Purpose: This study was to investigate usage satisfaction of multi type handpiece with equipped air-jet function Methods: The subjects of this study through the survey was conducted for fifty-nine dental technicians in Daegu and Gyeongsangbukdo from the May 7 to 19, after the June 23 to July 4 2014. The survey was about the function and quality through user testing environment by cutting zirconia specimens using appliance for zirconia. The collected date was analyzed by the statistical program SPSS Win Ver 19.0 for the satisfaction of handpiece and control system. To test for significance on each item, p<0.05 had been decided a standard. General characteristics and relationship between the handpiece and control system was performed correlation analysis. Results: The results of this study is as follows. 35 dental technicians had 1~2 years career in zirconia part as the highest 59.3%, 95% of subjects expected that the prospects for the zirconia material have bright prospects. The satisfaction of multi type handpiece and control system design and function showed a significant difference. Subjects satisfied with the design and function of the multi type showed negative correlation with those of Standard. The satisfaction of multi type handpiece showed 3.37 points of air jet, 3.05 points of noise level, 2.69 points of water flow rate, and 1.98 points of cruise function. Sample differences in all parameters showed a statistically higher difference. Conclusion: High-speed cutting mechanism of multi-type is recommended working with zirconia materials and the multi-type unit combined handpiece motor, air-turbine and air-gun will be expected the increase of user due to the high satisfaction of air jet.
