Just like your car, your dental handpieces could provide better performance, longer life and lower costs with one simple change: regular maintenance.

And while most dentists and dental assistants probably believe they are maintaining their handpieces correctly, manufacturers say there is room for improvement.

Whether it's due to lack of time or information, the fact is that most dental practices are not doing enough to properly maintain their handpieces, says Rick Gross, senior product manager for handpiece manufacturer StarDental?, part of the DentalEZ? Group. Practices are also losing time and money by sending out their handpieces for new turbines, when this is something any dental team can quickly and easily perform themselves, Gross says.

"Improper maintenance is killing handpieces," Gross says. "For example, most of the practices I see are skipping a crucial step, which is removing and cleaning the turbine on a regular basis."

Without regular, proper cleaning, biological matter and other contaminants build up on the turbine and impede performance, Gross says. Worse, with repeated sterilization, this matter gets baked into the interior of the housing. So when the office inserts a new turbine, dental equipment some of this matter breaks off & can damage the new turbine, shortening its' life.  

By investing a few minutes a day to clean the housing, turbine, chuck and fiber optics, Gross says dental teams can avoid this problem, extend the life of their handpieces, lower their costs and achieve a higher return on investment. But Gross says dental manufacturers can do a better job of educating dental teams on how to properly maintain their handpieces.
