Carbides and Diamonds
Carbides & Diamonds Rotary Instruments CATEGORY DESCRIPTION
Rotary instruments are essential for shaping and cutting back teeth for the placement of crowns and bridges. Diamonds and carbides are the most prominent types of rotary instruments.
As the hardest material on earth, diamonds are used to create burs that are capable of shaving teeth in order to place crowns and veneers and smooth down composite materials. These instruments, then, must enable dental practitioners to finish these common procedures with accurate precision. The most effective and advanced diamond instruments on the market are durable and come in several different shapes and sizes. In addition, they offer a variety of grit sizes ranging from super coarse, which is used for trimming down teeth, to super fine, which is used most often for polishing.
Carbide rotary instruments, on the other hand, are made of tungsten carbide and are used for cutting. Like the diamond bur, the carbide bur comes in a variety of shapes and sizes; however, these tools are used more frequently for sharp cutting or trimming and tend to leave a smoother surface than a diamond bur. They can also be re-sharpened, which increases the product’s longevity.
Both diamond and carbide burs are useful when it comes to removing tooth material and replacing it with artificial material. The best instruments often have coating and advanced cutting technology, create less vibration, and require less pressure to cut, making them easier to use and providing more comfort for the patient being worked on. The best brands on the market offer a wide range of shapes, sizes, and grits, providing dentists with longer-lasting tools capable of every possible function needed for their most common procedures.
