The leading cause of failure in handpieces is insufficient or improper lubrication. It’s important to not only lubricate your handpiece, but to do so properly.
When lubricating your handpiece, be sure to:

- Lubricate your chuck every time it is sterilized
After lubricating, run the handpiece through the delivery unit tubing for 20-30 seconds to flush any excess lubricant out. If it appears discoloured, repeat the process until the flushed lubricant is clear.
