Dentistry -- Powder jet handpieces and powders

ISO 20608:2018 specifies the general requirements, test methods, manufacturer's information, marking and packaging, independently of the design of the powder jet handpieces (see Figure 1).

ISO 20608:2018 applies to powder jet handpieces and their associated powders for use in the field of dentistry. They are used on patients to remove dental debris, discolourations and plaque and to clean and polish teeth where abrasion is a side effect.

ISO 20608:2018 is also applicable to powder jet handpieces and their associated powders that are used in dentistry for air driven abrasion, e.g. minimally invasive cavity preparation, preparation of surfaces for adhesives and for the removal of cement residues where abrasion is part of the desired outcome.

ISO 20608:2018 is not applicable for the dental units that are employed to supply the powder jet handpieces.

ISO 20608:2018 is not applicable to dental prophylaxis handpieces (contra angles), or electrically driven plaque removers (scalers) or multifunctional handpieces (syringes).
