QUATTROcare Automatic Handpiece Maintenance System
I’ve made no secret of my love for my KaVo ELECTROtorque handpieces. The torque is so high that I can turn the speed down to a measly 3000 rpm and still have enough power to cut tooth structure, and because the speed is so low, I can do it without water! I also need that immense torque to properly polish intraoral restorations when I have to make an adjustment after cementation. To maintain my investment in these handpieces and keep them running smoothly, my assistant loves her KaVo QUATTROcare. It automatically cleans, lubricates and purges the handpieces with the push of a button, and then they go straight into sterilization. In case your Italian is weak, the “quattro” in QUATTROcare refers to the fact that it will service up to four handpieces at a time.
