EndoGuide burs are a unique set of 8 carbide burs for nonsurgical root-canal treatment. The burs feature a patented, conical-shaped, microdiameter tip that acts as a self-centering guide for straight-line access to canals, maximizing treatment efficiency and conserving healthy pericervical dentin. Compared to round burs, this straight-line path provides an ideally shaped guide-path for endodontic files to help prevent file deflection. The burs feature long, lateral blades that sustain guidance when exploring root canals and blending the canal orifice shape to the root shape. Due to their diminutive size and conical shape, EndoGuide burs offer increased tactile sense of tooth surface variations and are also ideally suited for magnification-enhanced endodontics. The burs leave a polished dentin surface for easier visual identification of hidden/calcified canals and can reduce dependence on costly ultrasonic instrumentation. The burs are available in task-specific kits, they’re available for anterior/bicuspids or molar teeth, and they come in 5-packs of individual burs.
