Dr. Lou Graham says there is one big question for clinicians when it comes to handpieces: electric or air?

With the technological advancements that have come with the industry's electric handpieces, Graham discusses with Dr. John Flucke what the big perks are when considering electric.

In the 90s, Dr. Flucke evaluated many electric handpieces and says he always went directly back to air driven. That's because older electric handpieces were extremely heavy and simply weren't reliable.

But, he notes, those were the electric handpieces of the past. dental supplier UK

Dr. Flucke says present-day electric handpieces are not anything like their past counterparts: Now, they are light and ergonomic, reliable when using, have simple maintenance, and provide an amount of torque that is "unbelievable."

Dr. Flucke uses both Bien-Air and KaVo handpiece units in his practice. http://www.fdidentist.co.uk/category-1865-b0-Dental-Curing-Light.ht...

"Bien-Air has a controller box that mounts on your dental unit that you can see and literally you can go in and select caries removal and it will actually dial down the handpiece and only puts it at a certain RPM. It allows you to be very selective in exactly what you're doing," Flucke says of his Bien-Air Handpiece unit, which, even with high torque, allows him to easily dial down for procedures such as caries removal.

"I haven't had failures [with handpieces] like I used to have in the old days. These things run."
