Midwest Quiet-Air® High Speed Air Handpiece: A powerful solution from Dentsply Sirona

The ultimate integration of design, performance, and integrity.
Dentsply Sirona Midwest presents all that and more with a new product in its line: the Midwest Quiet-Air® High Speed Air Handpiece.

As a leader in both handpiece and bur manufacturing, Dentsply Sirona Midwest designed this non-fiber optic option with dynamic speed control.

A powerful value proposition.

Though it weighs in at under 50 grams overall, the Midwest Quiet-Air® is no lightweight when it comes to power. It achieves 30 watts, making it the most powerful value solution currently offered in the market.

Reduction of noise and easier bur changes (thanks to a 10 mm push button cap for chuck activation!) are just two of the many ways this innovative handpiece demonstrates its value.

Key features and benefits of the Midwest Quiet-Air® High Speed Air handpiece:

  • Computer balanced rotor and tuned airflow.
  • A smooth grip, designed for easy cleaning.
  • Ceramic bearings that reduce friction and enhance bearing performance.
  • Dynamic speed control that manages air flow to maintain cutting power.
  • Single-port water spray for powerful debris clearing and tooth cooling.

The Quiet-Air has a 6-month warranty and is eligible for the national Midwest handpiece promotions: Buy 3, Get 1 Free.

Connected Compressor: DentalEZ Aeras Leverages IoT Tech to Stop Downtime in its Tracks

Fix potential issues before they become a problem, plus eliminate multiple service visits with the compressor that continually monitors itself. *

Compressor trouble is the worst kind, because it can disable an entire office. Even with comprehensive preventive maintenance, compressors are subject to maintenance and wear just like every mechanical device. That’s where the Internet of Things (IoT) comes in: DentalEZ’s new Aeras compressor is a connected device that allows complete monitoring of critical parts and systems, as well as remote control of its operation.*

Prevent downtime by alerting to possible issues: When sensors actively monitoring key performance parameters notice unusual activity, the compressor alerts you so you can contact Benco Dental for service assistance or, in some cases, resolve the issue over the phone.*

Eliminate multiple service calls: Because the Aeras provides data to the cloud that is accessible from any web browser, your Benco Dental service tech will know what the problem is without a diagnostic visit. When it comes time for service or repair, your tech will arrive with exactly the parts needed in one visit.*

Operate the unit automatically and remotely: You can turn the compressor to on and standby, disable and enable motor heads, and enable/disable the schedule for turning on and off.*

Monitor your unit’s performance: Whether you use the web interface to access data on your PC or mobile device, or refer to the LCD display on the unit itself, you can check all sensor data including tank pressure, dew point, ambient temperature and runtime for equipment and motor heads.*

Multiple service visits are a thing of the past. Aeras actively monitors performance and provides data to the cloud that is accessible from any web browser, so your Benco Dental service tech will know the nature of any problem without a diagnostic visit.

Customize your dashboard: View all of your DentalEZ connected devices from your web browser and select exactly what you want to see so users can focus on the data that is most relevant to them. You can also easily access all maintenance reminders and records, alert history and historical performance data.*

Connect to your Aeras compressor through the web browser of your PC or mobile device and access data, service information, and even control key functions and programming, remotely.

Enjoy extended warranty coverage: When you enable Smart monitoring at the time of installation, DentalEZ will extend their industry-leading warranty by two full additional years, for a total of eight years of coverage. That’s substantial added peace of mind, from a name that’s legendary for dependability.

“The Aeras Compressor from Ramvac is as easy to install and situate as the established Osprey line of compressors, but with so much more capability.
Benco Dental has been connecting customers’ devices since introducing BencoNET in the 2000s, and more recently, our OneVisit® open CAD/CAM solutions. That technology experience, plus our long relationship with DentalEZ and 90 years of installing mechanical equipment, makes Benco the best source for modernizing your mechanical room—and making downtime practically a thing of the past.”

Nicole Gilligan, Senior Marketing Product Manager.

Three people holding Throat Scopes and smiling (Jennifer Holland, inventor, stands in the middle), with Edison Award Graphics surrounding them.

Perform dental exams clearly with Edison Award-winning Throat Scope®

The days of traditional oral examinations are over.
Throat Scope®, an innovative probing device manufactured by Holland Healthcare Inc., enables doctors to easily perform intraoral examinations of patients’ mouths.

The unpleasant experience of restraining a toddler, while a doctor used a tongue depressor and flashlight to pry open the young patient’s mouth, gave inventor Jennifer Holland (above, center) her lightbulb moment.

The 2017 Silver Edison Award-winning product provides a light source located inside the mouth to allow medical professionals one free hand to conduct a fast, accurate and pleasant oral examination experience.

The device is completely sterile. Plastic depressors attach to the handle and are disposed after use. The depressors are clear, which allow for light to easily penetrate through the transparent material.

The strong luminescence can help professionals spot abnormalities that may have been missed when using wooden depressors and a dental flashlight during examinations. Light emitted from flashlights do not fully illuminate the mouth like Throat Scope® does.

Don’t just read about it, take a look at Throat Scope® in this video.

Video by Holland Healthcare Inc.

These Throat Scope® features save time and add ease to examinations:

* a handle with three powerful LED lights with an estimated five-year shelf life.
* a handle that can be used under any circumstance to illuminate dark or hard-to-see areas, for instance, during difficult dental procedures.
* less frequently charging than a cell phone, because the environmentally-friendly tool works continuously for 20 hours.

Throat Scope® offers convenience and numerous unique benefits at an affordable cost – driving dentistry forward through innovation. A starter pack is priced under $35 at Benco.com and includes the Throat Scope®, two blades and 50 single-use depressors.
