forceps deliver specific and necessary improvements to help clinicians perform at their best,” said Christopher Ufnal, Business Development Manager. “We created the Atlas forceps to make it easier than ever to securely grasp any tooth without having to continually adjust the instrument to ensure it is in an open position when approaching an extraction site.”

Forceps are available in 14 designs in both standard and apical styles for an atraumatic extraction. The apical design helps provide a firm, secure grasp of the crown and root during surgery, with thin, sharp tapered beaks for ease in penetrating the PDL and apical progression.

In addition to the mechanical innovations that help improve clinical outcomes, Atlas forceps’ internal spring hinge ensures an open position during instrument reprocessing. Further, hinges are laser marked for quick identification when bagged during cleaning and sterilization.

Hu-Friedy has long been a leader in dental instrumentation, and the Atlas collection is yet another innovation to help clinicians perform at their best. With a streamlined design and improved functionality providing enhanced comfort and control, Atlas forceps are the right choice for any extraction needs.

Atlas forceps are immediately available for sale in the United States from authorized Hu-Friedy representatives or dental distributors. For more information on Atlas forceps, including how to order, dental professionals should contact their Hu-Friedy representative or visit
