[Webinar] 5 Simple Recommendations to Maintain Your Handpiece

Posted by THE NEXTDDS on Fri, Oct 27, 2017 @ 12:00 PM

Powerful-1.jpgDental handpieces have evolved significantly over the years and they remain a vital part of dentistry today. The care and maintenance of these instruments is essential to preserving not only the life of the instrument but its proper function as well. Understanding how to clean and maintain these handpieces and their components properly will help the clinician achieve optimal results.

Since the dental handpiece is vital to daily practice, its care and maintenance is important for preserving long-term function. Practitioners have both air-driven and electric handpieces and, though each is slightly different from the other, certain “best practices” for their maintenance apply to both handpiece options. To provide optimal patient care, it is important for practitioners to understand methods to clean and maintain handpieces and their components. Within this training event, attendees will learn how to evaluate the need for cleaning and proper maintenance steps.

Learning objectives include:

  • How to properly clean and sterilize the handpiece
  • Avoiding common mistakes with handpiece maintenance
  • Proper care for lights and involved components
  • Differences in air turbines and electric options
  • When to send handpieces for repair or replacement

Today’s dental practice could not exist without the dental handpiece. The evolution of the handpiece has fundamentally changed the way clinicians care for their patients, providing an efficient and effective means of tooth preparation. Handpieces exist in both air-driven and electric options, and each has specific features and considerations for use. Air-driven and electric handpieces are slightly different in design, and future practitioners should understand their differences and advantages. This first virtual training event will discuss their characteristics and cutting potential.

Practitioners have both air-driven and electric handpieces and, though each is slightly different from the other, certain “best practices” for their maintenance apply to both handpiece options. Since the dental handpiece is vital to daily practice, its care and maintenance is important for preserving long-term function.

Additional discussion topics include:

  • Major developments in handpiece technology
  • Design of air-driven handpieces
  • Accessibility to intraoral locations
  • Ergonomics of air turbines
  • Cutting operation of air-driven and electric handpieces
  • Introduction to maintenance considerations
