The system benefits patients in that it is virtually pain-free, and in most cases no anesthesia is needed. The bur causes minimal heat build-up and very little vibration, so there is no pain to the DEJ. The system is also fast, so patients spend less time in the chair.
Designed as a depth gauge, the bur's head length is exactly 2.5 mm long, which is just long enough to cut through the fissure to the DEJ when necessary. The bur head and neck interface offers a distinct profile so that users can accurately judge preparation depth while cutting. It is also capable of doing the job in a progressive brush stroke or a single pass. According to the supplier, an ideal, conservative cavity form can be prepared, filled and finished in 3–5 minutes.
The system, which uses only existing equipment, provides innovative bur technology, an instructional video, dentin caries dye and the new Heliomolar Flow microfil restorative. This microfil restorative is said to have exceptional flow properties, high durability and outstanding esthetics.
