Don't be fooled by fakes
The dental industry is also increasingly struggling with counterfeit products. In particular, counterfeit dental turbine handpieces as well as straight and contra-angle handpieces are sold via various online platforms. It is often difficult to distinguish between original and fake products at first glance. The deviations in the external appearance are therefore minimal.
An urgent warning must be issued against the use of counterfeit medical products. The so-called fakes lack essential product details, quality features and legally required test marks and approvals. Treatments therefore represent a health and legal risk for both the patient and practitioner. In addition, the cheap purchases are also an economic risk in the long term. The service life and functionality of fake products are significantly limited compared to the original, repairs and additional services are usually not possible.
