KaVo Dental North America has introduced a new high-speed electric handpiece, the Comfortdrive 200 XDR. The unit's micromotor technology makes it lighter, more ergonomic, more precise, and quieter than previous models, the company said.

The unit, which operates at only 55 decibels (dB), weighs "approximately 40% less and is 15% shorter than market-leading electric options," according to the company. And the integrated motor reduces the distal area length after the pivot point in the doctor's hand.

KaVo also touted the Comfortdrive's no-bur-stall feature, as well as an integrated sterilizable motor that delivers 30 watts of power and "Plug-n-Prep" autocalibration technology. Once calibrated, the handpiece can achieve an airlike "feathering" effect between 30,000 revolutions per minute (rpm) and 200,000 rpm with the foot pedal, so doctors using air-driven handpieces can seamlessly transition to Comfortdrive with no learning curve, KaVo said.

The system will be available as an integrated option into the Pelton & Crane Spirit 3000 series of delivery units in 2010.
