I have been buying and using Medidenta handpieces and endo products for over 20 years. They are all awesome products! Its great purchasing from Al and his superb team at Medidenta, as they really know their products, understand the technology and most important are ready to listen and work with the Dentist and their team. After your first experience purchasing any product from Medidenta you will be so satisfied you will ask them why they don’t sell more items. I highly recommend Medidenta for all your handpieces, all handpiece repairs and especially all your endo needs.
I really missed the Endotec II thermal compaction device, until I received the Root Buddy. I love this thing! When I use the heat mode I get as much extra gutta-percha compaction as when I used the Endotec II, but when I use the vibratory mode I get even further down the canal and can significantly more material. The gutta percha just seems to flow and fill the tooth remarkably better. This is a far better system to others I have tried. Root Buddy is the system to use.
I bought three of the Medidenta Air Free handpieces for the occasional patient who takes an hour and a few carpules of lidocaine to remove their braces. Initially when I purchased the handpieces my staff and I were concerned at the heat we thought was being generated by the handpiece. Medidenta reached out to me after hearing about my concerns. Sent me the correct burs which I like better and heat problem is resolved. Thanks to Medidenta for the great customer service and great handpiece. My patients and I are grateful!
The foresight 45 surgical handpiece satisfies the requirement to not endanger patients by forcing air into the surgical field but at the same time is very doctor-friendly with its high torque, direct LED light, and ergonomic feel.
I first learned about Medidenta when I met Trent at a PCSO meeting. He introduced me to a great debonding kit option that they offer. The slow speed motor with contra angle pushbutton attachment is incredibly versatile, addressing just about all of our needs in an orthodontic office. The high torque motor delivers tremendous control while removing adhesive and performing IPR with virtually no vibration, reducing discomfort to the patient. The handpiece seems very well-built and comfortable to handle. I had purchased one kit at the meeting and loved it so much that I called Trent back one week later to order four more. Trent is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
The story behind this one-of-a-kind patent- pending Air-Free handpiece is very interesting. It actually originated from the needs of practicing orthodontists. As an exhibitor of many orthodontic conferences over the years, Medidenta had consistent inquiries about surgical handpieces. Medidenta soon found out that doctors were looking for a handpiece that did not blow air on the working site, which is a source of sensitivity. This sensitivity in traditional handpieces is especially true in orthodontics where the teeth are not anesthetized, have enlarged PDLs, and are more cold-air reactive with sensitivity caused by recent orthodontic tooth movement. Although I have used 45-degree angled surgical handpieces to reduce the cold air being expelled on the teeth, I found them very cumbersome. This was a great opportunity for someone to develop a better solution for my orthodontic needs. Finally, Medidenta came through and created a 90-degree handpiece that did NOT expel air from the head of the handpiece. Instead, the air is directed out of the rear of the handpiece away from the patient. Thus, the Air-Free 90 degree has quickly become the hottest item ever sold by Medidenta. While the main benefit is almost no sensitivity to the patient, another benefit is less adhesive flash powder being blown all over and around the patient because it can be suctioned away much more easily. It’s also important to note that the handpiece is built rock solid and generates an ultra-smooth high-speed polishing action. As a result, vibrations on the tooth surface are eliminated, making for a more comfortable experience when compared to generic handpieces. Significant timesaving has been seen during my braces removal appointments because of fewer pauses due to sensitivity issues. This 20-watt titanium-coated handpiece has benefits not only in orthodontics, but can also be applied for uses in pediatrics, periodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, and general dentistry.
The elite motors from Medidenta are the best slow speed handpieces I have ever used. I have practiced for 43 years and I have gone through a number of different brands
I am extremely impressed by the performance of the AirFree90 Handpieces. They are very light and comfortable, deliver amazing torque, and with no air hitting the tooth, are sensitivity free to the patients. My patients are a lot more comfortable and that makes my day.
With the excitement that their orthodontic treatment is complete, many patients dread the actual braces removal procedure. How can you make one simple change to revolutionize patients’ experience for braces removal? Don’t use a handpiece
that expels ice-cold air on their teeth! With traditional handpieces, this patient sensitivity is especially true in orthodontics, where the teeth are not anesthetized, have enlarged PDLs, and as a result, are more cold-air reactive with sensitivity from recent orthodontic tooth movement. Medidenta’s
90-degree handpiece does NOT expel air from the head of the handpiece. Instead, the air is directed out of the rear of the handpiece away from the patient. Thus, the Air-Free 90 degree has become my favorite handpiece ever. It’s also important to note that this powerful titanium-coated handpiece is built rock solid and generates an ultra-smooth high-speed polishing action. As a result, vibrations on the tooth surface are eliminated making for a more comfortable experience as compared to traditional handpieces. Here are some tips for using the Air-Free handpiece:
• When removing adhesive/cement, use a short stroking movement while lifting up the bur and guiding it across the area with adhesive. This allows the tooth to cool and is the single most important control factor to reduce any heat generated. Letting off the rheostat as you move from tooth to tooth is also very helpful.
• Avoid stone burs for complete removal of adhesive due to heat buildup.
• Less friction and heat is generated with carbide burs.
• Consider using fewer fluted carbide burs for the initial adhesive removal (e.g., 12 fluted) and then using a higher
fluted bur (e.g., 30 fluted carbide) gently across the upper anterior teeth as the last step to eliminate bur marks and to give high luster and shine.
• Know your bur design: Spiral flutes are designed to give a smoother finish and act as if they had more flutes. This tends to increase surface area/friction and generate a little more heat and remove adhesive a little more slowly. Straight fluted burs (compared to the same number of flutes in a spiral fluting design) will remove the adhesive more quickly because of how the flutes are spaced apart and result in less heat generation and time-savings, but they do not have as smooth as a finish.
• To further control cold or heat, suction closer or farther from the tooth depending on patient feedback. Significant time-saving has been seen during my braces removal appointments because of fewer pauses due to sensitivity issues, and a much better patient experience is the result.

The Meditorque slow-speed handpieces are the best we’ve ever used, at any price. They are truly a workhorse in our practice and have held up extremely well. Whether we’re doing IPR, polishing adhesive, or adjusting an acrylic retainer, they are always up to the task. If you’re looking for a handpiece with a great balance of speed and torque, yet quiet and smooth at the same time, look no further.
I have been sourcing my endo products from Medidenta for nearly 20 years. They have always delivered a high quality product at a reasonable price.
I have known and used Medidenta for at least thirty years. I have been completely satisfied with their professionalism, attentiveness and quality of products. I have ONLY bought ALL my high speed handpieces, turbines and low speed handpieces from Medidenta. They make a quality product and they back up their products. Their repair service is outstanding.
Warning: The new Atom handpiece is the bomb! ( Sorry, but i couldn’t resist the pun.) Kidding aside, this unbelievably lightweight and slim air-driven handpiece is incredible in its cutting ability; you can use it all day without experiencing any hand fatigue, and the handpiece does not get hot. The Atom is quiet, has 16.5 watts of power, and has a micro head for greater visibility and increased access in those patients, both adult and children, who have small vertical opening.
I absolutely LOVE the Air Free Handpieces!!! We used to blow warm air when using a regular handpiece to make the procedure more comfortable. With the Air Free Handpieces, my patients are SO much more comfortable. Also, it is the smoothest handpiece I've ever used. Removing glue is like cutting through butter.
