Alegra 300 air high speeds

Tired of working with high speeds without light, risking patient injury by using single-port coolant and causing your patients hearing discomfort?

Simply connect the coupler and handpiece to any air tubing (four-hole, five-hole or six-pin), and you now have an LED-lit handpiece that reportedly has the same quality you’ve come to expect from any product bearing the A-dec/W&H brand.
