A dental chair is one of the most important pieces of equipment in a modern dental practice. It is designed to meet the needs of both the patient and the dentist to provide a smooth, comfortable experience. There are many different components that make up a dental chair, each of which has a specific purpose in a procedure.
A good dental chair will have a comfortable, cushioned seat that is designed to be able to accommodate patients of all sizes. It will also have a backrest that is adjustable and can be moved forward and backward. This allows the doctor to be close enough to access the patient’s mouth and head without having to hunch over the patient. This hunching can lead to serious musculoskeletal problems that have long-term health implications for the doctor.
It is important to choose a chair that will be easy to clean and disinfect after each use. This is especially important for dental hygiene and dental procedures that involve blood or other potentially infectious materials. It is often recommended to purchase a chair with built-in barriers that will help to keep the chair clean from contamination between patients.
There are three main types of dental chairs. They are categorized by the way they interact with a Dental Engine, which is either built into the chair or in some cases, a separate device that provides power, suction, and water to the dental chair. The control panels on the chair must be easily accessible, user-friendly and dependable. Dentists often want to know how many programmable presets are available for the chair and where these can be mounted around the operatory. DENTALEZ has multiple options for mounting these controls, including on the chair, on the assistant’s delivery system, or on the 12 o’clock delivery unit.
