Here’s a little bit about this product and why it’s SO convenient. I’m telling you, when we heard about this awesome product, we couldn’t help but think to ourselves – now why didn’t we think of that?! It’s necessary for a millennial RDH and we’re so excited to share more about it:
Pura Dental Products developed the Freehand Ring, an autoclavable multi-use ring worn during dental procedures. The ring contains two separate disposable inserts. The first is a foam insert that provides a safe and reliable surface to wipe excess debris collected during instrumentation from the tips of your instruments. The second is a dual well insert (2 compartments) which conveniently holds materials such as fluorides, polishing pastes, desensitizing solutions any type of pastes, liquids or gels applied into the oral cavity.
With the day-to-day busyness of a hygienist and our fast pace career, we’re always looking for ways to make our work more efficient! The Free Hand Ring is the perfect way that we, as hygienist, can work SMARTER not HARDER; something we’re always aiming to do!
Here’s a bit more information on the company, their mission, and how The Free Hand Ring came about:
The Freehand Ring was developed by Alisha and Jeremy Luman. Alisha, a dental hygienist, realized a need for a more efficient, safe and time-saving alternative to the traditional way of cleaning debris from instrument tips during instrumentation. This spawned the original design which included the foam insert only. Realizing their original concept could be taken even further, they researched designs in which the Freehand Ring could also hold substances like pastes, liquids and gels that are to be applied into the oral cavity, and they arrived at the Dual Well concept. After multiple trial-and-error processes, they fine-tuned the final product design and the Freehand Ring was born. Although the original product concept specifically had dental hygienists in mind, the Freehand Ring has enormous flexibility and can be utilized by any dental professional, especially when working alone.
