The SS White® Comfortable Cavity Preparation Kit features patented1 Fissurotomy®Burs and SmartBurs® II rotary instruments exclusively designed to provide a less invasive and more comfortable caries preparation experience for patients when compared to use of conventional carbide burs.
What is the Science Behind the Claims?
A clinical study conducted at NYU College of Dentistry compared caries removal with a SmartBurs® II instrument (without anesthesia) to caries removal with a conventional carbide bur (with anesthesia). Results showed that 84% of patients preferred use of a SmartBurs® II instrument compared to use of a carbide bur with no local anesthetic for future dental treatment.*
The NYU patient study showed that there was no postoperative hypersensitivity in either Class I or V procedures conducted on 40 patients.*
A comparative study at the University of Maryland concluded that the use of SmartBurs® II appears to offer a straight forward and efficient means for achieving the goal of conservative dentistry with a method for removing caries-infected dentin while preserving caries-unaffected dentin and conserving healthy tooth structure.*
