3-13. SURGICAL BURS

Specially designed surgical burs (figure 3-21) are used by many oral surgeons to remove bone and to groove teeth for controlled sectioning. They are made for both the straight and contra-angle handpiece. Steel bur number 41 is available for AHP or SHP. The tungsten carbide bur is available for SHP only. To avoid excessive heat while cutting, sterile water should be dripped over the bur.
