The Young Hygiene Handpiece is constructed with a Reverse Radius™ silhouette, which is curved rather than straight to fit the clinician’s hand. The engraved matte grip rotates 360°, reducing the need to shift during polishing. The handpiece nosecone and motor detach into two pieces. Prior to sterilization, the collet can be cleared of any debris when necessary, and the handpiece should be lubricated.
The Young Hygiene Handpiece is made in the USA and has a two-year warranty.
The Young Hygiene Handpiece is lightweight and has excellent ergonomics. Dental hygienists noted decreased hand fatigue, as the angled connector kept the tubing in a more passive position. For some users, a period of acclimation was necessary to find the proper hand position, and some would have liked a slightly longer handpiece. The swivel rotates freely once users find the correct position related to the connector angle.
The Young Hygiene Handpiece runs smoothly and quietly. Disposable prophy angles are easy to install and remove, yet remain stable during operation. The matte finish provides good grip and is easy to clean.
