Rounding up some of the top dental handpieces available today.
There are few pieces of equipment more associated with dentists and dental care than the dental handpiece. Most patients refer to them as drills, but in the hands of a trained clinician, these precision rotary systems are used for much more than simply poking holes in things.
Whether it’s an air-turbine system or an electric system, the highspeed handpiece is the foundation of most restorative procedures. It is used to carve away diseased and damaged tissue and to carefully sculpt the remaining healthy tissue to properly support and retain a restoration. The hygiene department works with their own specialized handpieces designed for comfortable and efficient prophy appointments. Specialists also make use of specialized handpieces designed for their specific tasks including oral surgery and endodontics.
The function of the handpiece has not changed significantly over the years, but their design and features have been innovated and improved in almost every way. Modern dental handpieces are lighter than those of the past, and while they are capable of even more powerful and precise operations, they are also being designed to produce less of the noise that is so disconcerting to patients. Many newer handpieces are designed with smaller heads to make access to all areas of the mouth less challenging and to improve clinician visibility. Regardless of the type of handpiece you prefer to use, the latest models offer an enhanced experience for clinicians and patients alike.
If you’re in the market for an upgrade to your handpiece spend some time looking through the products and details we’ve collected in the next several pages. You’ll find details on some of the latest handpiece models, and other details to help you find the next piece to fit your hand.
