How Should I Maintain My Handpiece?
Are you confused about handpiece maintenance?
That’s understandable. Recommendations vary and seem to change regularly. A good policy is to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Also remember —”If it works – don’t fix it!” —That is if you have been both consistent and successful with your maintenance procedures, you probably don’t need to change. However, if problems persist you may want to closely review your maintenance procedures.
Note: If you are using maintenance free bearings in your handpieces the spindle still requires cleaning and lubrication once a week.
