    Top 5 product test drives of 2017

    Dr. Flucke breaks down the products that blew him away this year.



    Bien-Air TORNADO Line

    Bien-Air has developed a reputation in the industry of high-quality, precise, Swiss-made products. With a reputation like that, it’s easy to see why many doctors are excited about this new line of air-driven handpieces.

    The TORNADO comes in two types. The standard TORNADO has Bien-Air’s SteadyTorque technology and delivers 30 watts of power. That means procedures can be accomplished more quickly, while fine adjustments can be made without the handpiece stalling. In addition to the power, the unit also features the Accu-Spray Quattro Mix outlet spray system as well as the Accu-Chuck PreciPlus vibration-canceling bur retention system. These two features help reduce the turbine’s noise to a quiet 55 dBA.

    For those requiring greater visibility, there is the TORNADOS model. This handpiece has a compact head for those clinical situations that need better visualization of the field or for patients who have a limited opening.

    While the turbine/head is smaller, this model still delivers a hefty 24 watts of power. 

    Wrapping up

    So, there they are. The Top 5 Test Drives for 2017. I continue to be impressed with the strides our profession is making in improving the things we need to improve the lives of our patients. Needless to say, I’m bullish on what I will get to test in 2018!
