Exceptional feel with lasting durability.

Titanium is 30% lighter, yet more durable than stainless steel. It offers a natural tactile sense and exceptional usability. With applications ranging from high-speed gross reduction and low-speed precision finishing, to specialty functions such as endodontics, NLZ and NLX nano help you achieve greater precision and treat patients more efficiently.
