Dental Vacuums and Compressor Systems: Your Power Team Behind the Scenes

Your dental compressed air and vacuum systems may be out of sight, but they should never be out of mind. Selecting the right dental compressor and vacuum as your mechanical room ‘power team’ helps you provide quality patient care and boosts the overall productivity of your dental office. 

Function & Efficiency

Dental vacuum pump capacity, compressor power, and the design of your mechanical room can make or break the function and efficiency of your entire office.

Independent Dental helps ensure that you not only have the proper equipment, but also that the compressor works in coordination with your vacuum system, to achieve quality airflow and noise reduction. Working with an experienced dental equipment supplier like Independent Dental is also important to reduce excess heat, avoid premature wear on your equipment, and improve handpiece performance.

Things to Consider When Buying Dental Compressors & Vacuum Systems Online

The dental air compressor powers many of the most important tools for your dental office, including: 3/1 syringes, chair valves, delivery units, dental drills, dental handpieces, dental scalers and more. The more tools you power, the stronger the compressor you'll need.

Power & Pressure

Your air compressor should have the proper pressure capacity and produce high-quality air, which ensures the safety of your patients, and prolongs the life of your tools. Be sure to exceed your equipment pressure requirements, as too little pressure may damage the tools you're running. Moist or unclean air from a bad compressor can damage operatory tools by corroding, contaminating, and/or decreasing their precision; rendering them unusable.


For proper function of your mechanical room, choose equipment from trusted vacuum and dental air compressor manufacturers - and a supplier who is highly rated for service, quality, and a strong maintenance record. This ensures your equipment will work consistently and properly during procedures, while keeping your handpieces in good, working order.
