CE: The Benefits of Cordless Prophy Handpieces to Help Prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders in Clinical Practice
Jason H. Goodchild, DMD
Because of the nature of clinical dentistry—precise and repetitive motions, static posture, sub-optimal ergonomics, and long work hours—all members of the clinical team are at risk for development of MSDs. Dental hygienists may be at an increased risk for MSDs compared to dentists and must practice preventive strategies to maintain hand and musculoskeletal health. Cordless prophy handpieces offer a meaningful innovation over corded predecessors and should be considered a worthwhile upgrade for the safe and ergonomic delivery of hygiene care.
