The benefits of our electric handpieces are enormous. First, they are quiet! A typical air driven dental drill creates the noise equivalent of a household garbage disposal. Our electric handpieces however sound just a little louder than the whirring of the fan in your computer.

Electric handpieces also provide our patients with better treatment than conventional air driven drills. Because electric handpieces are monitored by a digital computer, their speed is constantly measured and adjusted to provide optimal efficiency, meaning that the dentist can work faster while doing little trauma to the tooth compared to air driven drills.

Any time a drill is placed on a tooth, heat is generated. A tooth that has gotten too hot during a filling or a crown becomes sensitive or turns into a tooth ache! Electric handpieces provide superior water delivery to keep the tooth as cool as possible during decay removal, thus reducing the chances that the tooth will be sensitive after a filling or a crown.
