“Without agility, strength and power become ineffective. At Bien-Air, we approach our design and engineering problems from a holistic perspective to balance each point of strength — we don’t want to reduce the weight if it means we increase noise, and we don’t want to reduce the head size if it means you cannot use a standard-length bur,” notes Edgar Schönbächler, CEO of Bien-Air. “The Nova is our greatest achievement in making a handpiece that is smaller, quieter, and will last longer than any previous version. We were able to substantially reduce the size of the areas that come in contact with the fingertips of the user, without increasing vibration or reducing power. This makes the Nova a truly versatile tool — the ‘Swiss army knife’ of dental handpieces.”
Nova is designed to overcome the challenges posed by a traditional handpiece. Highlights include:
- Small Head Packed With Power — The Nova’s small head and slim handle enhance the dentist’s field of vision and allow easier access to the oral cavity. It is the smallest head to also feature the Accu-Spray Quattro Mix system, focusing four asymmetrical air/water sprays on the end of the bur with laser precision to ensure optimal irrigation in the working area. Connected to one of Bien-Air’s LED motors, a multi-strand optical glass conductor simulates daylight conditions, with reduced reflection for exceptional visibility.
- Unparalleled Ergonomics — In addition to being optimized for balance, the Nova’s stainless steel construction makes it the lightest handpiece in the Bien-Air portfolio. Its lightweight design improves the ergonomics and reduces wrist fatigue during day-to-day work. In addition, the perfectly optimized gears and monobloc handle reduce both vibration and sound levels.
- Improved Reliability — The use of stainless steel significantly reduces wear on the handpiece and makes it four times more resistant to shocks. The chuck system features a new PVD coating that makes the opening/closing system more reliable and extends the service life by 30% compared to a conventional handpiece. It also reduces the risk of jamming, allowing clinicians to perform procedures without interruptions. The Cylcro gears are designed to reduce friction and protect against wear. Thanks to the new design, the Nova offers double the service life of the previous generation handpieces.
- Enhanced Safety for Dentist and Patient — Risks of cross-contamination are reduced thanks to the non-return valve and the Sealed Head protection. The non-return valve considerably reduces the flow of fluids from the oral cavity back into the dental unit’s hoses. Alongside this, the protective Sealed Head mechanism reduces the aspiration of fluids into the instrument head. Additionally, the patented Cool Touch+ heat-arresting technology integrated in the ceramic push-button prevents the build-up of heat to reduce the risk of burns to patients.
“Without compromising performance, our goal was to push the limits and deliver the size and weight reduction demanded by the long hours kept by dental professionals,” says Marco Gallina, VP of innovation and marketing for Bien-Air. “This is why we pushed ourselves to create the Nova.”
