One of the most popular handpiece manufacturers in the US, Star handpieces, produced by DentalEZ go back to the early days of air driven technology. While Densply Midwest was bowling over competition with the Midwest Quiet Air, DentalEZ began producing Star handpieces predecessor to the now very popular Star 430 SWL.
Star handpieces are now found in a majority of offices in the US. With the 430 series heading their highspeed line, the new Star Solara is the natural progression for dentists accustomed to the size and operation of the Star 430 SWL. The Solara has virtually the same feel as the 430, and includes Star’s Patented Vortex lube free ceramic bearing turbine. The Star Solara offers the advantage of better fiber optics and a greater resistance to, or protection against, the dreaded rigors of the autoclave.

Titan also offers speed increasing and speed reducing couplers should you choose to increase the range of use of the motor you purchase.
