Aquacut Twin-Chamber Dental Air Abrasion and Air Polishing for Cavity Preparation, Cleaning and Stain Removal
Aquacut Quattro it is the most versatile piece of equipment in your operatory.
The Aquacut Quattro uses AquaAbrasion™, air abrasion to perform a variety of pain free minimally invasive dental treatments alongside prophylaxis (air polishing) as a dental prophy unit.
AquaAbrasion™ eliminates the mess traditionally associated with dental air abrasion. Use AquaAbrasion™ as part of everyday cavity preparation, composite removal and as a micro etcher or dental ‘sandblaster’. Perform superior dental prophylaxis and stain removal and treat sensitive teeth with ‘Sylc for Aquacut’, powered by NovaMin®.
Features of Aquacut
What Can this Machine Do for You?
In cleaning mode, the Aquacut Quattro is a valuable tool for the hygienist, delivering highly efficient stain removal and cleaning. It also increases the effectiveness of tooth whitening procedures.
The Aquacut Quattro’s patented handpiece delivers a high-speed fluid stream, fed from a self-contained reservoir, to create a liquid curtain around the abrasive medium. This provides comfortable and efficient cavity preparation. The triple-action foot control enables cut, clean, wash, and dry operations to be carried out through the same handpiece, allowing continuous operation without interruption. The twin powder chambers permit cutting and prophy or stain removal at the twist of a switch. For example, suspicions concerning an area of possible decay can be confirmed with the Aquacut Quattro in cleaning mode, and then treated by switching back to cutting mode.
Aquacut Quattro is a fraction of the cost of a hard-tissue laser, while providing fast, efficient cutting and cleaning with very high levels of patient acceptability. The Aquacut Quattro cuts quickly but very conservatively, minimizing the removal of sound tooth material and eliminating the risk of chipping or stress fracturing.

No Dust from Air Abrasion or Polishing with AquaAbrasion
AquaAbrasion fluid sleeve keeps abrasive powder contained to the oral cavity A fluid shroud encapsulates the powder from the tip of the handpiece to the treatment area, reducing mess and targeting its effectiveness.
AquaAbrasion for Cutting and Prophy
Feature Class I-VI cutting and preparation, cleaning and brightening in one unit. Perform air abrasion and air polishing with the same unit by turning a switch, increasing your productivity with pain free minimally invasive dentistry.The Aquacut fluid abrasion system from Velopex has been widely acclaimed by practitioners seeking more patient-friendly approaches to caries treatment and general dentistry.This versatile cutting and cleaning instrument offers important benefits to both dentist and patient. It can even be used for veterinary dentistry.
Minimally Invasive Dentistry – Safe, Conservative Cutting
Preserve healthy tooth structure during AquaAbrasionAir abrasion is more conservative than the drill; it only removes desired material and suffers no chipping or stress fracturing, greatly improving patient comfort.The Aquacut Quattro minimalizes the removal of sound tooth material, with risk of chipping or stress fracturing is eliminated.
Pain Free Dentistry
Greatly reduced need for anaesthesia in every-day cavity preparationTreat young, nervous and dental phobic patients with pain free AquaAbrasion and avoiding unnecessary waiting time for anaesthesia to take effect.
Time-Saving Foot Control
The triple action foot control enables cut, clean, wash and dry operations to be carried out through the same handpiece, allowing continuous operation without interruption.
Function Changes at the Twist of a Switch
The twin powder chambers permit cutting and prophy or stain removal at the twist of a switch. For example, suspicions concerning an area of possible decay can be confirmed with the Aquacut Quattro in cleaning mode, and then treated by switching back to cutting mode.
The Perfect Tool for Modern Adhesive Dentistry
The Aquacut Quattro is the right tool for today’s adhesive dentistry. It enables the rapid repair of composites and leaves cavity surfaces rough and ready for receiving the bonding agent and the filling materials. It is excellent for the repair of composites and of existing fillings that have begun to fail.
Effective Stain Removal
Multi-Function Handpiece – Treat Wash and Dry
3-in-1 handpiece to facilitate your whole AquaAbrasion procedureThe Aquacut Quattro’s patented handpiece delivers a high-speed fluid stream, fed from a self-contained reservoir, to create a liquid curtain around the abrasive medium.The autoclavable handpiece comes in color-coded nozzle sizes. The long-life tungsten carbide nozzles are easily changed to suit the treatment.An entire procedure can be performed without removing the tip from the oral cavity. One handpiece supplies air, water and/or treating medium.
Convenient Powder Cartridge System
|Sodium Bicarbonate (fine grain)||Polishing and prophy|
|Sylc for Aquacut||Superior polishing and prophy. Desensitising cleaning and stain removal. your patient will spend very litte time in the chair and experience no discomfort.|
|Aluminium Oxide 29 micron||Cavity preparation – designed for Minimally Invasive Dentistry, cuts with accuracy and precision, removing as little sound tooth material as possible. Can be used for cavity preparation and carries removal without anaesthesia and in place of the drill for dental phobic patients and children.|
|Aluminium Oxide 53 micron||Composite restoration|
Drill Less Dentistry – Calm Dental Phobia
No uncomfortable contact with tooth or disturbing turbine characteristics. AquaAbrasion produces no vibration, heat generation, turbine noise or unpleasant smell, increasing patient comfort and calming dental phobia. Unlike conventional rotary cutting instruments, the Aquacut is not in direct contact with the tooth structure. Local anesthesia is seldom needed, saving time and making the Aquacut ideal for treating young, nervous or needle-phobic patients.
Aquacut Quattro = Dental ‘Sandblaster’ + Micro Etcher
Perform abrasion and micro etching in-surgery with minimal powderUse chair-side for abrading crowns or preps (incl. Zirconia before cementation) by turning off fluid sleeve, avoiding the need to send to the lab for treatment.The Aquacut performs the function of a number of other devices in your surgery, better. There is now no longer a need for a separate dental “sandblaster”, MicroEtcher and Biofilm eraser – the Aquacut does it all and more.
