What to Look for in a Dental Chair
Dental chairs are made to support the patient during their procedure — from teeth cleanings and X-rays through a root canal or oral surgery. Considering this, the chair needs to be adjustable. Specifically, it should be able to recline to a number of positions. Your dental chair should also be able to integrate with your operatory. To achieve this, elements like tubes, bowls and other equipment for cleanings and more complex procedures are designed to be attached to the chair. Finally, dentists must be able to position themselves with ease from any angle around the chair to work on the patient.
As you think about upgrading your practice’s dental chair, look for the following:
Power controls that can be easily adjusted with the push of a button, touchscreen or joystick-like control — preferably, look for a chair that can be raised and lowered to reduce potential repositioning.
Chair upholstery options — along with aesthetics, look for a material that’s easy to clean and sterilize.
The type of cushioning each seat offers your patients, including for comfort and support — think about both the body and the headrest.
Ergonomics, including how easily you and your staff will be able to treat and operate on a patient.
Armrests and chair width, and how easily the patient will be able to get on and off the chair and remain in position during treatment.
