Recent studies by Shiga University of Medical Science and Sunstar have shown a clear link between obesity and poor oral health, with patients with a higher BMI at far greater risk of tooth loss.

With 63% of UK adults considered overweight or obese, the need for early dental visits and fast treatment of obesity-related diseases and tooth decay is imperative.

As more patients seek urgent dental care for obesity-related issues, dentists are having to check their dental chair weight limits to ensure that appropriate treatment can be given without compromising the safety of the equipment.

Exceeding the dental chair weight limit can result in the chair breaking down and getting stuck in a position from which the patient cannot leave. This is both costly and time-wasting for dentists and therefore it’s always best to check weight limits of your equipment before treatment commences to avoid these situations.

To help dentists know the weight limit of their dental chair, we’ve compiled a list of the data for key dental chair brands and their dental chair weight limits.
