As our living standards continue to improve, the diversity of diets is also developing rapidly. While people enjoy delicious food, they are also paying more and more attention to the protection of their teeth. They will go to the dentist when their teeth are uncomfortable or for regular check-ups. So, what kind of modern dental chair is the special chair they sit on during these appointments that is different from our daily chairs?
These machines mostly exist in township health clinics and individual clinics with limited conditions for simple dental treatments. Electric dental chairs are mainly used for oral surgery and inspection and treatment of oral diseases. In large hospitals' specialized dental departments, electric dental chairs are currently widely used. According to treatment needs, by manipulating control buttons, the dental chair can complete actions including rise, fall, flex, recline, and reset. Its main structure has eight parts, and the entire machine's baseplate is fixed to the ground and cannot be moved at will. It is connected to the upper part of the dental chair through its bracket, so the dental chair's movements are controlled by the control switch on the backrest. When the dentist conducts treatment and inspection, they control the switch to start the electric motor and drive the transmission mechanism to work, making the corresponding parts of the dental chair move. Compared with advanced equipment today, the old-fashioned chairs before were usually just seats without doctors and assistants. Some even did not have sputum cups or saliva suction devices, which was relatively inconvenient for operation and had become a true "dental chair" in name only.
In rural areas, urban communities, and individual dental clinics, the majority still use these simple dental chairs, although these chairs are relatively simple, they can meet the general dental treatment needs.
The development of dental chairs is mainly based on the design principles of convenience, comfort, safety, and hygiene, and can rely on the physician's individual habits to set different treatment positions, such as upper and lower jaw teeth and rescue positions. They can also be programmatically stored for ease of use by the doctor next time. More advanced modern dental chairs usually come with a fully automatic control console, which makes it more convenient to adjust the chair position. The doctor can control it by foot during treatment process without the need to stop the instrument operation, achieving the opening and closing actions of water and air guns, making patients more suitable for treatment. They are also equipped with anti-skid doctor seats and multi-functional foot pedal control devices. Some dental chairs are also equipped with various directional cold lights, powerful low-noise vacuum negative pressure pumps that can separate gas and liquid, with high suction and low noise.
