The TwinPower Turbine Ultra Series offers excellent cutting ability with smooth, chatter-free revolutions. A compact head design allows for exceptional posterior access and offers improved views with a mirror or microscope. Although they are ‘mini’ handpieces, clinician reviews have noted this series is powerful enough for everyday tooth preparation.
This product line includes the new UltraM and UltraE. The UltraM is the smallest of the two with a head height of just 10.6 mm and 18 watts of power. Its unique head design accepts standard burs up to 20 mm in length. The slightly larger UltraE is 12.7 mm tall and offers 20 watts of power with standard burs.
As with all TwinPower Turbine handpieces, the Ultra Series also provides excellent contamination control with zero suck back in the air line. A double impeller rotor design, exclusive to TwinPower handpieces, delivers constant torque and controlled speed, even under high load conditions. Other features include: push button chuck, rapid braking, LED coupler option, direct connection to popular coupling systems, and a two year warranty.
The TwinPower Turbine Ultra Series will be introduced at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, February 23 – 25, 2012. Visit the J. Morita Booth #2606 for more information, or call 1-877-JMORITA (566-7482). www.morita.com/usa/twinpower.

RACINE, WI – Science has shown that irrigants are more effective when they are electro-mechanically activated. Acoustic streaming and cavitation of endodontic solutions has been shown to significantly enhance cleansing of difficult anatomy. Studies have shown that low frequency (Sonic) oscillation (160-190Hz) was not sufficient in creating acoustic streaming or cavitation within the canal space.
EndoUltra™ is the only cordless, compact, battery operated piezo ultrasonic (40kHz) activation device. Only EndoUltra™ is capable of producing acoustic streaming and cavitation in small canal spaces, resulting in significantly improved debridement, disruption of biofilm, improved penetration of irrigants into dentinal tubules, and the removal of vapor lock. Resulting in improved outcomes.
