What is a High Speed Turbine Rebuild?
When your handpiece stops working, it is usually because the turbine bearings are worn and need replacement. Our turbine rebuild offers a more economical alternative to replacing the entire turbine every time. We carefully remove the old bearings and any other parts too worn to use. After a thorough cleaning, we install new bearings and o-rings, calibrate, test your handpiece, and return it to you running almost as good as new.
We exclusively use ceramic ball bearings in our high speed repairs. A ceramic ball is lighter, approximately 60%, and smoother than a comparable steel ball. These properties allow the ceramic ball to create less friction when operating at maximum speeds. The reduction in friction produced heat minimizes the wear on the bearing outer raceway. Ceramic balls are harder than steel balls offering better protection against damage from external contaminants or bearing wear debris. With proper maintenance, the ceramic ball bearings can yield a longer life span over traditional steel ball bearings.

What is an Autochuck Repair?
When the automatic chuck (pushbutton or lever) in your handpiece turbine stops gripping the bur safely you have two options. You can replace the entire turbine with a new turbine, or we can repair, or sometimes replace, just the autochuck and get it to meet factory specifications again. This is a separate repair from the turbine rebuild, and carries a separate six month warranty. If your bearings are in good enough condition then the only charge will be for the autochuck repair by itself. If we are not able to repair or replace your autochuck, we will then recommend a new turbine.
