Addressing Patient Safety in the Most Responsible Manner
In recent years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) along with other national public health authorities, have reported an alarming
increase in patient injuries resulting from electric dental handpieces overheating during procedures*. The most severe cases have caused third-degree burns requiring reconstructive surgery, likely subjecting the practitioner to lengthy legal actions.
While overheating can be an indication of a damaged or clogged instrument, laboratory evaluations reveal that this hazard is just as prevalent
in new and properly-maintained electric handpieces.
In a committed effort to promote patient safety, Bien-Air is introducing CoolTouch+™, the world's first and only heat-arresting system proven
not to exceed human body temperature**. After years of research and development, this complex proprietary technology is engaged to protect both the patient and the clinician during some of the profession's most frequently performed procedures.
You've worked hard to build a solid reputation.
Don't destroy it by compromising patient safety.
