Ultradent Adds New Cordless Prophy Handpiece


Interestingly... this is the second post about an Ultradent product in as many days.  However, that's simply because the smart people in South Jordan, Utah have announced several new products.  This one is pretty interesting.  Cordless prophy handpieces are becoming more popular for a couple of reasons.  Number one, they don't have the tug and limitations of range that come with an air hose.  Number two, more and more hygiene is being done in the environment of nursing homes and care centers where access to air compressors is nonexistent.

I got a chance to have some hands-on time with the device yesterday and I liked it.  The unit is light, well balanced, and has plenty of battery life.  My test was to hold it against my fingernail to see if I could stall it, but all I ended up doing was warming up my fingernail!  The other part I was impressed with is that it charges through induction charging which means there are no metal contacts.  The constant disinfection that happens in the dental operatory means that metal contacts can quickly corrode due to the chemicals we use.  Eliminating those metal contacts was a smart idea.

I understand that the unit is retailing for $799.  If you are in the market for a cordless prophy handpiece, give the Ultrapro™ TX a try.  Here is what Ultradent has to say about this new device...

Ultradent Products, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, is announcing the addition of the Ultrapro™ Tx Cordless handpiece to its prestigious Ultrapro™ Tx prophylaxis family. Building on a legacy of providing innovative dental solutions, the Ultrapro ™ Tx Cordless handpiece combines the power and reliability of corded devices with the convenience and freedom of a cordless one. 

Designed to deliver comfort and efficiency, the Ultrapro Tx Cordless handpiece takes the strain out of prophy treatment with a lightweight and ergonomic structure, improving experience for both the clinician and patient. 

The Ultrapro™ Tx Cordless handpiece combines high performance with extreme mobility and accessibility—featuring a robust output of up to 4,000 RPMs for efficient stain removal, without compromising enamel safety. Its open design is compatible with most disposable prophy angles, including Ultrapro™ Tx disposable prophy angles, like the Ultrapro™ Tx SweepTM DPA. 

Further enhancing its operability, the Ultrapro™ Tx Cordless handpiece comes equipped with a Bluetooth foot pedal, enabling the same control as a corded handpiece with no learning curve. Clinicians can also appreciate the handpiece's endurance—a single wireless charge ensures all-day operation.  Ultradent's unwavering commitment to quality is embodied in the 2-year warranty accompanying the Ultrapro™ Tx Cordless handpiece, providing added assurance to dental professionals.
