Carbide burrs are a common dental tool used in a number of procedures. They can be made out of tungsten carbide or diamond. Both have their own benefits but there are many differences between the two. Ultimately, a burr is constructed in three different parts: the head, neck and shank. The head consists of the blades or grit which is used to cut or grind material.
Both tungsten carbide and diamond burrs are designed to be sharp and durable. They can be used for a wide variety of tasks from carving to grinding and pre-forming. They are also able to reduce vibrations which can cause discomfort for patients. In order to make the most of your burrs it is important that they are kept in good shape and properly lubricated.
Choosing the right type of burr for your needs is important to ensure maximum productivity and durability. One type of dental tool that is becoming increasingly popular is the sintered diamond burrs with metallic. These tools have been designed to be a more precise cutting tool than traditional burs. This increased accuracy leads to shorter surgery times and fewer complications for your patients.
The sintered diamond particles are bonded to the steel using a unique metallurgical process. This bonding process creates a stronger tool with better longevity than other types of diamond burs. These diamond burrs are very strong and are great for reducing tooth structures to put in crowns or porcelain veneers. They can also be used to polish composite or porcelain. This is a great option for dentists who want to achieve the best possible finish on their work.
When compared to a standard carbide bur these diamond burs last longer and are less likely to damage the tooth. They are also able to handle a greater range of temperatures than other types of burs. This allows them to be used on a wider variety of patients and makes them perfect for excavating cavities, shaping bone and removing impacted teeth.
This set includes 20 assorted shapes covered with a diamond coating. They are rated at 120 grit and work well on glass, metal, stone and ceramics. They are recommended for use with a Dremel or any flex shaft hand piece that accepts 3/32″ shanks. It is important to lubricate your diamond burs with water or 412 Slick Lube to increase their lifespan.
Having the right diamond burs in your tool kit is crucial to a smooth and successful operation. Both tungsten carbide and diamond burs can be used for many applications, but when it comes to abrasive materials like stone and metal, the best option is definitely the sintered diamond. This type of bur will last longer, be more accurate and provide the most precise results. Invest in a set of these diamond burrs and see the difference for yourself! This is a set that is worth the money and can be a valuable addition to any artisan’s toolkit.
