The all-in-one KaVo ELECTROmatic: Find out what Dental Product Shopper Evaluators think

Known as an all-in-one device for intuitive operation and integrated endo function, the KaVo ELECTROmatic is proving its reputation as “Best Product” among dentists. Dental Product Shopper (DPS) evaluators put the device to work during a 2-week trial to test its features, performance, and versatility in their day-to-day practice. While the ELECTROmatic™ Series features 3 distinct systems to meet the different needs of a practice, DPS evaluators used the KaVo ELECTROmatic Premium along with one of KaVo’s MASTERmatic LUX M-series handpieces.

Speed and Torque

KaVo ELECTROmatic has changed the restoration game with constant torque, controlled speed, and quiet operation, all of which were designed to reduce chair time and provide a better patient and doctor experience. Its dual-motor option also makes switching between high- and low-speed functions quicker, and the speed can be adjusted easily on the control system display for a range of indications.

Dr. Bruce Howard evaluated the KaVo ELECTROmatic system in his practice with high expectations, hoping it would cut down on procedure times to improve his workflow and make patients more comfortable. After using the system, he found that he was able to perform crown preps faster and effortlessly—it took him one-third of the time it usually did. He also noted the system’s excellent torque, good ergonomic handpieces, and a very low noise level.

Dr. Howard wasn’t the only one who took notice of the quicker crown preparation with the KaVo ELECTROmatic. This is where Marc Malatesta, DDS, saw the greatest impact, saying, “due to its constant torque, it allows for a much faster crown preparation, which is great for the tooth and the patient, and reduced overall chair time.”

Dr. Chander Bhatti said he appreciated the “slow-speed latch while polishing composites, having a nice constant torque, and having water spray.” He also noted, “Prepping for a crown was a treat. The handpiece did not slow down; it had constant torque. I liked being able to slow the handpiece down for polishing the margins of the crown.”

Programs, Touchscreen, Handpiece Connection

While the speed and torque of the KaVo ELECTROmatic were designed for more efficiency, the system’s programming and handpiece connection are no exception. Not only do the preprogrammed file systems make it easier to plan and customize endodontic sequences, the device also features intuitive programming adjustments that allow up to 5 speed memory presets. With the touch of a button, you can quickly access your desired preset—less fumbling, more comfort.

Furthermore, evaluators took notice of the large 4.3-inch TFT color touchscreen display, noting its ease of use and simplicity between presets and handpieces. While looking for an efficient way to change the RPMs of the handpieces for the different products he uses, Dr. James Merrett found that it was very easy with the KaVo ELECTROmatic. Fellow peers also agreed that handpieces were simple and quick to hook up. Dr. Helen Lester commented that it was particularly nice to be able to adjust the water on the motor itself. Dr. J Michael Heider added, “The water adjustment was an easy-to-access knob at the end of the hose connection.”

Overall, the evaluators agreed on the efficiency and benefits of the KaVo ELECTROmatic Premium. Not only did it make certain procedures more efficient, but it also improved the patient experience with a much lower noise level and shorter prep time. In the words of Dr. Howard, the system was especially useful for easier and faster restorations, and the device “should pay for itself in chair time.”

From the systems dual-motor option and special prep modes, to its intuitive handling and customizable presets, it’s no surprise why the ELECTROmatic Premium from KaVo earned the title of “Best Product” from Dental Product Shopper and a 4.5 rating.
