General Maintenance and Care

  1. Proper Handling and Storage:​

    • Use a designated storage case or pouch to protect the handpiece from damage.

  2. Cleaning and Sterilization:

    • Follow the manufacturer's instructions for cleaning and sterilizing the handpiece after each use.

    • Ensure proper drying before storage or sterilization to prevent bacterial growth.

  3. Lubrication and Maintenance:

    • Regularly lubricate the handpiece as per the manufacturer's guidelines to ensure smooth operation.

    • Use a compatible lubricant designed for dental handpieces and follow the recommended intervals.

    • Avoid over-lubrication, as excess lubricant can attract debris and compromise performance.

  4. Inspection and Preventive Maintenance:

    • Perform routine inspections to identify any signs of wear, damage, or malfunction.

    • Check for loose or worn parts, such as chuck mechanisms or bur tools.

    • At least once or twice a week, using a product such as Junk Out, apply a small amount on a proxy brush and insert it into the chuck. In a back-and-forth motion, repeat this till the brush comes out clean.

  5. Handling Bur Tools and Accessories:

    • Follow proper procedures when inserting and removing bur tools to avoid damage to the chuck.

    • Ensure that bur tools are securely fastened to prevent slippage during use.

    • Regularly inspect and clean bur tools to remove debris and maintain their effectiveness.

  6. Environmental Considerations:

    • Avoid exposing the handpiece to extreme temperatures or harsh chemicals.

    • Protect the handpiece from exposure to water, as excessive moisture can damage internal components.

    • Be mindful of the handpiece's electrical components and avoid exposing them to liquids.
