The Basics: Types of Handpieces

Based on speed, there are two major types of dental handpieces, high speed dental handpiece and low speed handpiece. Based on design, a dental handpiece can be classified into two, Air-Driven Handpiece and Electric Handpiece. Air-Driven High-Speed Handpieces contain air-driven turbine inside. This generates the rotational motion of the dental handpieces. Electric Handpiece contains an electric motor driving the handpiece. The electric handpieces have a consistent speed as a result of which they tend to provide a smooth and more precise cutting edge. The fixed speed of the handpiece helps with high flexibility in preparation. Some electric handpieces have control over the torque when the speed is minimum, for endo procedures.
