DID YOU KNOW THAT BLACK LINE IS NOT ONLY FOR SURGICAL?
Due to the successful launch of the Surgical Black Line collection more than 6 years ago and to the recent extension of the same surgical line in terms of products featuring the Aluminum Titanium Nitride coating, when we talk about Black Line the first thought goes immediately to this category of products. Which is great, as it means that the features and benefits of this technology, applied to instruments used during a variety of surgical procedures, are well perceived, recognized and enjoyed by the clinicians. Nevertheless, something you might not know yet, is that you can experience and enjoy this great feature on an extended range of hands instruments across different product lines: restorative, diagnostic and endodontics portfolios have in fact black coated instruments as well. As an example, the new entry Calibra which is completing the WeRestore kit, or Dr. Ferraris kit are great examples within the restorative line, without mentioning the XTS line which was launched even before the Surgical Black Line, and which allows for exceptional non-stick placement of materials. Restorative, diagnostic and endodontic instruments make the Black Line Collection comprehensive
FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF THE BLACK LINE: • Optimal edge retention and enhanced lubricity. • Enriched contrast and visual acuity at the surgical site and underlying tissue. • Reduced light reflection. • Maximum comfort, reduced hand fatigue and increased control. • Optimal strength and corrosion resistance.
ENDODONTIC The sensitive nature of endodontic procedures necessitates instruments with exceptional response, integrity and durability to accommodate a wide variety of endodontic procedures — from routine root canals to complex microsurgery.
The black rubber dam clamps, pluggers, spreaders, excavators and explorers are instead examples of Black Line technology applied to endodontic line, while the recently launched high definition black mirror and mirror handle are the new entries within the diagnostic line. It is time to
The HD Black Mirror represents the cherry on top of a now more comprehensive Black Line portfolio. We like the idea of having it in the middle of our Black Line, as its versatility allow clinicians to add it to a variety of clinical setups. DIAGNOSTIC

RESTORE AS YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN OR DONE BEFORE RESTORATIVE LINE
The Adhesthetics Theca kit is comprised of four unique instruments designed by Dr. Federico Ferraris in collaboration with Hu-Friedy. It is an independent set of instruments conceived to cover the main variety of clinical phases in direct and indirect restorative dentistry in order to help clinicians to achieve predictable results and clinical excellence. The Main Shaper, the Fine Shaper, the 3D Shaper and the Direct Caliper are all made with XTS technology, a dark Aluminum Titanium Nitride (AlTiN) coating that offers superb contrast in comparison to composite materials and tooth structure. The coating is also incredibly slick, resisting the adhesion of sticky composite materials. The smooth handle is not only ergonomic and lightweight, but each instrument has its own distinct set of colour cones, making instrument identification simple. The set of four instruments includes an IMS™ Cassette, which prevents the instruments from being damaged during transportation and sterilization protocols. FEDERICO FERRARIS ADHESTHETICS THECA KIT BY HU-FRIEDY
DO BETTER THAN YESTERDAY Incorporating these techniques into everyday procedures allows for predicable results in direct and indirect restorative dentistry. Constantly challenging yourself and continuously making personal improvements is the personal motto of Federico Ferraris. .

The Hu-Friedy 3SSENTIAL KIT by Werestore.it is a straightforward restorative kit, with just 3 essential instruments at once: Anterior, Posterior and Spatula, from the Hu-Friedy Black Line Collection. The three instruments are synergic and interchangeable and the word “Essential” refers to the easiness of all restorative procedures focused on the essential steps to create high esthetic composite restorations while using this kit. The revolutionary concept of “Plug&Sculpt” of the Posterior is very simple: one tip is used to plug the composite into the cavity and the other one can sculpt composite in additive and subtractive modelling techniques. The Anterior, instead, is called by the doctors “solid brush” since it models and spreads the composite very easily, just like a brush.

CALIBRA ™ COMPOSITE INSTRUMENT
HOW CALIBRA ™ IN POINT WORKS
HOW CALIBRA ™ OUT POINT WORKS
KOL CORNER Instruments made in collaboration with Dr. Gaetano Paolone and Dr. Salvatore Scolavino , Opinion leaders Hu-Friedy.
Calibra™ Composite Instrument consists of two terminals: “IN” which defines the dentinal skeleton. “OUT” which allows to verify the thickness and shape of the last layer without excess. This instrument is a caliper to check the thickness (a practical alternative to the sagittal silicone index) and a modelling tool for the last layer.
CALIBRA ™ COMPOSITE INSTRUMENT
FOR CALIBRATED RESTORATIONS Calibra™ Composite Instrument is an XTS (AlTiN) coated composite instrument which helps to provide the proper anatomical curvature to the dentin material layer of a restoration and leaves the ideal space for the final layer of enamel material * . The Calibra™ Composite Instrument “IN” point is used to define the dentinal skeleton, while the Calibra™ Composite Instrument “OUT” point helps to reduce the chances of excess composite material being placed during the final layer of the restoration. Calibra™ Composite Instrument acts as a guide , helping to prevent over-contouring at the preparation margin while assisting in reducing excess composite thickness build up as well as modeling the final layer of composite material.
A WIDE LINE OF XTS ™ COMPOSITE INSTRUMENTS
Advanced technology and innovative design have enabled Hu-Friedy to produce a superior instrument: XTS™ COMPOSITE INSTRUMENTS. XTS™ Instruments allow for exceptional non-stick placement of composite materials without discoloring the restoration. Aluminum Titanium Nitride (AlTiN) coating creates an extremely hard, smooth surface that resists scratching and sticking. The large, lightweight handle design is easy for clean-up while providing maximum comfort and control.

THE NEXT FRONTIER OF ISOLATION DRESSES IN BLACK ENDODONTIC LINE
WHAT DOES BLACK COATING GIVE TO AN ISOLATION AND RESTORATION TREATMENT? As we have shared also through our recent “Worried About Aerosol?” brochure, a perfect isolation provides a dry, clean field to work within, improves visibility and decreases the risk of patient aspiration. Having highlighted this, someone might simply say that everything starts from the choice of the right rubber dam clamp, of the needed further accessories and of the right instruments. At the end of the day, a rubber dam clamp is just a clamp… or not exactly? We have already read about the main and precious features of the Aluminum Titanium Nitride and about the benefits brought to the daily practice, but probably not everybody knows that you can now enjoy the benefits of the black coating also on the Hu-Friedy clamps, bringing a significant advantage to your daily practice. Just to summarize them, behind the dark coating that allows for improved intraoral contrast and visual acuity – and whose matte finish for decreased light reflection and glare - there is a Satin Steel™ which resists corrosion while aiding in flexibility and memory at the same time. The combination of these features represents the significant advantage of choosing a black line clamp.

BLACK LINE RUBBER DAM CLAMPS
Hu-Friedy rubber dam clamps are made in the USA from proprietary Satin Steel for corrosion resistance, superior strength, and a fine balance between flexibility and memory. The black matte finish on all 48 styles absorbs and dissipates light instead of reflecting it back, so you can experience a comfortable field of vision that is easier on the eyes to help you perform at your best.

TIPS & TRICKS IN DIGITAL:
PROVEN TO REDUCE GLARE UP TO 80% **
A very simple “digital dentistry” issue: when dealing with intraoral scans in the posterior areas, it is often necessary to retract the tongue. Unfortunately our usual retractor, the dental mirror, has a metal reflective back surface, which is not ideal for light reflection; scanning may be interrupted or get distorted. By using Hu-Friedy’s new HD Black Line Mirror I definitely solved the light reflection issues. Dr. Carlo Poggio
See your patients - not your instruments. Glare interferes with visibility. Reducing this disruption to your visibility allows you to see more detail and offer more accurate patient care. HD Black Line Mirrors are engineered to optimize clinical outcomes by delivering superior visibility throughout any dental procedure. The reduced glare properties of the Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating and clarity of the HD mirror glass facilitates quicker and more accurate visibility intraorally.

DIAMOND LIKE CARBON (DLC) COATING The durable black matte coating reduces the glare compared to a standard metal mirror head and handle. This helps to reduce strain and fatigue as the user does not need to adapt their viewing position due to unwanted shine.
ENHANCED CONTRAST & VISUAL ACUITY The black color of the coating creates a distinct contrast between the instrument, the tooth and/or the surrounding tissue allowing for easy identification intraorally *** . ***When comparing the Hu-Friedy DLC coated mirror head and handle to the Hu-Friedy non-coated stainless-steel mirror head and handle.
ERGONOMIC HANDLE The large diameter handle increases control, provides maximum comfort and reduces hand fatigue, creating an ergonomically friendly handle option.
