Points to take into account when acquiring transmission instruments

To comply with hygiene requirements, turbines, contra-angles, and motors must be sterilized after each patient. It is important that the instruments can be easily and quickly separated from the hose and mounted without problems. Avoid placement procedures that require a lot of time. You should also pay attention to the sterilization of the couplings.


An effective cleaning team is crucial to the effective maintenance process. The different instrument designs of the manufacturers require specific maintenance procedures. It is important to choose instruments whose maintenance is simple and easy to perform in normal practice.


  • Each instrument is sterilized several times a day. Only high-quality instruments support this number of cycles without sacrificing performance.
  • Conscientiously choosing a sterilizer can save costs. Vacuum sterilizers prevent humidity in the instruments and guarantee a longer service life.


Compare warranty periods and find out which components of the warranty are excluded. Wear parts such as ball bearings are usually excluded from this warranty.

Size and weight

Ergonomics plays a fundamental role. The use of titanium does not solve this problem. You will be surprised by the weight reduction of the instruments that you can get with other materials

Potential and speed

Do not be fooled by high idle speed or performance data. A power test under load will quickly reveal whether the product has sufficient power or not.

Brand products

We recommend choosing handpiece repair only products from known manufacturers. You will often find special offers from low-cost manufacturers. The products of such suppliers are usually of low quality and usually do not comply with regulations and standards

Reduced head and ergonomic design

Both the hand piece and the Alegra contra-angle fit perfectly in the hand. Thanks to its excellent ergonomics W & H hand pieces and contra-angles will prevent your hands from making great efforts during treatment.


  • Robust and durable
  • Ergonomic design
  • Easy milling change with push button clamping system
  • Thermodisinfectable and sterilizable

What you should know to buy your dental turbine

The purchase of rotary material is an easy task when you are already used to always purchase the same. But if we have to compare with each other, the task can be difficult. What do you have to take into account to buy an economical turbine, as well as lasting and effective?

In this post, we detail everything you need to know to buy a quality turbine and increase its useful life.

How a dental turbine works

First, we must know how a dental turbine works to know where more problems can be caused when working with them.

A dental turbine is a rotary instrument that is driven by compressing air directly through the hose of the dental unit through a coupling. Among all the rotary instruments, it is the one with the most speed (from 100,000 to 500,000), but the one with the lowest torque. The working speed is approximately half that of the free speed.
