Why You Should Use Single-Use Burs in Your Office

November 10, 2021 blog01

It can be difficult to ensure you’re utilizing the right mix of dental burs in your office. Single-use and multi-use burs each offer unique pros and cons, so it’s important to find a balance between the two in your armamentarium.  

While reusable burs are more environmentally friendly and last longer, disposable burs eliminate the stresses of sterilization and figuring out when the bur is too dull.

Some doctors are wary of including disposable burs in their offices. However, incorporating single-use options can save time and money. You don’t have to meticulously sterilize your burs after every use. As covered in a previous post, there are a lot of steps and processes to ensure your reusable burs are properly sterilized. When you’re having a busy week and can’t find the time to sterilize your burs, single-use burs come in handy.

“I don’t have to second guess when the bur is sharp or dull with single-use instruments,” said Matt Nejad, D.D.S. “I also love the overall hygienic benefit. With single-use burs, you know they’re sterile.”

Dr. Nejad, a biomimetic and esthetic dentist practicing in Beverly Hills, CA, exclusively uses Komet USA’s single-use burs.
“I was somewhat limited in my single-use options before switching to Komet,” said Dr. Nejad. “Not only does Komet have more options, but it’s easy to identify which bur is which because they’re labeled.”

Komet now offers 239 different shapes, sizes and shanks of single-use burs. They’re packaged in a class 7 cleanroom using gamma irradiation sterilization. Our disposable burs feature inventory count on each individual bur pouch and have a QR code for easy reordering.  

No day in your office is the same, so it’s crucial to have burs on hand that’ll save you time by not needing to sterilize instruments after each procedure. Mixing single-use and multi-use burs in your office can ensure you’re ready for whatever the day throws at you.
