Keep Your Handpieces Out of Our Hands!

General Handpiece Operating Tips

➡ Please check to ensure that your delivery unit air pressure is set to the manufacturers recommended pressure. Most handpiece drive air pressures should not exceed 35 PSI. The air pressure should be measured right at the handpiece connection to the tubing to get the most accurate reading possible. Increasing air pressure will not increase handpiece performance due to increased back pressure, but may damage the turbine.

➡ Never tighten any manual chuck without a bur in place, or you may damage the chuck.

➡ Never operate any handpiece without a bur securely in place.

➡ Do not depress the push button of a handpiece during operation. This may open the chucking mechanism and release the bur.

➡ Do not use the handpiece to retract the patient’s cheek or other soft tissue. This could generate excessive heat if the end cap is depressed when turbine is running.

➡ Before operating a handpiece and/or component, always carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

We are always here for you…and your handpieces. But in our opinion, the fewer repairs you have us do, the happier you’ll be. Here are some helpful tips to keep your handpieces lubricated and functioning properly.

Some handpieces are maintenance free, or Lube Free®, meaning the bearings do not require routine lubrication. However, the push button chuck mechanism is made up of tiny, moving, metal parts that do need cleaning and lubrication to ensure safe performance, and extend the life of the chuck mechanism. According to Star Dental® it is necessary to clean the turbine autochuck once a week.

We recommend the following procedure:

  1. Place a drop of oil on the end of a proxy brush, or in the chuck opening.

  2. Insert the proxy brush into the chuck opening.

  3. Slide the brush in and out several times to loosen and remove any accumulated buildup.

  4. Spray air from your syringe into the chuck to expel any loose material.
