High Speed Overhauls

 

When repairing a high speed handpiece, you don’t always have to replace the turbine.  Under some conditions you can save money by having it overhauled or rebuilt instead. In these four meticulous steps we rebuild your turbine, saving you money.

  1. Remove the old bearings and any other parts too worn to reuse.
  2. Clean the turbine thoroughly.
  3. Install new bearings, o-rings and washers as required.
  4. Test the handpiece to make sure it performs properly.

An overhaul of your turbine requires the chuck mechanism, to be in good working order. If the chuck of your push button or lever style handpiece is bad, it will be necessary to replace the turbine.

Electric Handpiece and Attachment Repairs

We repair most brands, including:

• Kavo • Midwest •  NSK • Star • W&H/Adec • Others (contact us for more information)

Electric handpiece attachments or contra angles, don’t rely on air pressure to rotate the bur like high-speed handpieces do.  Instead, they have what is referred to as a drive dog in the backend of the handpiece that is turned by an electric motor.  As the drive dog turns, bearings and gears inside the handpiece spin causing the bur to turn.

The first components to fail in an electric contra angle are typically the two small bearings attached to the spindle in the head of the handpiece.  As these bearings wear, friction causes the head of the handpiece to heat up.  When you first notice the handpiece heating up, you should immediately stop using the handpiece.  At this point, it may be possible to rebuild the spindle and drive shaft by replacing their bearings, which is less expensive than a factory overhaul.  Continued use of the handpiece once these bearings begin to fail will result in damage to the gears and other drive train components and require a factory overhaul.

When you send your electric contra angle to Handpiece Xpress for repair, we will inspect the handpiece and determine whether you can take advantage of a rebuild, or if a factory overhaul is required.

Electric Handpiece FDA Advisory

The FDA has issued an advisory regarding the potential for patient injury due to improperly maintained or failing speed-increasing contra angle attachments.  Friction in the internal bearings and gears can cause overheating and possibly burn a patient.  Minimize heat by following the manufacturer’s lubrication and maintenance procedures and confirming that there is adequate air and water flow during use.

Electric Handpiece In-Office Testing

Feel

Insert test bur and manually rotate it between your fingers.  You should feel the bur rotating freely.

Listen

Connect attachment, then turn on cooling air, water, motor and gradually increase speed to maximum level (40K on control box panel).  Run for 30 to 45 seconds without a load and listen for unusual grinding or clicking noises when operating in forward and in reverse.

Touch

While running the handpiece at full speed, touch the head and neck areas to check for excessive heat.  It should feel cool to the touch.

If your handpiece fails any of these tests, discontinue use immediately and send to Handpiece Xpress for service.
