Electrosurgical apparatus for dental use employing an electronic radio-frequency oscillator is described. The radio-frequency oscillator or R.F. generator is powered by an electronic power supply constructed to selectively deliver full-wave rectified voltage and current for excellent cutting with minimal hemostasis, half-wave rectified voltage and current providing moderate cutting with maximum hemostasis, and voltage and current between the full-wave rectified and half-wave rectified condition for combined good cutting and good hemostasis. A further variation makes selectively available filtered or unfiltered rectified voltage and current for further control over cutting and hemostasis.
