Why To Get More Than One Dental Handpiece of the Same Type

Hi, I’m Ken Groba, The Dental Handpiece Repair Guy and I’m going to share with you a story that will help explain why you should have more than one dental handpiece of the same type.

Recently, a customer of mine sent me their low speed Star Titan dental handpiece. They asked me to rush the repair and explained that this was their only low speed dental handpiece in the office. The dentist was extremely stressed and had some valuable dental work that needed to be completed. I was able to get the handpiece repaired and back to them right away, but the doctor lost valuable time due to the issue with the dental handpiece. To ensure you are well equipped in your office so you have no downtime, here are the recommendations for how many dental handpieces you should have in your office.

Experts recommend four or five high speed dental hanpdieces per operatory. It is also recommended that you have at least two low speed dental handpieces, more if your workflow demands it. You at least need to have a backup, in addition to the handpieces that may be in use simultaneously. If you are running your office with only one low speed dental handpiece I would encourage you to get another one, so if your handpiece happens to malfunction, you don’t experience a loss of time and production.

Four Ways to Prevent Dental Handpiece Damage

When it comes to taking care of your dental handpieces, there are four crucial things you need to keep in mind if you want to prevent damaging them. While it’s inevitable that things break down, it’s possible to extend the life of your handpieces by taking note of the following tips:

First, make sure to run your handpiece at the air pressure recommended by the manufacturer – this usually means keeping your air pressure at less than 35 PSI for high-speed handpieces, and less than 45 PSI for low speed handpieces. However, always consult the manual to be sure.

Second, when it comes to tightening the chuck, always do this with a bur in place. The reason is to prevent damage to the collet, which can be expensive to replace.

Third, when operating your push button handpiece, take care never depress the push button while it is in use. Doing so will often result in excessive heat being generated at the cap of your handpiece. The chucking mechanism may also be damaged and it’s possible that the bur will be expelled from the rotating handpiece.

And last, when it comes to sterilizing your handpiece, always make sure you remove the bur first to avoid corrosion.

How to Prepare Your Dental Handpiece for Repair

Video Transcript

Hi I’m Ken, The Dental Handpiece Repair Guy and I want to show you the steps to prepare your dental handpiece for repair.

The first thing you need to do is sterilize your dental handpiece. This ensures a clean, safe repair.

Then you can visit my website, download the handpiece repair form and shipping label and print them out.

Fill out the repair form completely, and please give as much detail as possible about the problems you are experiencing with your handpiece. Make a copy of your completed repair form so you can refer back to it, if needed.

Make sure to leave your handpiece in the sterilization pouch and box up your handpiece. Please include the dental handpiece repair form in the box with the handpiece, so I can identify the owner of the handpiece as well as the problems you are experiencing. Put the shipping label on the box and send it to me from your local post office. I recommend insuring your package.

…and those are the steps to get your dental handpiece prepared for the repair. You can expect a 24 to 48 hour turnaround for high speeds, 7 to 10 days for electric and low speed handpieces. As always, feel free to call me at 800-569-5245 with any questions. Thank you.

How often should you get your dental handpieces maintained and repaired?

Most dentists will have up to ten handpieces in their occupancy at any one time, and all of these will need daily maintenance, after use, as well as a ‘tune-up’ or repair at least once per year, if not on a six-month basis. High-speed drills with revolutions of up to 400,000 – 500,000 per minute will require more frequent maintenance to ensure they continue working optimally, and to reduce the chance for major repair, while slower handpieces may last for a year before they need to be disassembled and rebuilt again. If you send your handpieces to me on a six to 12 month basis, I can keep your handpieces running as good as new. I offer free shipping on all repairs and I guarantee my work, so print out the forms on my website at www.TheDentalHandpieceRepairGuy.com and send in your handpiece. If you need any assistance, please call me at 1-800-569-5245. Thank you.
