A dentist’s instrument wardrobe would be incomplete without a selection of dental drill bits, available in assorted sizes and forms, each crafted for a distinct use. Let’s Explore different types of drill bits traditionally used in dentistry and their respective applications.
When it comes to dental drilling, the cylindrical bit is a go-to choice. This bit will generate holes of different sizes, depending on the size of the bit itself. Perfect for drilling in teeth without destroying them, this bit is a versatile tool for any dentist.
Drills with taper bits are routinely part of dental treatment; they are used to bore tapered holes into teeth. Available in a variety of sizes, the size of the bit itself dictates the size of the opening it will form.
The toughest of tough materials call for the biggest of big guns. Enter diamond bits: the definitive dental drill bits used to create openings in bones or enamel’s adamantine surface. An abundance of sizes are at disposal; hence, the size of the hole is entirely interchangeable!
