The Young Hygiene Handpiece has been, by far, the easiest handpiece I’ve used. Compared to other handpieces I have tried, it runs smoothly with very little noise, and it feels as though it was form-fitted to my hand.
The handpiece is very comfortable to hold, and it’s easy to maneuver in the oral cavity! The handpiece does not put stress on my hand or wrist muscles while I use it. The engraved grip is adequate for easy handling, and the handpiece has just the right amount of angulation.
The handpiece is compatible with the Classic Vera angles and the webbed Contra Elite Original angles from Young Dental, which slip on and off with ease. In terms of lubricating, it isn’t any different from other handpieces I’ve tried.
Pros: Great angulation, ease of manipulation, runs quietly and efficiently, good gripping grid
Cons: This is not necessarily a con, but I had to train myself to place the handpiece in the holder on the unit without knocking or dropping it on the floor. Old habits are hard to change ...
Overall, I thought this handpiece was amazing in action!
