Your health and comfort are our top priorities. We are dedicated to providing you with a positive and enjoyable dental experience each time you visit our office. Our dental technology, including electric handpieces, assists us in providing you with the best possible care. Our dentist and team are proud to utilize electric handpieces to ensure that your visit is as comfortable and efficient as possible.
Handpieces are used to remove the decayed and damaged portion of a tooth in preparation for a dental restoration, such as a dental crown or filling. There are two commonly used types of dental handpieces: electric handpieces and air-driven handpieces. Electric handpieces are driven by a motor rather than compressed air, making them stronger than air-driven handpieces. Because electric handpieces are stronger, they allow our dentist to remove the decayed portion of the tooth at a quicker rate, providing you with a shorter visit. Another benefit of electric handpieces is that they are quieter and smoother, so your treatment will be more comfortable and pleasant. We welcome you to contact our friendly office today to learn more about electric handpieces and how they can enhance your dental experience. We look forward to speaking with you soon!
