Electric Vs. Air Handpieces

Electric handpieces have been the preferred choice of handpieces by dental professionals in Europe and Asia for decades and in recent years they are growing in popularity in North America. However, the air driven handpiece remains the popular workhorse of North American offices. So what are the benefits that electric handpieces have over air driven that are gaining them such notoriety? The Fall issue of Dental Practice Management (DPM), Canada’s leading business & lifestyle magazine for the dentist, outlines the features of electric handpieces and the many benefits they have over air driven in the article entitled, Electric Handpieces: Profiting From Increased Efficiency. In summary, DPM outlines the following key features: Electric handpieces usually require a higher upfront cost, but DPM suggests the short and long-term benefits of increased efficiency will out weigh these costs in the long run. Overall, electric handpieces are faster, more precise, and consistent, providing greater comfort for the doctor and patient.

Top Rated Electric Handpieces

The September issue of Dental Products Report (DPR) includes a new approach to product evaluations. Reality Research lab, a private dental research lab, and Dental Advisor, a leading evaluation organization and research publication, provided their “Top Choices” for Electric Handpieces based on 3rd party evaluations. Among the Dental Advisor’s Top Choices....the NuTorque® from StarDental®. As stated by Dental Advisor, “Compared with air-turbine technology, electric systems provide a different tactile feel, weight, size and maintenance protocol. Though they are traditionally more expensive than air-driven systems, they are typically lower maintenance and provide versatility for many clinical procedures.” Some of the NuTorque comments from Dental Advisor consultants…
  • “Best electric handpiece I have used.”
  • “Versatile; very easy to change from endo to restorative.”
  • “Very quiet.”
Refer to the September issue of Dental Products Report for the full report and visit our website for additional details on all of StarDental’s NuTorque Electric Handpiece choices.

Jablow on NuTorque

NuTorque_Unit We are pleased to introduce Dr. Practice’s first guest blogger, Dr. Martin Jablow. A long-time supporter and advocate of many DentalEZ® products, Dr. Jablow will discuss the features and benefits of using an electric handpiece system, particularly, the NuTorque® Programmable Electric Handpiece The NuTorque® Programmable Electric Handpiece- Making Restorative Dentistry Easier. Written by Dr. Martin Jablow Take a look at the history of electric dental handpieces, and you will find that they have now come full circle. High-speed, belt-driven electric handpieces and dental drills were first introduced in the year 1875. Electric was pretty much the de facto standard in dentistry for nearly 100 years. Then, around 1960, air turbine drills became a stronghold among dentists due to their smooth, quiet operation (at that time, electric handpieces were notoriously noisy), and excellent cutting ability. The electric handpiece was unceremoniously relegated to the back of the dental cabinet, all but forgotten in favor of its pneumatic counterpart. However, with innovations in micro-electric motors to drive the rotors at high speed with less friction, electric handpieces are currently experiencing a revival in the dental operatory. Other innovations, such as computerized torque and RPM control—benefits that can’t be had with air drills—are helping to make a strong argument in favor of electric handpieces, especially for applications such as endodontic treatment and precision cutting and shaping for crown and bridge procedures. Electric handpiece advantages Whereas the air-driven turbine is known for its caries removal and sheer cutting abilities, electric handpieces, such as the NuTorque Programmable Electric Handpiece by StarDental® (a Division of DentalEZ Group), provides maximum flexibility for a wide range of  common procedures, such as endo, implant, oral surgery, and caries removal, too. It’s extremely quiet at any speed. I like that, because it avoids “noise fatigue” for me and my staff, and we all know patients don’t like the sound of a drill to begin with, so the quieter the better. True to its name, the NuTorque electric handpiece provides plenty of torque at all speeds for a constant, consistently smooth cutting action. When force is applied, there is little to no reduction in drill speed. Vibrations (vibrations contribute to the sensation of pain) are virtually eliminated throughout the power-band; likewise, there is no bur chatter. The NuTorque handpiece also features a small head, an easy push-button autochuck for bur changes; quick and simple connections (universal E-type coupling) with 360-degree rotation; and a wide speed range from 100 to 200,000 RPM.  There are many handpiece attachments with different gear ratios, so as to provide the proper handpiece for the job, whether it be caries removal, endo or implant placement.  A handpiece with a ratio of 1:5 can run at 200,000 RPM and is perfect for crown preparations. With a simple push of a button you can change the RPM’s and precision cut a bevel at 40,000 RPM’s. Weighty issues and price concerns are not warranted Electrics are always going to be heavier than pneumatics, simply due to the number of parts required in the head and handpiece body. But we’re talking grams here, so weight is a relative issue. To put it in perspective, 1 gram is about the weight of a penny. Also, the bulk of the handpiece’s internal components are housed in the programming unit/base, and as lighter metals and micromotors are being developed and incorporated into the design, electric handpieces can only get lighter. To address the weight issue—and turn it into a non-issue—the NuTorque electric handpiece is engineered to be extremely well-balanced during use. The center of balance of a handpiece is one of the most crucial aspects of how well it feels, and also the primary contributing factor to wrist fatigue. The NuTorque is exceptionally well-balanced and feels much lighter than its already svelte 98 grams. Another perceived disadvantage of electric handpieces is the price. Electrics are more expensive than air turbines; but then again, look at what you’re getting with an electric: a very versatile and flexible handpiece that is suitable for virtually any procedure (and you don’t have to buy additional motors for endo and implants) you’re faced with on a daily basis. Add in (or rather, subtract) the decreased maintenance costs and longer life of electric compared to air-driven, and the air vs. electric cost issue is a wash. Why own an electric handpiece? There are a number of reasons to switch to an electric handpiece. Stop using your dry slow speed handpiece for caries removal and cut at slow speeds using water to flush the preparation just as you do with an air driven high speed handpiece. This improves visibility and saves you time. You don’t have to switch handpieces to go from high speed to low speed, just change the attachment and speed of the motor. Changing speeds is as simple as pressing a button on the small touch screen controller. Noise reduction is a definite motivating factor. It’s easy to appreciate the quiet operation compared to the high-pitched whine of a pneumatic drill. Margin finishing and the preparation of smooth bonding surfaces are applications that are well suited to the smooth, vibration-free power provided by electric handpieces—a benefit any dentist can appreciate. For endodontists, an electric is a must-have in every operatory, as rotary and step-back endo procedures are easily accomplished with the use of an electric handpiece. Electric handpieces also allow auto reverse and auto forward options. Above all, I prefer electrics because of their versatility and ease of use in the operatory. Because they are programmable and customizable, it’s easy to establish preset speed and torque settings that allow switching from one kind of procedure to the next with a single touch on the control panel. Electric handpieces are not the same as they were just a few short years ago. They are much easier to use, cut more efficiently, produce a more precise cut and are a pleasure to use.
