We use state-of-the-art electric handpieces in our dental practice. These offer many benefits both to patients and to our dental team. First, they are quieter than the air-driven handpieces used by the majority of dentists in the U.S. The electric motors do not create that loud turbine noise that can be disconcerting for patients and can even damage our hearing over time!
The electric handpieces have LED lights to illuminate the area being worked on, which allows for better visibility in your mouth. They cause less vibration than the standard air-driven handpieces, and patients can actually feel the difference. This also means less "chatter" when cutting through various substances, such as metal crowns. Electric handpieces have more torque, reducing procedure time while increasing accuracy.
Our commitment to patient comfort includes staying up-to-date on advances in dental technology, and we are proud to include the latest in electric handpieces in our dental toolkit to give you a better in-chair experience.
