HP Long Burs (44.5 mm) are required for maximum visibility, safety, and patient comfort. 
Inherent Benefits Include: 
* Facilitates bur shaft shielding to prevent slipping in enamel perforation
* Makes perpendicular alignment easier and more precise in enamel perforation
* Minimizes lip abrasion due to its long shaft, smooth surface and tiny diameter
* Provides efficient, friction free spinning for the same reason
* Enhances visibility for all distal operations
* Offers easier access to distal areas, particularly third molars
* Permits access to lingual and palatal surfaces across the arch when it is indicated
* Allows close bur-tip handling for greater control
* Provides space for added finger assistance from the opposite hand

To Safely Reuse Burs: Keep burs submerged in a plastic water cup (while in use) for easy cleaning.

Check Bur Security: at insertion, before use (pull tests); perpetually in use (bur stem must always feel tight.

Security Attestation: Dale Ott (owner of Trusted Design Services in Lakehills Texas, designer of our custom

  collar, says all his industrial drilling machines use the same gripping technology as seen here. He marvels at

  their superb gripping force for such extremely light devices.

For Best Visibility and Access: rotate your patient’s head as needed; sit lower, higher or stand.
Do Not Cross Arches except for lingual or palatal lesions.

How to Safely Secure & Use Burs in All-In-One, Quick-Switch Combo 3-set operation 


Enamel Perforation for SMART in 6 Steps: 

Start with largest bur that does not fit in cavity: without cavitation.

(1) Dip end of handle in vaseline. Place into handguard. Place bur over cavity.  

(2) Grip handle firmly securing handguard. Align perpendicularly as possible to prevent slipping / injury. 

(3) Shield bur with fingers to prevent slipping, while twisting the handle back and forth. 

(4) Continue twisting til anchored. Test anchor with light pressure in all directions trying to dislodge it. 

(5) Once tip is secure: release bur-shielding hand in order to apply counter-pressure:  

     Maxillary counter-pressure: gently push down on the head

     Mandibular counter-pressure: support the mandible.                         

(6) Resume twisting, gradually adding pressure with equal counter-pressure, till 2-4-6 have sequentially penetrated. Do not skip #4. 

* Master these steps for safe, pain-free care.     

* Do NOT pinch lips!—remain vigilant as this is easy to do. Prevent lip friction with a 2x2 gauze or vaseline.

* Avoid wrist rocking to not disquiet your patients



Excavation in MMC removes infected dentin only. Deeper ‘leathery’ decay should NOT be removed. 

Cleanse lesions in acetic acid with micro-brush. Link details forthcoming (revisit April 16 for live link)


Third Molars

(1) Open mouth half-way; Place bur tip over lesion; Rely on your tactile sense as visibility is compromised 

(2) Stabilize operating hand with finger or hand rest; perhaps rest your hand lightly on face if permitted.  

(3) Same steps as above. Do not pinch lips!

(4) If lesion exceed size 8: circumferentially scrape 360° (by wrist action only) for a good GIC seal.  

(5) Cleansing lesions in mild acetic acid solution (or PAA) with a stiff micro-brush replaces spoon excavator.
