Modern dental practices are equipped to perform various treatments and procedures. These procedures consist of fillings, inlays, onlays, veneers, crowns, bridges, implants, post and core, endodontics, provisionals, and various removable appliances. All of these procedures require dental tools or burs that can consist of hundreds of sizes, shapes, and grits. Every dental professional has his or her favorite burs according to the procedure. Still, the dental assistant is required to sterilize, separate, replenish, and store in an appropriate area until the next procedure is performed.
Burs are a significant expense to dental offices, and such inefficient management of burs increases this expense. A large amount of unnecessary time is spent on dental practices every day on handling burs and files. The need exists for a unique bur block that aids in the process of storing, sterilizing, and restocking, but easy to identify by using a color-coordinated system.
