Light Up Their Teeth, Not Their Eyes

Written by

The best dental light is one that allows you to see true colors, does not interfere with bonding procedures, and does not blind your patient. 

A crisp, concise light pattern with a defined edge is the calling card of a quality dental light. Cool-burning, long-life LED bulbs balanced to daylight color temperature between 5,500 degrees to 6,300 degrees Kelvin Color Temperature provide lighting that does not distort colors.

 The Benefits of LED Lights

Traditional light bulbs burn out quickly and emit heat. Colors are not true, making it difficult to match shades when necessary. Some traditional bulbs have poor focus, creating uneven lighting with dark and bright spots.

LED lighting, besides being more energy efficient, has a number of benefits that overcome the problems of traditional light bulbs.

  • No filament to break down or “burn out.”
  • LEDs produce less heat.
  • LEDs are brighter per watt of energy applied.
  • LED lifespan exceeds 50,000 hours

Taking Care of Hygiene

As in any medical office, your dental equipment requires regular sanitizing. The dental light should be designed for easy cleaning with the appropriate antibacterial solutions or heat.

For example, DentalEZ’s CORETM light has magnetically attached handles that can be removed and autoclaved. You can also remove the lens for cleaning with the appropriate solution.

Another innovation available on many lights is the ability to adjust the light intensity without touching the light itself. Hands-free light adjustment reduces the need to press touch pads or dimmer switches with contaminated latex gloves.

To answer ergonomic concerns, you should not need to shift or stand to turn your dental light on and off, nor strain to shift the light focus.

Intensity and Focus

LED lights typically come in arrays, eliminating the need for a special reflector within the lamp assembly and providing direct lighting to the operating field. As mentioned above, the light intensity on the CORE dental light can be adjusted with a hands-free sensor to 10,000, 20,000, and 30,000 lux.

For the best focus, your light should move 360 degrees and provide a crisp, rectangular light focus that does not stray into the patient’s eyes.

Appropriate lighting is essential to precision dentistry. Use as much care selecting a dental light as you do for your next drill.

Deliver Quality Dental Service with Your Dental Unit

Written by

One rule of patient comfort is never to let them see your tools. Another is to keep your joints and muscles from becoming damaged due to poor positioning of your equipment.

You need a delivery unit that can be ergonomically positioned while keeping instruments, syringes, and equipment out of the direct sight-line of the patient.

Positioning Your Dental Unit

The placement of the delivery unit impacts the way the dentist and technician work. Units can be placed to the rear of the patient, at the patient’s side, over the patient’s thorax, or over the patient’s head.

Rear, over-the-head, and over-the-thorax placements are all problematic. In each case, the dentist is forced to reach for tools out of range of vision and in a position that requires the muscles and joints to be stressed.

Over time, repetitive stress injuries, lower back problems, and other musculoskeletal problems appear, limiting the dentist’s working life.

You should not be required to shift your field of view while locating and retrieving instruments. In the meantime, your technician needs proximity to the most frequently used handpieces.

Potential mounting solutions include Magellan-mounting or mounting the unit to a fixed console that places it near the dentist's dominant side for left or right-handed dentistry. To increase productivity, your unit should be ideal for two- or four-handed practice. Select a unit with the brake-release handle on the side. A bonus is integrated dual access touch pads.

 Unit Design

The tray should lie securely in a groove-recessed border to prevent slipping. You do not want everything on the floor because you tried to move the unit or bumped it with an elbow. Be sure to have an adequate number of integrated handpiece holders available at the front of the unit. For aesthetic purposes, you can look for easy snap-on covers for unused holders. Place the air gauge where you can monitor pressure during procedures. A unit mounted on an aluminum flex arm is more stable and easy to position than one on a rigid arm or that is made of heavier material.

A separate assistant’s unit should be mounted to the rear and contain a centrally located solids collector. This unit is another opportunity to provide integrated touch-pad operation. The rear unit should be easily located wherever the assistant is sitting or standing. Look for a unit that was designed with extensive research and feedback from practicing dental hygienists and technicians.

The dental unit is the engine that drives treatment. It should have pride of ergonomic placement to enhance your ability to continue to perform.

If you are interested in learning more about the CORE delivery unit or any item in the CORE dental operatory, please visit www.dentalez.com/CORE, where you can view a video, download literature and schedule a CORE™ demo.

“Repetitive strain injuries are on the rise in dentistry. Many dentists/dental hygienists have been diagnosed with an MSD, and a majority have experienced some type of musculoskeletal pain in their shoulders and neck, hands and wrists, low back, or forearms and elbows.”
Colin Graham, Employer Ergonomic Services

A patient is in your chair for a brief time. You and your assistants are bent over the patient chair for hours every day. The patient goes home with no pain while yours grows with every movement you make because of the stress and strain on your body. It may be time to select a more ergonomic patient chair … for you, not your patients.

The patient’s comfort is an important aspect of their experience. However, you and your technicians must have easy access to the patient’s head without straining.

How to Select the Right Patient Chair and Dental Stool

The patient chair you choose can make a big difference to your body.

  • Make sure the patient chair, dentist’s stool, and delivery system align with the height of the dentist.
  • The height and backrest of the patient chair should remain neutral during procedures.
  • The patient chair should be lowered and reclined so the dentist can move freely without striking knees or thighs.
  • A small, thin headrest and narrow upper backrest allow the dentist to maintain a neutral posture and remain close to the patient. 

 All seating in the operatory must align with the dentist’s stature to prevent injury. A patient chair with adequate swivel rotation and lift allows you to get close to the patient’s head while maintaining good posture. Your knees are free to move without striking the chair frame.

 Durable Design

A quality patient chair is set on a hydraulic cantilever system and is made of a heavy-duty cast iron body. Weight is reduced with an aluminum cast chair back, base, armrest, and headrest. The back is wide, narrowing to the articulated headrest for access to the patient. The headrest is double-articulating that easily adjusts to the patient’s head. Armrests flip down so the patient can easily enter and exit the chair.

The CORE chair has a 30-degree arc of swivel, 15 degrees to the left and right of center. Control is through foot control or touch-pad, with programmable preset positions. Upholstery is a comfortable, easily cleaned material, such as Naugahyde, in a relaxing color to complement your operatory.  

The patient chair is the foundation, if you will, of comfort for your patients. However, the chair must fit you too so your practice continues to thrive.

  • Simple chair controls include auto return, last position, 3 preset controls and manual settings
  • Durable armrests drop down on both sides allowing easy patient entry and exit
