Quick Tip Tuesday #78: Handpieces

All dentists have their preferred dental handpiece. If you are a dentist that uses a high-speed handpiece with a fiberoptic or LED bulb, this quick tip is for you.

Having a light on your handpiece helps focus light on the area of examination. Like most bulbs, they tend to burn out after use. Your dental handpiece goes through quite a bit of wear-and-tear, so the suggested precautions seen above will really help you increase the longevity of your lighted high-speed hp. Your handpiece choice is all personal preference and proper maintenance is key to running them properly (see Practice Tip #5 for more hp maintenance and Practice Tip #36 for more on hp couplers).
