The benefits of our electric handpieces are enormous. A typical air-driven dental drill creates the noise equivalent of a household garbage disposal but our electric handpieces sound a little louder than the whirring of the fan in your computer.
Electric handpieces provide our patients with better treatment than conventional air driven drills since the electric handpieces are monitored by a digital computer, their speed is constantly measured and adjusted to provide optimal efficiency, meaning the dentist can work more efficiently while minimizing trauma to the tooth.
Any time a drill is placed on a tooth, heat is generated and when a tooth gets too hot during a filling or a crown it becomes sensitive or turns into a toothache! Electric handpieces provide superior water delivery to keep the tooth as cool as possible during decay removal, thus reducing the chances the tooth will be sensitive after a filling or a crown.
