A different spin

June 1, 1998
I am left-handed and have noticed from time to time that when I use my handpiece, the direction the bur spins seems to work against me. I end up having to push the handpiece to get a clean cut. I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience and whether there are left-handed handpieces where the bur spins in the opposite direction?
