Choosing a Dental Chair: What to Consider

Choosing a Dental Chair: What to Consider

When you start your practice as a dentist, the first thing that you need to consider is purchasing all the equipment. A dental chair is, no doubt, one of the most important parts of this equipment. Its characteristics determine several crucial features of your future work like the following ones:

  • Your personal comfort when providing patients with dental care.
  • The comfort of your patients who need to stay still for a long time     during the procedure.
  • Your reputation, after all, as when you use top-notch equipment, patients are more loyal to you.

Thus, choosing a dental chair is the #1 task for a dentist who decides to open his private clinic or parlour.

What Types of Dental Chairs Do Exist

Depending on the type of construction, dental chairs are hydraulic and electromechanical. The second option is considered more reliable and durable, moreover, it requires less effort from the doctor to adjust the desired position of the chair.

Besides, there are various models according to their dimensions, type of upholstery, design of the seat, etc.

What Are the Most Important Things to Consider for a Dental Chair

Before you choose the model and the manufacturer, please, answer the following questions to make the right choice in the end.

  1. What budget do you have? There are lots of options available in the     market and the prices could differ several times for them. Of course, if you have no money limits, it’s great. But do not overpay for the dental chair and at the same time, do not buy the cheapest option as it often is less reliable and comfortable. It is better to lease it if you have a lack of budget or to get a middle-class model with standard equipment that will serve you for a couple of years.
  2. Consider the space of your consulting room. Choose the dental chair’s dimensions according to the available space where you will install it.
  3. Pay attention to details. For a good dental chair, an ergonomically     shaped seat is important so that the patient can sit on it in a     comfortable position. It is also important to consider the type and     quality of the upholstery because with intensive use it suffers first of all. Another essential detail is the presence of folds and gaps on the seat of the chair since various things of patients often get stuck in them.
  4. The supply of instruments is also important. And it all depends on your personal preferences. Some doctors prefer the top feed, which is     carried out by means of return mechanisms. Others are more     comfortable working behind a dental chair with a bottom feed of     instruments.
  5. Which company to choose? If you want to get a model that is perfect for your needs, it is better to contact the manufacturer of dental chairs directly. A good manufacturer will be able not only to choose the best option for you but also to customize it if necessary. Of course, such a dental chair will cost more than standard options, but the quality and speed of your work with it will increase. With a limited budget, you can limit yourself to the standard model of the cheaper segment. Eventually, when you’ve paid for your business, you can replace it with a more expensive option.
  6. The documentation that comes with the kit is very important. Be sure to ask for product registration certificates and quality certificates.

By following these simple tips, we hope that it will be easy for you to select and buy a dental chair that will meet your requirements and serve you for a long time flawlessly providing both you and your patients with the most comfort.
