The Occlusal Reduction Bur

The Occlusal Bur (Occlusal Reduction Bur) is a dental diamond bur used for occlusal reduction and is a very durable dental product.

It was invented by Dr. Athas N. Kometas.

The bur is useful in occlusal reduction and lingual reduction by acting as a router of the occlusal surface. The dental diamond abrasive has course diamonds and results in a dental bur that quickly reduces the occlusal surface of teeth. It is a must have dental diamond bur product.

The dental bur offered by occlusalbur.com is suitable as an occlusal depth reduction bur, or occlusal router. The bur is available in various depths corresponding to proper occlusal reduction for various restorative materials. A 1.0mm bur is also available for maxillary anterior palatal reduction.

The Occlusal Reduction Bur is a patented diamond bur design that allows access to the pits and fissures of the tooth from a vertical orientation.
The bur has a unique angled stop that limits the bur at the designated depth. A cross-hatched pattern is formed on the occlusal surface that when connected yields a perfect inclined plane reduction.

The bur is available in 1.5mm, 1.8mm, 2.0mm, 2.2mm, and 2.4mm depths corresponding to proper occlusal reduction for various restorative materials. A 1.0mm bur is also available for maxillary anterior palatal reduction.

Directions For Occlusal Reduction & Crown Preparation

I. Select the appropriate occlusal reduction bur for the restorative material.

1.5mm Green Gold Crown
1.8mm Orange Short Clinical mandibular premolar PFM Crown*
2.0 mm Yellow All Ceramic, Captek, Cerec & PFM Crowns*
2.2 mm Blue Long Clinical PFM Crown*
2.4 mm Red Used to level occlusal plane on a superupted tooth

*Ideal porcelain fused to metal is 1.5mm to 2.00mm of porcelain and the coping thickness.

II. Start the depth grooves in the facial groove and extend into all fissures. Keep the ORB perpendicular to the external surface of the tooth for greatest accuracy. Allow the self-limiting feature to touch the occlusal surface and then push the bur laterally. Place extra depth grooves if possible from cusp tip to cusp tip, overlapping the functional cusp.
III. Use your preferred axial reduction bur to remove any remaining occlusal tooth structure to achieve the ideal inclined plane reduction Many dentists use the ORB to remove the remaining tooth by lightly “painting away” the tooth structure between the depth cuts keeping the bur perpendicular to the external tooth surface.
IV. Finish the axial reduction and pack a small retraction cord If no build-up is necessary, pack a secondary cord and proceed to impression and temporization.
