Developed in collaboration with Temple University, the Fissurotomy® instrument head shape allows early
diagnosis and conservative preparation of fissure caries, often without the use
A conservative method for the diagnosis and treatment of
• Tip of bur is smaller and more conservative than 1/4 round.
• Fine carbide tip will not strip quickly like thin diamonds.
• Virtually pain free to the DEJ... in most cases no anaesthesia is needed.
• Ideal cavity preparation form for a flowable
• Cleaner, more controlled and less costly than air abrasion.
The Fissurotomy® Bur allows for exploration of
fissures. It is virtually pain-free and creates an ideal cavity
form. You can explore and restore in just 3-5 minutes.
“Watch and Wait’ is not acceptable treatment. Early
detection and complete caries removal with Fissurotomy® Burs
is truly ultraconservative dentistry...(in most
cases) anaesthetic is almost totally eliminated...”
-Dr. George Freedman, Dentistry
A cross section of the same tooth confirms your
suspicion. It clearly shows the lesion deep in the enamel and the
dentin. No X-Ray Evidence Radiographs do not detect
all occlusal lesions. Enamel thickness can be deceptive.
You’re still suspicious. No Stick Surface of fissure in
enamel looks relatively healthy, and the explorer does not
detect lesion. But you’re suspicious because of the
decalcification and subsurface staining. For the
conservative pit/fissure exploration of adult molars. For the
ultraconservative pit/fissure exploration of adult molars for
the ultraconservative pit/fissure exploration of primary teeth &
adult premolars, enameloplasty and
improved sealant retention.
