As one of the most commonly used pieces of equipment in a dental setting, handpieces have seen significant changes over the history of their lifetime. Such advances have made the lives of dental professionals easier, as these workhorses are relied upon daily for many different procedures. In particular, dentistry has recently seen a shift toward the increased use of electric handpieces1 for greater efficiency in the operatory.
So, how can clinicians utilize electric handpieces to make their practice more productive?
KaVo electric systems combine state-of-the-art handpieces, a short, lightweight motor and the ELECTROmatic control system to provide an optimal electric solution for a practice. Three distinct options in the ELECTROmatic series (ELECTROmatic, ELECTROmatic Plus, and ELECTROmatic Premium) offer flexibility in choosing the right system to fit one’s treatment needs.
“The ELECTROmatic offers the versatility for almost any treatment procedure, and it was a big help when doing multiple procedures on one patient,” said Matthew R. Miller, DDS, a private practitioner and consultant.
The ELECTROmatic motor system delivers constant speed and torque, allowing precise preparations at the defined speed. The speed is easily adjusted via the control system display for a wide range of indications.
“I really like the convenience the KaVo motor provides me to ‘change gears’ mid-procedure and go between restorative to endo to restorative easily. While performing root canals, the KaVo motor performed exactly how I would expect a standalone electric endo motor to perform,” Dr. Miller said.
The KaVo ELECTROmatic Premium, an all-in-one device for intuitive operation and integrated endo function, is available with one or two motors for easy prep and integrated endo function. The preprogrammed file systems make it easy to plan and customize endodontic sequences.
“I would defintely recommend ELECTROmatic to colleagues who are looking to improve their current motor setup and want to easily transition between restorative and endodontic therapies,” Miller added.
