Have you ever wondered what is behind the work of a dentist?

The work of a dentist in general depends on factors related to ergonomics, a science that seeks to organize work in such a way as to achieve maximum performance and comfort with a minimum of physical and psychological effort.

Dentists are used to some of these conditions:

  • Field or small work areas, with complex and difficult to access areas, precision work that requires a high concentration of technology.
  • Adequate lighting and the correct working position are essential.
  • Manual dexterity is required to perform truly fine and precise operations.
  • Very specific equipment, materials, and instruments.
  • Continuous decision-making process.

All this usually leads to forced and inappropriate postures and physical attitudes. Over time, various health risks can appear, such as muscle pain, back problems, visual discomfort, etc.

When we use magnification systems, from the simplest to the most advanced, we are also promoting ergonomic work and correct postural hygiene, avoiding neck and back pain. All this is reinforced when we also incorporate lighting systems that help to obtain clearer and more precise images.

What do we recommend?

It is important to assume adequate work postures, consider the layout of the consultation and the use of equipment that complies with an ergonomic design according to the needs.

It is recommended that both the dentist and his auxiliary team perform muscle stretching and short rest breaks between one patient and another.

The way of sitting on the stool is important and that the equipment favors the performance of movements with the hands, arms, shoulders, or spine without adding an additional load.

But not only the dental stool determines the dental professional’s posture, the actual dental unit is of great importance too.

One of the most ergonomic dental chairs at the moment is the S LINE by Ancar. Especially the S5 range. For example: there is open space under the chairs, without obstacles, allowing total freedom of leg movements for the dentist and assistant. The instrument poles are flexible, with 3D movement, for less strain on the wrist, fingers and shoulders. The instrument holders of the hanging hoses and cart version are adjustable so the dentist does not need to turn the head to put them back in to place.

The perception of being in front of a technologically advanced treatment unit, customizable and different to the point of making it unique, is transferred to the actual design and aesthetics of the practice.
