Carbide Burs are available in Sterile and Non-Sterile models under various trade names with numerous head diameters and working lengths. The devices are reusable and are sterilized using steam sterilization in a gravity or prevacuum cycle.
The Dental Bur family includes Clinical Carbides and Laboratory Carbides. A CARBIDE dental bur is a rotary cutting device made of stainless steel, the working end of which is made from tungsten carbide, and which is designed to fit into a dental handpiece. Alternatively, the device may be constructed wholly from tungsten carbide. CARBIDE Burs are reusable devices.
CARBIDE Burs fit into a dental handpiece, which provides the rotation, allowing the user to cut hard structures in the mouth, e.g.,teeth or bone. CARBIDE Burs can also be used to cut hard metals, plastics, porcelains and similar materials.
Warnings and Precautions
Warning: Attention should be paid to the speed of work (RPM) o Always refer to the product packaging for the Maximum RPM oOperating a bur with too high of an RPM may generate undesirable heat o Operating a bur with too high of an RPM may cause the bur to fail • CARBIDE Burs must be thoroughly cleaned and steam sterilized prior to the first use and each subsequent reuse • CARBIDE Burs labeled “Sterile” require no further action prior to first use but must be thoroughly cleaned and steam sterilized prior to each subsequent reuse
o If the packaging for “Sterile” labeled devices is opened or damaged, the device must bethoroughly cleaned and steam sterilized prior to use and each subsequent reuse • Do not use chemical or dry heat to sterilize CARBIDE Burs, as these processes have not been validated for use • Do not use worn-out or dull burs • Do not apply excessive pressure on the bur as this could cause undesirable heat or may cause the bur to fail • Avoid removing the bur at too sharp an angle to avoid leverage and breakage • Carefully read package labels to ensure use of the appropriate device • Ensure the bur is fully seated and securely gripped in the handpiece collet prior to use • Movethe bur continuously when in use to avoid localized heating and/or damage to the bur • Maintain handpieces in good working condition to ensure maximum effectiveness of the device • Use a rubber dental dam while using CARBIDE Burs to avoid possible aspiration or swallowing • Always wear gloves when handling contaminated instruments • Eye protection must be worn to protect against eject particles • Surgical masks must be worn to avoid inhalation of any aerosol or dust generated • Bur Blocks used to holdthe devices for storage and steam sterilization are not intended to maintain sterility of the device
