Electric Handpieces

Technology Electric Hand-pieces Timothy C. Adams, DDS, D.ACSDD, LVIM


The handpiece is one of the most commonly used dental instruments in practice today which 

is why it is important for Dr. Adams to use the best that is available. There are basically two 

types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Air driven are less expensive and have been 

around for decades. Air driven handpieces are also noiser leading to more stress in the chair

 and not recommended for patients who have dental anxiety. Dr. Adams uses Electric 

Handpieces because they are much stronger than air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air. This allows

 Dr. Adams to remove decay at a much faster pace which cuts down on the time it takes to complete a procedure, adding to patient 

comfort.  Electric handpieces produce smoother results and flexibility in the prep due to its stable speed. Dr. Adams' goal is to provide 

patients with a superior end result which is why Dr. Adams uses electric handpieces.
