Electric handpieces are one of the many modern dental tools we use at River Valley Dental. There are two types of handpieces used for dental hygiene and dental procedures: air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces are much stronger than air-driven handpieces due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air. This allows your hygienist or dentist to remove plaque and decay at a faster pace, cutting down on the time it takes to complete a regular hygiene appointment or other dental procedure. In addition to speed, electric handpieces allow for a level of precision unavailable with air-driven tools used in the past.
At River Valley Dental, we use the best technology available in the dental industry today to ensure that our patients receive quality care that is safe, time-effective, and affordable. Our patients appreciate the speed and accuracy with which we are able to perform their dental procedures. If you have been uncomfortable visiting the dentist in the past, we encourage you to make an appointment to visit us. With the new advancements in dental technology, including electric handpieces, even those who have experienced discomfort or unease at the dentist will find that their experience is faster and more comfortable.
