Electric Handpieces

Traditional dental handpieces are extremely loud because they use an air turbine - similiar to those in airplane jet engines - to power the dental drill. Instead, Dr. Alex Shvartsman uses electric dental handpieces in order to make every patient's dental experience more pleasent.

The advantages of electric handpieces include:

  • Enhanced noise reduction.
  • No high-pitched air turbine whine.
  • Less chatter.
  • Ability to control RPMs.
  • Silence at low RPMs.


Most dental offices do not have electric handpieces because they are a very expensive initial purchase and are costly to repair. However, Dr. Shvartsman feels that the investment in electric handpieces is worthwhile, since it makes his patients' dental experiences more enjoyable.
