The larger cutting blade diameter is popular in medium canine patients. It is dual purpose and used for sectioning and bone removal prior to luxation. The RA bur should be used in a low speed unit (5,000 – 20,000rpm). Always make sure that there is adequate lubrication. It is best practice to use a handset with inbuilt water lubrication.

Companion animal teeth are very different from our own. VDS burs are selected for their quality and suitability for the everyday challenges of veterinary dentistry. Each bur has been selected for a specific use and should always be used with our dental systems to ensure longevity and performance. VDS burs are designed to be used multiple times (unlike poorer quality single use burs) making them a cost effective solution. Veterinary dental burs are available in a wide range of types and sizes. FG or friction grip burs fit in the highspeed handpiece. RA are designed for lower speeds and are fitted into a lower speed handpiece. HP burs are also for a lower speed handpiece and these burs fit into a straight nose cone. HP burs are typically used for rabbits and rodents.
