Abstract

Dental handpieces are often considered the workhorses of the dental practice, and they have a significant impact on the level of quality dentistry provided to patients. As restorative materials continue to evolve and an increasing number of patients seek out restorative dentistry, clinicians may question whether or not to change their handpiece system. This webinar will address several key areas to consider, such as reliability and consistency, when comparing air driven and electric dental handpiece systems.
