Electric Hand Piece


Most people that visit the dentist are familiar with the motorized brushes and other tools that are used to clean the teeth. These tools are responsible for a majority of the work done at the dentist office, so having high quality tools is essential to providing the care that patients will need.

As a pediatric dentist we understand the need to have a variety of electric handpieces that can be used on different patients. A wide range of tools can be used to suit different sized mouths, with a single goal — to maximize the efficiency of the cleaning while minimizing discomfort in patients.

The Process

There are a variety of electric handpieces that are used in dental offices today. Different heads can be placed on a motorized unit to address the needs of the patient, as the procedure moves forward.

A general dentist will use different tools to inspect and clean your teeth throughout your visit. Electric handpieces will typically have a variety of speeds that can be used to ensure that any excess plaque or other material in the mouth is sufficiently removed while ensuring that no damage or irritation is caused to the teeth or surrounding tissues.

Top Things to Remember

A pediatric dentist or specialized dentist will use different tools, but there are a few steps that must be taken to make sure that an electric hand piece is kept up-to-date.

  • Newer tools will have lower vibrations which will help to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  • Older models were known to create carbon dust that would eventually wear down the brushes, minimizing their efficiency. Newer models often focus on designs that are easy to clean, minimizing the amount of carbon dust they produce and making it easier to keep the unit clean so there is no build up over time.

The higher quality handpiece, the less maintenance it requires to keep it up and running. This means that the dentist can focus on keeping the handpiece clean instead of keeping it working.
