Electric Handpieces Continue to Cause Burns

A rip of the old electron to Kathy Kincaide and the crew at Dr. bicuspid.com for reporting on this. This article discusses that, despite our best efforts, the FDA continues to receive reports of burns from electric handpieces.

This problem, unfortunately, is nothing new. In this article from Dental Products Report a while back, I discuss the reasons behind this and some strategies to help prevent it.

The bottom line is, if you use electric handpieces, you have to be aware of the potential for these problems. Maintenance is the only method to prevent it!
