Modern dentistry has come a long way since the belt driven handpiece. Today, the high speed handpiece allows for the efficient and comfortable preparation of the tooth. There are basically two types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces provide for much stronger torque than air-driven handpieces. Since they do not use air to rotate the bur, the whirring sound, most often associated with the dental drill is almost completely eliminated. Most patients enjoy the advances of the modern dental operatory. They are spacious, open, unencumbering and quieter.
