牙科用電鑽是透過零件 (鑽子、磨刀石、輪圈、盤)的旋轉力治療患部的設備。現在最廣泛使用的空氣渦輪機式 (空氣驅動式)電鑽，以80萬週/分(rpm) 的速度旋轉。電鑽有高速、低速2種，根據目的分別使用。高速電鑽是為了準備蛀牙治療，用來除去其他的琺瑯質、象牙質和過去的治療痕跡 (牙冠等)，低速電鑽用於蛀牙本身的切削和預防性治療。由於牙科用電鑽是牙科診療不可或缺的存在，今後隨著牙科醫生的增加，市場也將持續成長。
A dental handpiece is a mechanical device designed for use with rotary instruments, such as burs, stones, wheels and discs. The most commonly used modern version of this device is the air turbine handpiece, which can operate at up to 800,000 revolutions per minute (rpm). A standard dental operatory is usually equipped with both high- and low-speed air handpieces, each serving a distinct purpose. High-speed handpieces, which operate at 200,000 to 400,000 rpm, are usually used in cavity preparations to remove the bulk of enamel, dentin and old metal restorations. They are also used to prepare retention grooves and bevels with a cavity preparation, and to develop the cavity outline. Low-speed handpieces are usually used for removing caries, refining a cavity preparation and performing prophylaxis.
The market value for dental handpieces will continue to grow, mainly due to the fact that these instruments are necessary for the practice of both dentistry and dental hygiene. An increase in the number of practitioners in both of these professions, which is expected over the forecast period, will drive demand for these products.
Growth in the dental handpiece market is expected to continue over the forecast period due to an increase in the size of the dental hygiene and dentist professions.
