The Henry Schein Maxima Pro 2AR handpiece incorporates aerosol reduction and anti-retraction features, helping reduce the risk of viral and bacterial spread, according to the company.

The Maxima Pro 2AR reduces the emission of airborne particles by an average of more than 90% compared to typical high-speed air handpieces, Henry Schein said. Also, an active sealing system provides ant-retraction by helping prevent the suck-back of fluid and particles, reducing cross-contamination risks, the company said.

“We’re pleased to announce the availability of the Henry Schein branded Maxima Pro 2AR handpiece to help ensure the safety of dental professionals, especially as they serve on the frontlines of essential oral care during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said AJ Caffentzis, president of US dental distribution at Henry Schein.

“Our customers can rely on us to offer a wide variety of air management solutions, helping to foster a safer environment for their patients and dental team,” Caffentzis said.

The Maxima Pro 2AR also maintains the enhanced ergonomic design of its predecessor, the Maxima Pro 2, Henry Schein said. Its all stainless-steel construction and high-strength alloy head are designed to enhance durability and resist dents, while the proprietary wear-resistant surface finish offers improved tactile grip.

Additionally, the small but powerful head provides 20 W as well as superior visibility and accessibility, Henry Schein said. The handpiece is available in both optic and non-optic models with the most popular connections.
