Why a Low Speed Drill?

A low speed drill – 20,000 rpm or less — is extremely important over a high speed drill.

We always use a low speed drill, and here’s why:

  1. Creates a lower rate of mercury vapor release
  2. Less traumatic to the tooth pulp, and helps prevent pulp death.
  3. Less cracking of the tooth structure.
