“We are thrilled to officially launch our brand-new Midwest Energo series,” said Max Milz, Group Vice President Connected Technology Solutions at Dentsply Sirona. “With the new electric handpieces, we have been able to design features such as a smaller head,2 quieter operation3 and lower heat generation2 for increased patient safety.1

Quality that feels like day one

The Midwest Energo portfolio comprises the premium T1 Energo electric handpieces (with a standard and short version) and the comfort T2 Energo (with a standard version and a mini-head option). The small head size of the handpiece provides a very good view during the treatment. Both the T1 and T2 handpieces are equipped with “safe head technology”, which offers the coolest2) heads on the market and thus increases patient safety.1 They are also very easy to reprocess and incredibly quiet thanks to the patented3 4x2 nozzle spray. In addition, the lifetime has increased many times in comparison to the current models.1
