Made to endure high temperatures and dental procedures, these round tungsten carbide dental burs are tough, durable additions to any dental practice. Built for high-speed friction grip handpieces. Surgical length burs provide greater visibility during extractions, root canals, and other oral procedures. The high-quality material makes them suitable for smooth finish cutting work related to cavity preparation, metal filling removal, and bone shaping. Can also be used to create access points, undercuts, or channels for luxator blades in extraction.
- Made from high-quality carbide, stands well against wear and tear, chipping, and breakage.
- FG Friction Grip - High Speed
|Shank Type||Friction Grip|
