New High-Tech Electric Handpiece Delivers Ease, Power and Control

The Midwest E joins DENTSPLY Midwest’s handpiece lineup.

Recent advancements in technology have made electric handpieces an increasingly popular choice among dentists across North America. Compared to traditional air-turbine instruments, electric handpieces provide the dentists with several benefits including constant power and torque and adjustable bur speeds for a broad range of applications. 

The Midwest E Electric Handpiece System is the latest electric handpiece system available on the market and includes the powerful Midwest E motor, which weighs only 59g and measures 1.25 inches – one of the smallest and lightest electric motors offered today. It is designed to deliver constant torque for smooth, quiet operation. It won’t stall under load, which can help shorten chairtime and procedural efficiency. Autoclavable for easy infaction control, the Midwest E motor features an “E” type attachment and spins up to 40,000 RPM.

At the heart of the system is an intuitive LCD touch-screen interface that lets users fine tune the speed, light and rotation to optimize performance for a variety of dental procedures – from caries removal to finishing and contouring to root canals. The faceplate is detachable for easy integration into delivery units.

Compact and lightweight to facilitate control and maneuvering, the Midwest E attachments are offered in high speed, low speed, endodontic and straight configurations. Color-coded for easy identification, the compact contra-angle attachments have a textured finish and ridges designed for an enhanced grip. All attachments feature high-quality components and are crafted of stainless steel to provide years of reliable service.

The Midwest E system also offers a field-replaceable hose, which helps avoid clinical delays due to service calls. Its stainless steel connector is compatible with most dental units and the ergonomically friendly 360-degree swivel feature increases operator comfort.

Whether it’s operating in the high-speed, low-speed or endo settings, the Midwest E cuts quickly and efficiently. A quick-disconnect feature makes it easy to change attachments. In endo mode, three torque-stop options are available so it is an important feature for offices that perform endo procedures regularly—or for practices that plan to in the future.

The Midwest E comes with a 3-year warranty on the system and a 2-year warranty on attachments (extended to 30 month when attachments are maintained with the Midwest Automate Maintenance Unit).
