Electric Handpieces

Here at Colfax Dental, we are devoted to providing top-notch care through the latest advancements and technologies. Whether we are providing routine-care or undergoing a more complex procedure, we provide our patients with high quality care with a knowledgeable staff and high-tech tools. When we perform common dental procedures like removing decay from a tooth, polishing a filling, or performing a cosmetic dental procedure, we utilize an electric handpiece.

There are two types of dental handpieces commonly used in dental offices: air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces have been rapidly replacing the traditional pneumatic or air-driven handpieces as they have been proven to provide superior performance. Electric handpieces offer smooth, constant torque without variations in speed like traditional air-driven ones do. Due to this consistency in performance, these electric tools have converted many practitioners over to using electric handpieces. Additionally, the electric version is quieter, providing a better and more pleasant experience for our patients.

If you’d like to learn more about our technology or have any questions, give us a call and our staff would be more than happy to speak with you.
