The sounds made by many pieces of dental equipment, especially drills, can make for an uncomfortable appointment for some people. If you are one of them, call Agave Dental Care at 915-833-0303. Our dentists, Dr. Tony Kasallis and Dr. Stephen Sticht, and our team use electric handpieces in El Paso, Texas, for a quieter visit.
You may be planning a visit to our office for a root canal treatment, filling, veneer, crown or other procedure that requires removing a portion of tooth material. The sounds, smells and even sensations produced by a traditional dental drill can create an unpleasant experience for some people. If this problem is keeping you from visiting our dentist for a treatment you need, we have the solution: electric handpieces.
Electric handpieces are powered by a motor, instead of compressed air. This makes them stronger than the drills of the past, decreasing your treatment time. They are also quieter and smoother than the drills that you may remember, which can decrease the stress you may feel while you are in the chair. If you have been putting off having your smile repaired because you dread the drill, call our office today. One of our team members can tell you more about electric handpieces and schedule an appointment.
