I am happy to announce that Patterson now offers NSK handpieces! Founded in 1930, NSK is the second-leading manufacturer of precision instruments worldwide. NSK manufactures 85% of its handpiece components in-house to ensure consistent quality.
NSK’s product line includes:
- High-speed (electric) handpieces and micromotors
- High-speed (air turbine) handpieces
- Low-speed handpieces
- Hygiene (ultrasonic scalers and tooth polishers)
- Endodontic handpieces and apex locator device
- Surgical and implant handpieces
- Dental laboratory micromotors and finishing handpieces
- Handpiece maintenance supplies
NSK handpieces have unique features that set them apart from others, including the patented NSK Clean Head System to reduce the risk of cross-contamination; Quattro water spray with 4 water jets to more effectively cool the cutting area; ceramic ball bearings to ensure durability with less weight and noise; titanium body line (Ti-Max) to offer lightweight control with good tactile sensitivity; cellular glass optics to deliver bright illumination that will not deteriorate due to repeated sterilizations; and handpiece models that fit couplers for KaVo, W&H, Bien-Air and Sirona. In addition, these handpieces can be repaired with a quick turnaround through the Patterson National Repair Center, an authorized repair facility for NSK handpieces. I think practices will be impressed with the technology and performance of this new Patterson product line.
