Direct and Indirect dentistry both require the use of burs to accomplish the restorative end result. Decay removal, tooth reduction, contouring, finishing and polishing all use different burs and can balloon a practice’s inventory if not properly managed. Additionally, utilizing bur that are past their prime can reduce productivity and cause damaging stress to dental turbines, leading to expensive handpiece repair. This CE webinar will review the most common direct and indirect clinical procedures and the burs that are optimum for each procedure. Strategies for inventory control and reduction will be discussed.
