Electric dental handpieces are devices by dentist to perform various procedures such as cavity preparation, crown preparation, decay removal, and endodontics. Electric dental handpieces utilizes electric motor, which is attached to a shaft with gears and these gears are attached with bur (part that performs actual cutting). Whereas, air driven dental handpiece run on compressed air that rotates the turbine, which rotates the bur. These electric handpieces have several advantages over air driven dental handpieces such as consistent speed and torque. Electric dental handpieces offer speed control (RPM from 100 to 2, 00000) and higher torque (greater cutting power), and produces less noise and less vibration, hence does not produce heat in the operating area. Other advantages include greater accessibility, more precise operation, and no malfunction of turbine as compared to air driven handpiece. Click To Read More On Electric Dental Handpiece Market
High prevalence of oral diseases is expected to drive growth of the electric dental handpiece market
Rising prevalence of oral diseases is expected to propel growth of the electric dental hand piece market. According to FDI World Dental Federation’s Oral Health Atlas, 2015, oral disease affected 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay that impacts approximately 44% of world’s population.
