Bien Air Annonces Nova Electric Handpiece Will be Available for Ordering at Chicago MidWinter Meeting


I have used electric handpieces in my clinic for about 10-15 years now and I cannot bear the thought of ever being without them.  Because of my job in evaluating products for my peers, I approach things cautiously, letting products prove to me their value rather than expecting the value before I touch them.

So when I started with electrics, I went into it thinking there would not be much of a difference... and I cold not have been more wrong.  Within about 2 procedures, I understood electric headpieces were a total game changer for med  Before long I had invested in electrics in all of the 'doctor ops' in my practice and the air turbine headpieces began to gather dust.

Now I proud to announce to you that there is a new addition to the Bien Air family of electric handpieces.  The Nova system takes electrics to a new level.  I have been test driving them in my office since early December 2021 and I can tell you that if you are looking to upgrade your current electrics or are ready to install electrics in your practice, this handpiece should be on your short list to evaluate.  Here are some of the things that set it apart from the competition:

  • The Nova is the first handpiece to be constructed of stainless steel.  That means it is durable and will look like new no matter how many autoclave cycles it goes through.
  • It has the industry's ONLY sterilizable anti-retraction valve.  Almost every dental unit has these now, but the Nova has one inside the handpiece, which is an industry first.  That means added safety for your patients.
  • The chuck of the Nova is the industry's first PVD coated chuck.  PVD stands for "Physical Vapor Deposition" which is a manufacturing technique where a solid material is vaporized in a vacuum chamber and deposited onto a target material.  The PVD coated chuck extends its life by 30%.  That is an amazing extension of service life.
  • Cyclcro Gears - these are a material that are is used in the transmissions of high performance racing cars.  I find it incredible that the same type of metallurgy used in the transmission of Formula 1 cars is used in the transmission of a dental handpiece.  These smooth running gears help decrease vibration (which patients love) and doubles the service life of the handpiece.
  • Between the PVD chuck and the Cylcro gears, this handpiece spends much more time in the doctor's hand & a lot less time in the repair shop.
  • The smallest head with a 4 port water spray in dentistry.  In order to perform well, your must see well.  Having a handpiece that is small but has incredible torque and performance means your access to the field is better which means more efficient appointments with high quality preparations.
I truly feel that Bien Air has hit a home run with this product... and I don't say that lightly.  If you are looking to add to your electric armamentarium or if you are in the process of preparing to upgrade from air turbines to electric handpieces, be sure you to a close look at the new Nova.  I think you will be as impressed as I am.
