A dental air compressor creates high-quality, high-pressure air through specialized lines to dental operatories, where it runs the handpieces that are used to treat a patient’s teeth. The power depends on the size and necessary output of the compressor but can vary between 1.5 handpieces. The air quality should be dry, hygienic, and oil-free.
