Diastema burs are used on the cheek teeth of horses when feed becomes trapped between them. This is a common occurrence when the cheek teeth slightly separate. The feed that is trapped encourages bacterial growth that causes halitosis, enlarged pockets and periodontal disease. The diastema bur is used to open the gap sufficiently to release trapped feed. This removes the cause of bacterial growth halting periodontal disease and bad breath.
Diastema burs are diamond coated and screw into the non-guarded Terafloat head. Made in Switzerland.
Three types available – short conical, long (for mandibular teeth) and extra-long cylindrical (for maxillary teeth).
