Burs, Dental, Carbide

Definition : Dental burs made of tungsten carbide that are usually intended for use with ultra-high-speed rotary dental handpieces. These burs typically consist of a shank with a well-differentiated working head in a variety of sizes and shapes (e.g., cone, cylinder, inverted cone, pear) on the distal end; a tapered, notched, or elongated proximal end to fit into the rotary device; and a neck that connects the shank to the working part. Dedicated carbide dental burs are available for many different uses, including removal of carious material from teeth, dental cavity preparation, and finishing and polishing of teeth and restorations (e.g., porcelain, metal). They are usually intended for reuse after sterilization, but disposable (single use) carbide burs are also available.
