The Dental Hand Piece Becomes Generic

The term ‘generic’ has been bandied about for quite some time by those health and wellness advocates who affirm the need to be more sustainable and cost-effective during the carrying out of medical and/or clinical procedures, as well as in the event of issuing prescribed medications. Even though the medications are deemed to be generic, they still need to be prescribed. And the prescription can only always be made by a qualified, certified and licensed medical practitioner.

The same criteria will apply in the use of (generic) dental handpieces. Only a qualified dentist or orthodontist can utilize such hand pieces. Today’s dental hand pieces in use are not only generic, they are rather sophisticated tools, if not quite advanced in terms of the technologies it has at its disposal. The very fact that such hand pieces are now sustainable and cost-effective can already be seen from its size.

The dentist’s surgery space no longer needs to be taken up by those large and rather archaic looking medical machines that some of the older readers may be familiar with. Having the use of smaller but sophisticated medical instruments cuts down the need for a large surgical space. The private medical practitioner is now able to reduce costs generally expended towards the renting or leasing of required rooms.

Even the reception and/or receiving area of the doctor’s rooms can be reduced in size. That may have something to do with the fact that the practitioner’s turnaround times are a lot quicker and appointments can therefore be scheduled in a more efficient manner. One of the reasons for the quicker turnaround is owing to the use of laser technology. This technology is now transferred to the small, hand-held medical instrument as well.
