Electric Handpieces
 

There are basically two types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces are much stronger than air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to air.  This allows the doctor to remove decay at a faster pace.  This will cut down on the time it takes to complete a procedure.
