Alston Carbide Burs

Product Overview

Alston tungsten carbide burs are designed, manufactured and finished for optimum strength, performance and durability. An important element of every bur is the brazing technique.  The burs are brazed in the neck as opposed to the base of the head as found in many competitive products.  Our 100% carbide neck delivers optimum concentricity and strength.

Our tungsten carbide burs are engineered to cut more effectively, with a greater blade contact on the tooth surface, and reduced risk of chipping or breakage. The design ensures a fast, smooth, vibration free performance, reducing patient discomfort as well as operating time.

The shank of each bur is made from stainless steel, allowing every bur to be autoclaved many times, if required, without the risk of corrosion.

A unique product in our Alston Range, Cavi-Prep™ burs allow effective excavation and removal of carious dentine.  Sharp angles and a transverse blade at the tip assist in differentiating between carious and healthy dentine.  A slender neck offers increased visibility and superior coolant flow to the bur head, whilst the green colour coded ring ensures easy identification.
