The story behind the origination of the one-of-a-kind Air-Free handpiece series is interesting. The idea actually originated from you, the doctor. While attending many of the dental trade shows and exhibitions, we have had many orthodontists inquire about our surgical highspeeds. We took notice and started asking why an orthodontist is paying more money for a surgical handpiece — something designed specifically for oral surgery. We soon found out that the doctors were seeking a highspeed that did not expel any air onto the working site because the air caused increased sensitivity to the patient. While the 45° angle of the surgical handpiece was cumbersome to use, especially for debonding procedures, the doctors were still committed to providing the best dentistry they could and ensuring the most comfort for their patients.
This gave us an opportunity to provide a perfect solution for these dedicated practitioners. We designed a 90° highspeed that does not expel any air out the head of the handpiece — one better than the typical surgical handpiece that expels air from the rear headcap on the head of the unit. All the air is redirected and exited through the dedicated pilot holes in the rear of the handpiece. This gave birth to the Air-Free 90º and the rest of the Air-Free Series.
The Air-Free 90º not only reduces the sensitivity for the patient but also empowers the orthodontist with many other advantages. For instance, since there is no air to the procedure site during debonding, there is no longer any adhesive residue flying around the patient’s mouth creating the “powdered donut” effect. In addition to that, since the residue isn’t being displaced all over the patient’s mouth, the remaining adhesive on the surface turns to what looks like frost, which can act as an indicator that there is still adhesive that needs to be removed.
With all of the aforementioned advantages, along with 20 watts of power and a titanium coated body, this handpiece line can benefit all types of practices. Whether it be Orthodontics, Pediatrics, Periodontics, Oral Surgery, Endodontics, or even General Use — the Air-Free can be a great addition to your practice.
