Midwest® Diamond Bur, FG - Dentsply Midwest

Round friction grip diamonds are essentially drill bits (rotary instruments) attached to a handpiece used for opening and shaping cavity preparations, plus they can be used for depth cuts. Extra large sizes are useful for opening and shaping crown chambers for endodontic access. Midwest® Diamonds are manufactured with natural diamonds, which provide more cutting surfaces than synthetic diamonds. These diamond burs feature multiple, evenly distributed layers for optimum concentricity and reliable cutting.
