IPR burs


Effortless interproximal reduction 

IPR burs are finely crafted diamond burs designed for the precise removal of enamel in orthodontic procedures. With sizes ranging from 0.3 to 0.65 mm, these burs enable you to achieve superior precision, enhanced visibility, and efficient enamel reduction.

Compared to IPR discs and strips, IPR burs outshine as the superior choice. They offer faster and more precise procedures while minimizing the risk of harm to teeth and gums. The controlled enamel removal achieved by IPR burs guarantees optimal treatment outcomes and enhances patient comfort.

To unleash their full potential, follow our recommended guidelines. Begin with a slow speed and gradually increase to the maximum RPM, maintaining a gentle touch. Ample water usage is crucial for efficient cooling and minimizing heat. For further details, please continue reading below.


What is Interproximal Reudction?

Interproximal reduction (IPR) is a precise dental procedure involving the removal of a very small portion of enamel in the interproximal spaces. It is commonly used in orthodontic treatment to address crowding and create space for tooth movement. By utilizing specially designed tools such as IPR burs, IPR discs, and IPR strips, the procedure ensures minimal enamel removal. This meticulous approach allows for precise alignment of teeth and enhances smile aesthetics. Additionally, IPR aids in plaque and tartar removal, promoting optimal oral hygiene and reducing the risk of gum disease. This minimally invasive procedure is performed in-office without the need for anesthesia, and any post-operative sensitivity is transient.


IPR burs: a modern solution for interproximal reduction

When it comes to interproximal reduction (IPR), using the right burs can make all the difference in achieving accurate and efficient results. IPR burs are available in different grits, ranging from medium to super fine, allowing for a customized approach to enamel removal. It is recommended to begin with medium-grit burs to quickly remove the required amount of enamel, followed by fine-grit burs to achieve a smooth tooth surface and ensure precise parallelism. Our collection of IPR burs includes the following notable options:

How to properly use IPR burs?

When it comes to using IPR burs, it's essential to select the right ones that offer cost-effectiveness and ease of use. However, with a wide range of brands and types available, opting for high-quality burs is crucial. The cheaper alternatives may break easily and lack the precision and comfort required for successful procedures. 

To ensure optimal results we recommend to follow these guidelines:

  1. Start with low RPM to achieve the desired angulation, and gradually increase the speed until you reach maximum RPM levels.
  2. Use an ample amount of water during the procedure to minimize heat generation and potential damage to the tooth structure.
  3. Work gently and avoid swift movements that can cause unintentional damage to the tissue.


Longevity tips for IPR burs

To ensure the longevity of your IPR burs, we recommend the following tips:

  1. Choose the right bur size: Opt for 0.3mm IPR burs for the anterior teeth and 0.4mm burs for the posterior teeth. This ensures proper enamel removal without causing unnecessary damage.

  2. Break contact before starting: Prior to using the burs, it's important to break the contact between the teeth. One effective method is to place a wedge between the teeth after the third aligner when tooth movement begins. This helps create space and facilitates the IPR process.

  3. Start the interproximal reduction: With the wedge in place, begin the interproximal reduction to remove the desired amount of enamel. Take care to follow the recommended angulation and use gentle, controlled movements.

  4. Finish the procedure: Once the desired reduction is achieved, carefully remove the wedge and complete the procedure. Make sure to assess the tooth surface for smoothness and accuracy.

By following these tips, you can maximize the lifespan of your IPR burs and ensure successful interproximal reduction throughout the treatment.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a modern teeth straightening treatment that replaces traditional braces. It involves using removable aligners made of a flexible, thermoplastic material specifically designed for the treatment. Unlike braces, which are fixed to the teeth, Invisalign aligners can be taken out when eating, brushing, or for special occasions.

During Invisalign treatment, the patient's teeth are individually mapped to create a personalized plan. This allows for precise application of the required force and direction to achieve optimal results. Regular check-ins with the doctor ensure that progress is on track and any necessary adjustments can be made.
