What is the cost for dental handpiece repair and maintenance?

How much are you likely to pay for dental handpiece repair and maintenance?

The cost for dental handpiece repair and maintenance will vary depending on the actual repair and how many handpieces need to be repaired. There are also many other variables that will have an impact on cost, such as the type of turbine the handpiece has and whether yours is a high or low speed motor.

Whatever the reason for needing handpiece repair, many repair companies are happy to give you an estimate once they have established the problem with the handpiece, and others will give set prices for particular repairs. Often, discounts will be given if repairs are needed for multiple dental handpieces.

Annual maintenance deals can be negotiated with dental equipment companies, and again the price varies depending on the level of cover that you require, what pieces of equipment you want to be covered, and how many.

Important tips to safely ship dental handpieces for repair

When shipping dental handpieces for repair, ensure that each piece is securely packaged and that it is impossible for any sharp pieces to break through the packaging to avoid potential injury, and further damage to the handpiece.

If more than one handpiece is to be shipped, it is advisable that each one is wrapped separately so that they are easily identified, and so that they cannot bang against each other in transit and cause further damage.

Make sure that adequate labeling is in each parcel so that our handpiece repair team knows exactly where the handpieces have come from in order to facilitate easy and prompt return. A brief description of the fault (if known) can also be useful.

Remember that we offer free shipping on all dental handpiece repairs and even just for diagnosing and quoting you on the possibility of repair. I’m looking forward to working with you. Thank you for trusting The Dental Handpiece Repair Guy for your dental handpiece repair.

Signs that your dental handpiece isn’t functioning properly

Dental handpiece repair is important to consider if you are experiencing any of the following issues with your dental hand piece.

The bur on a dental handpiece needs to suit the practitioner perfectly for the best results. If the practitioner notices any deviation in the usual performance of the bur, it can be assumed that the handpiece is not functioning properly and must be attended to. Vibrations, loss of torque or any other unusual occurrences should be attended to immediately.

Another warning sign that your dental handpiece is not functioning properly is if it gets too hot during use. This could be due to ineffective lubrication and could mean that the bearings and other vital parts are corroded. This can have severe consequences on the life span of the handpiece.
