High speed dental handpieces are the devices that practitioners probably reach for more than any other for restorative dentistry.

If you’re just starting out in practice, buying the best you can afford is a good investment. If you haven’t upgraded for a while, it’s worth having a look at what’s now on the market.

The newer handpieces offer features that are great for both practitioner and patient safety and comfort.

Types of high-speed dental handpieces

High speed handpieces are made with one of two systems—electrical and air turbine driven. The electric models generally have up to 200,000 RPM speed capacity, with consistent torque, however they tend to be quieter, and cause less vibration. Air turbine driven handpieces offer much higher speed, up to 400,00 rpm, with variable torque.

  • Common uses for high-speed handpieces
  • High speed dental handpieces are used for many purposes:
  • The removal of tooth enamel and tissue.
  • To prepare teeth for fillings and/or crowns.
  • To remove parts of a tooth where there may be a need to create greater margins.
  • To section out a tooth during oral surgery
  • What the latest models offer

Here at William Green, we have the latest in Bein Air Turbo technology – air turbine driven high speed dental handpieces.

Handpieces such as the Bora 2 offer built-in lights to aid vision and lower vibration and decibel levels than ever before. The new design of the Bora 2 offers even better performance, whilst retaining the legendary reliability which has characterised previous versions since 1991.

MORE ROBUST. The head of the Bora 2 is made entirely from stainless steel. This increases its durability, making it more resistant to impacts. MORE POWERFUL. With a 20% increase in both power and torque, the Bora 2 allows you to cut twice as fast. Save precious time! The device incorporates patented technology to prevent overheating, reducing the chance of burns to the patient.

Bein Air’s bur-locking and rotation drive mechanism reduces vibration and offers greater stability. This is just one of the reliable, high quality handpieces we offer at William Green.

From the moment we started designing the Nova handpiece, we had one ambition – not to compromise… thanks to the small head, the slim handle, its lightness, its low noise level and its extreme durability, it is quite simply the most advanced handpiece on the market.

The Nova’s small head and slim handle enhance your field of vision and guarantee easier access to the back of the mouth. The Nova has the smallest head and the slimmest handle in the entire Bien-Air handpiece range.
