You talking about a high speed Dentist's drill?

Very little you can do to them, they are very high RPM so bearings have to be perfect, once they wear out they are no use. I assume that the water cooling is essential to stop the bearings getting too hot although the water's main purpose is to cool the drill bit (and tooth).
