Dental handpiece turbines provide power for many different types of handpieces. If your handpiece is losing torque, it may be time to replace the turbine.

Dental rotors supply dental handpiece turbines for a wide range of top brands linked above including kaVo, NSK, Sirona, Midwest, Bien Air…

Turbine Repair for High-Speed Dental Handpieces

In terms of repairs for the high-speed dental handpieces in practices, the most common involve the turbines of the air-driven dental handpiece.

Throughout history, turbines in dental handpieces were known to have a long lifespan; however, since the induction of constant sterilization, turbines have a limited lifespan.

As a result, practitioners often find themselves spending a great deal on repairs.

This is the only moving component in air-driven high-speed dental handpieces. While in operation, turbines often meet or exceed speeds of 400,000 RPM. The excessive speeds in which the turbine operates also results in the wear and tear on the part.

While cleaning and ensuring lubrication aids in extending the overall life of the dental turbine, repair is an eventual and inevitable challenge that will be met by your practice.

Handpiece Turbine Components

The turbine that is located in today’s dental handpieces possesses many different parts. These include a spindle, O-rings, an end cap, a cap-end bearing, a chuck, an impeller, and a bur-end bearing.

The turbine is often considered to be the “brain” of the dental instrument and the bearings are considered to be the “heart” of the instrument.

If components of the turbine quit functioning, the turbine, itself, may start to fail. This may negatively impact your ability to perform procedures on patients, may result in patient dissatisfaction, and may even result in downtime for your practice.

Dental Handpiece Repair

If the turbine in your dental handpiece starts to fail, you will require a repair technician. In terms of costs, it makes sense to have the turbine rebuilt instead of completely replaced. The technicians that specialize in dental handpiece repair services typically have been certified by the manufacturer of the devices.

It is best to opt for only those that hold this certification and you should confirm the technician’s credentials. By opting for a certified repair specialist, you will save both time and money as the turnaround is often quick and the process of rebuilding the turbine is much cheaper than completely replacing the turbine.
