As a dental professional, you are aware of the importance of the quality and value in all dental equipment that you purchase. NSK has been manufacturing high-quality dental rotary instruments, dental motors, and other small dental equipment for over 80 years.

If you are looking for a new dental handpiece for your dental practice, at Critical Dental, we are committed to bringing you leading industry brands at affordable prices. The NSK TI-MAX Z45 Contra-Angle handpiece is an excellent choice for your dental practice.


NSK TI-MAX Z45 Contra-Angle handpiece

The TI-MAX Z45 Contra-Angle handpiece is the world’s first of its kind, with a 45-degree angle head, providing ease-of-access in even the hardest to reach places such as molars.

This NSK dental handpiece is state-of-the-art and provides optimal visibility and streamlined access. It offers the first two-way spray feature which is helpful in a broader range of procedures, including third-molar preparations.

The body is composed of pure titanium which provides lightness and reduces the burden on the users’ hands. The properties of titanium are biocompatible, which reduces concerns for sensitivities to metal.

The NSK dental handpiece features the Clean Head System, a patented mechanism that automatically prevents the entry of contaminants into the handpiece.  

Electric vs. Air Turbine

While air turbine handpieces are the tried-and-true preference of most dentists, favourability towards electric handpieces has increased over the years.

This is because an electric dental handpiece is able to maintain the same consistent speed throughout treatment. The air turbine devices tend to slow down a bit once friction is applied to them.

The TI-MAX Z45 Contra-Angle handpiece features the NSK NLZ Micromotor system, a new motor which provides up to 120% increase in torque. This allows for more precise cutting and better precision, which in turn shortens the patient’s time in the dentist chair. 



One of the perks of purchasing dental equipment from reliable sources such as NSK is that they provide detailed maintenance guidelines with their products.

Proper maintenance of equipment is a necessary step in maintaining the longevity and quality of your product. Understanding the maintenance process increases your understanding of the device’s many working parts.

Automated NSK dental handpieces such as the TI-MAX Contra-Angle may be cleaned in a thermo-disinfector. 

You may still choose to manually clean your handpieces, but always refer to the maintenance guidelines. Lubrication is an important step in dental handpiece maintenance, and you may choose to manually lubricate your handpiece or automatically lubricate with the help of a specialty device called NSK iCare.

NSK iCare is a handpiece thermo-disinfector and automatic lubricator in one.
