What Is Dental Deburring?

Electropolishing dental tools and implantable devices removes contaminants embedded in their surfaces, as well as the micro-imperfections that trap bacteria and become initiation sites for corrosion. This isn’t the only benefit of electropolishing metal tools and devices for the dental industry, though, as deburring smoothes out the rough and jagged edges that may otherwise compromise part performance and lead to medical complications.

For example, dentists rely on high-speed drills on a regular basis. If parts like these have burrs—either on their internal components or on the drill itself—they may not function as smoothly as they should. Metal burrs on drills and cutting implements can also break off during use, causing infections and other complications in patients. Deburring dental tools and implantable devices strips away the metal flakes that can break off or impede performance, making parts safer, more effective and longer-lasting.
