Note: Lower RPM motors have more available head options, while higher RPM motors are limited to either the Slender Head or Standard Head configurations.

    Every PH3 handpiece consists of 2 parts: a motor and a head with integrated quick-disconnect fitting to hold heads securely and make head changes fast. Optional heads are available so you can create your own custom handpieces to suit your individual requirements.
    For optimal performance of specialty heads, choose the 8,000rpm, 15,000rpm or 30,000rpm Power Hand 3 Handpiece or Handpiece Motor as indicated in the chart below. For work requiring high torque at low speed, add in the 4:1 Reduction Gear.

    Heads below fit both Power Hand 2 and Power Hand 3 handpiece motors.
