      6 criteria for choosing a dental turbine handpiece

      Dental handpiece manufacturers offer a wide range of options. A turbine handpiece is in special demand among dentists. This is the handpiece used for an air-driven dental treatment unit. The main device purpose is to impart a working instrument directional motion at a certain speed. In particular, a dental turbine handpiece is used to obtain working instrument rotational motion.

      Choice criteria

      Before buying this device, we recommend you to mind the following parameters:

      1. Working head size.
      2. Connector.
      3. Cooling system.
      4. Optics availability.
      5. Dental drill fixation system.
      6. Ceramic or steel bearing.

      Let us make sense of each feature in particular.

      Working head size

      There are three generally accepted standards in dentistry:

      1. Small size (mini). Such handpieces are used to treat kids’ teeth.
      2. Middle size (standard). They are applied for mixed visits, having the most common size.
      3. Large size (midi). They are used in orthopedics.

      It is worth knowing that the handpiece size affects its power: the bigger the product is, the more powerful it is.

      Connector

      Manufacturers offer the following types of hoses:

      • four-channel (Midwest);
      • two-channel (Borden).

      The most popular models are with four channels. Two-channel hoses are obsolete and almost not used by dentists nowadays. Handpieces are connected to hoses through quick-release adapters or using union nuts. Most products of medium and higher price range are produced exclusively for quick-release connections.

      Cooling system

      All turbine handpieces have cooling spray system since they are characterized by a high rotation speed. But such systems can differ in nozzles number, used for cooling drills. Inexpensive models include a single-point spray (rarely a three-point spray). Middle and high-end handpieces utilize three or five-point sprays to effectively cool drills.

      Optics availability

      Turbine handpieces, equipped with lighting devices cost more than devices without optics. However, equipment with optics fully justifies the price, as excellent illumination is provided for a dentist.

      A dental unit has to be equipped with a fiber optics system to work with handpieces with lighting devices. Otherwise, we recommend you to consider choosing handpieces with LEDs and built-in generators.

      Dental drill fixation system

      It can be:

      • latch (very rare);
      • button;
      • key.

      Ceramic or steel bearing

      A ceramic bearing is notable for a long service life when compared to its steel counterpart. However, it is necessary to keep in mind high maintenance requirements. Excessive dirt at high rotational speeds can destroy both steel and ceramic bearings very quickly.
