As the hub for most air or electric-powered dental instruments, delivery systems are necessary equipment for every operation. Designed to provide easy access to your handpieces, air/water syringes, vacuum, and more, a delivery system is a key consideration in designing an efficient operatory. The first step to choosing dental delivery systems is whether you want a chair or base mounted unit or a portable delivery unit. Chair or base mounted units can be rear, side, ellipse, or over the patient. Typical dental delivery systems have automatic activation for at least three handpieces, a self-contained waterline with asepsis tubing and purge system, airflow control, and a control panel with wet/dry foot control. Some dental delivery systems can integrate various accessories like fiber-optic systems, intraoral cameras, x-ray viewers, lighting, and touchpads. There are numerous products to choose from, be sure your vendor offers an extensive warranty, is available for any questions during implementation, and offers technical support.
