Cordless Endodontic Motor


Dentsply Maillefer, Ballaigues, Switzerland


PILOTDESIGN Philippe Vallat, Daniel Schürer, Vevey, Switzerland

Red Dot
The X-Smart IQ is an advanced endodontic motor for root canal treatments, which is controlled wirelessly via an iPad Mini. Not only does this enable graphically simplified operation of the device, but the planned treatment can be better explained to patients using imagery. The slim, well-balanced handpiece has a battery runtime long enough to carry out 16 treatments. The particularly small head and the angle piece, which rotates by 360 degrees, provide optimal access and unrestricted visibility.

Statement by the jury

»This endodontic motor impresses with its technical and aesthetic qualities. Its compact and functional design language lends the unit a premium and professional appearance. «
