Why should dentists use electric dental handpiece as much as possible now?
Many dentist know, the electric drive handpiece have follows advantages:
1, Cutting power is much bigger;
2, Speed is more stable;
3, easy to change rotation way;
4, easy to adjust speed;
Now I want to introduce they have other very important advantage:
Reducing aerosol production
During this COVID-19 virus time, every one need better protection, special in dental clinic. When dentist use handpiece to treat the patient’s teeth, many aerosol be produced. The aerosols can permeate the dentist and the patient, and even the entire room. If the patient carries the virus, the virus will be transmitted to the entire room along with the aerosol. Dentists and their assistants can become infected by inhaling viral aerosols. Therefore, we must control the spread of aerosols to avoid the infection of doctors and assistants. We can use an aerosol aspirator to suck and filter and disinfect the generated aerosol, or we can reduce the generation of aerosol from the source, such as using electric drive dental handpiece as much as possible.
This is the situation when ordinary pneumatic high-speed dental handpieces are working, and you can see a lot of aerosol production; this is the case of a 1:5 speed-increasing contra angle working on an electric motor, and you can see just a small amount of aerosol production.
Experiments show that electric dental handpiece produce far less aerosols than pneumatic dental handpiece during treatment, which greatly reduces the risk of doctor-patient infection.
For the safety of dentists, we strongly recommend that you choose our electric motor and red ring high-speed contra angle!
