Caries removal in deep lesions can pose a risk of pulp exposure. Smartburs® II is a patented self-limiting polymer
instrument, designed to eliminate the risk of unintentional pulp exposure. For use in right-angle
Based upon the science of tooth structure hardness, the
instrument is hard enough to cut only softer decayed (infected) dentin while
leaving harder, affected and healthy dentin intact. Studies have shown that SmartBurs II offers:
Greater safety and peace of mind when working in
deep carious lesions.
Conserves healthy tooth structure, which reduces
Deep carious lesion is present and risk of unintentional
pulp exposure exists while removing decay with conventional carbide burs.
Designed with Cariologists to only
remove decayed dentin, Smartburs II cannot cut
healthy dentin or enamel, eliminating the possibility of creating an
inadvertent pulp exposure.
Deep caries removal becomes especially tedious when patients
are needle-phobic or prefer no local anesthesia. Since use of SmartBurs
II does not harm healthy dentinal tubules, the pain response is not triggered
leading to a more comfortable experience for patients who cannot or will not
tolerate local anesthesia.
