Choosing the Right Diamond Dental Burs
The options for diamond dental burs are extensive as these precise tools are designed for specific needs. When choosing, it’s important to consider the dental burs’ shank, shape and grit level.
Dental Burs Shank
The shank is the longest part of a dental bur, which fits into the handpiece. Three main shank types correspond with the required handpiece speed:
- Handpiece burs (HP)
- Friction grip burs (FG)
- Right angle burs (RA)
Shapes of Dental Burs
There are many dental bur shapes to choose from. The shape plays a central role in its operation as this is the portion of the bur head that comes in direct contact with the teeth. Some of the most common bur shapes include:
- Inverted cone-shaped
- Wheel-shaped or occlusal burs
The final category for dental burs is their grit level. Coarser dental burs make powerful tools for grinding and cutting. A finer grit is more suited for finishing and gentler processes.
The Unique Benefits of Diamond Dental Burs
In the world of dental burs, two options stand out — diamond versus carbide burs. Tungsten carbide and diamond burs are both specialized dental instruments. While both are used to cut, shape and polish, they are far from interchangeable.
Carbide burs are ideal for slicing small pieces of tooth and can withstand high temperatures. However, this material may have difficulty cutting through zirconia or lithium disilicate. Diamonds are one of the hardest materials on Earth, making them ideal for tackling almost any surface. Diamond dental burs excel at cutting through tooth enamel and bone.
At ProDentUSA, we’re in the business of spreading smiles, one instrument at a time. We proudly stand behind each of our diamond dental burs with the ProDent Promise, ensuring your satisfaction and outstanding results.
