Maintaining your dental equipment is essential to providing quality care to your patients. Regular upkeep can prevent costly breakdowns and replacements.

Here at Global Dental we understand the importance of keeping your equipment in top condition. Here are few useful tips to help you keep your dental equipment running smoothly and providing optimal care to your patients.

Clean and sanitise regularly

This is the most important step in maintaining dental equipment and preventing the spread of infection. You should clean and disinfect all surfaces of your equipment after each use, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Pay special attention to areas that come into contact with the patient’s mouth, such as hand piece burs and ultrasonic scalers.

Check for wear and tear

Regularly inspect your dental equipment for signs of wear and tear, such as cracks, chips or frayed cords. Replace any damaged parts immediately. Ignoring worn-out equipment can lead to malfunctions, injuries and even the spread of infection.

Keep equipment properly lubricated

Proper lubrication is essential for keeping your dental equipment running smoothly and preventing damage. Lubricate hand pieces and other moving parts according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This will help to reduce friction and wear and tear on the internal components.

Store equipment properly

When not in use, store your dental equipment in a clean, dry place. Use protective covers or cases for delicate equipment and avoid stacking heavy items on top of each other. Following these tips will help to prevent damage and extend the lifespan of your equipment.

Schedule regular professional maintenance

In addition to regular cleaning and upkeep, it’s important to schedule professional maintenance for your dental equipment. This can include annual inspections and repairs by a qualified dental technician. A qualified technician can identify and address potential problems before they become major issues.

At Global Dental we offer three different types of service and repair plans for your equipment, which will be carried out by advanced, experienced dental engineers.
