Precision Dentistry (Electric Handpieces)

At McQuiston Dental, our main priorities are your health and comfort, and we strive to provide a positive, enjoyable experience each time you visit. We utilize advanced technology to enhance the precision and efficiency of your dental care, and electric handpieces assist us in achieving this endeavor.

Handpieces are often used to remove damaged or decayed portions of a tooth to prepare for the placement of a dental restoration, such as a crown or filling. Electric handpieces are driven by a motor, making them stronger, faster, and more efficient than air-driven handpieces. They can remove decay at a faster rate, which reduces your treatment time and allows you to spend less time in the dental chair. In addition, they are smoother and quieter, providing you with a more comfortable experience. Our dentist, Dr. Scott, uses electric handpieces to provide you with precision dentistry and ensure your dental care is comfortable, quick, and will last for years to come. Electric handpieces allow us to provide you with extraordinarily precise results and greater comfort following your restorative procedure.
