    Product Review: How the Bien-Air Optima MX2 INT can improve the patient experience in your practice

    When did you start using this product?

    I have been using a Bien-Air Electric Motor for more than eight  years and the latest MX2 Pro for about 1.5 years

    How has it worked out for you so far?

    I use it routinely and it allows me to provide treatment faster and easier, making the patient experience better, quieter and more comfortable.

    How did you incorporate this product into your practice?

    The process is simple: buy it, have it installed and use it. If it stays in the box or on a shelf in a closet you will never use it. That said, it does cut differently and there is a small learning curve to using the electric handpiece versus the air-driven handpiece.

    This can be easily overcome if you practice on extracted teeth to get a “feel” for how smooth and fast it cuts in a contiguous motion as opposed to the “on/off or feathering” motion of an air-driven handpiece.

    What changes have you observed since integrating this product?

    I can operate faster without sacrificing safety or quality. Patients like that the common “drill noise” has been reduced.

    What are the product’s best features?

    One motor allows me to do various dental procedures from operative to hygiene to rotary endodontics to crown and bridge. All these various procedures can be customized, stored and preset on the unit as I need. I can digitally dial from 100 to 200,000 rpms.

    What are its biggest benefits?

    The instrument is lighter than others and ergonomically balanced to avoid fatigue with long procedures and/or repeated use.

    How have patients responded to this product?

    Patients like that it is quieter than a conventional air-driven handpiece and that it allows me to perform the procedure(s) in a faster and more efficient manner.

    Why you would recommend this handpiece to a colleague?

    I never hesitate to mention my Bien-Air electric handpiece to colleagues because I would find it difficult to practice without having one.

    My mantra in evaluating products, materials and equipment has always been: faster-easier- better (for the doctor and the ultimate end-user, the patient). The Bien-Air electric handpiece allows me to meet that mantra routinely in my practice.
