Work with the optimal application speed and maximum treatment efficacy through the unique symbiosis of power and ease for extra control combined with premium comfort.

Primea Advanced Air

This product is available to be purchased as an Add-on or Built-in Solution (selected dental units only). You can discover the advantages of the two versions here.

  • Constant Removal Rate

    Constant Removal Rate

    Automatic power adjustment with electronic air control thanks to Advanced Air technology.
    With the Advanced Air technology, loss of speed is a thing of the past. A sensor in the head of the turbine measures the actual rotation speed of the bur on the tooth constantly. As soon as the speed threatens to slow, the control module adjusts the air supply immediately so as to ensure the constant removal of tooth structure.

        Effortless opening of cavities, easy cutting of crowns and bridges, removal of old fillings at lightning speed and finishing of preparation margins with ultimate precision.

      • Crown and cavity preparations

        Preparation of cavities and crowns with minimal effort

        The constantly high bur speed of 320,000 rpm allows efficient, controlled and precise performance of high-speed tasks.

        You can open cavities effortlessly, shape crown preparations safely and guarantee effective treatment.

      • Cut crowns and bridges

        Cut crowns and bridges faster

        Whether ceramic or metal, the removal and cutting of extremely robust, indirect restorations is a mighty challenge for the dentist and instrument alike.

        The Primea Advanced Air allows you to set the recommended speed for the specific instruments and enjoy optimal, constant removal rate.

      • Remove fillings

        Remove fillings safely and efficiently

        From A for amalgam to C for composite to Z for zirconium dioxide: the Primea Advanced Air allows you to remove old fillings quickly and safely. The optimal ratio of minimum heat development to high removal rate is achieved at a speed of 160,000 rpm.

      • Controlled finishing

        Controlled finishing

        With the Primea Advanced Air you can perform this sensitive step with a constantly low bur speed of just 60,000 rpm.

        This allows you to profile the preparation surface even more minimally invasively and finish the preparation margins with even more control than with a classic turbine handpiece.

        Controlled and precise performance of high-speed tasks

        With the Advanced Air technology I can significantly reduce the treatment time of my patients.
