There are basically two types of handpieces, air-driven and electric. Electric handpieces are much stronger than air-driven due to the fact that a motor is spinning the bur as opposed to an air turbine. This allows Dr. Miller to remove decay more quickly with less vibration and noise. It's still a dental "drill" but much better than the old days.
