VERY IMPORTANT! Do not install a new dental rotor in the handpiece if there is external damage. Installing a newdental rotor/turbine (dental turbinen) in a damaged head will permanently damage the dental high speed handpiece. Alternatively, you can purchase a dental turbine head reamer/reamer from www.dental-rotors.com to remove the dents yourself, but as with any repair, you must have specialized skills.
REMOVAL Damaged dental handpiece parts:
Each dental handpiece repairs has its own head design and size and each button differs from model to model as well as the handpiece manufacturer and you can find button keys also called back caps which can be compatible between models such as KaVo different models of handpieces that are the same size and design with the same number of pins and fit together, but you cannot use the same service button for KaVo turbines with NSK turbines because they are completely different.
1. Using the special dental back cap/ button wrench, unscrew the back tooth cap from the handpiece head and remove the worn dental turbine by pushing it out from the front. Use only the appropriate tool to remove the end cap. The use of pliers or improper tools may damage the dental handpiece repairs.
2. WARNING. It is necessary to check the inside of the head for the presence of foreign objects and debris – remove if any. Compare a worn dental rotor to a new dental turbine to determine which components may still be present in your handpiece. Use a scaler or probe to remove any old dental turbine components , including gaskets, o-rings, washers, or bearing holders. After removing all old dental turbine components, use a cotton swab and dental handpiece lubricant to clean the head of the dental handpiece. Using air from an air/water syringe, purge the head of the handpiece to remove all cotton fibers.
INSTALLATION of dental cartridge/rotor/turbine:

2. Lubricate the inside of the dental handpiece generously, paying particular attention to the O-rings. While holding the dental handpiece face down, fully insert the dental turbine into the head of the dental handpiece. Each dental rotor bearing has a small lip that rests against o-rings . Screw the end cap into the handpiece head using the appropriate tool.WARNING: The end cap must be securely tightened using the special wrench to ensure safe positioning of the dental high speed turbine (dental turbinen). If you are unable to fully install the end cap, remove and inspect the end cap for debris/old turbine components. If the problem persists, send the replacement dental rotor and handpiece to a repair shop for installation.
