There are two main types of dental handpieces: air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces use a motor to spin the bur, while air-driven handpieces use air. Electric handpieces are much stronger, allowing your dentists at Brighton Family Dentistry to remove decay at a faster pace. Thanks to electric handpieces, Dr. Carroll can complete your dental treatment in a shorter amount of time! We invite you to call or visit our Salt Lake City, Utah dental office today to learn more about how electric handpieces improve your dental experience.
