ROCK HILL, South Carolina--If you are a left-handed dental professional searching for an instrument that will cut plaster, acrylics or metal alloys, then check out burs offered from KOMET USA.KOMET USA offers eight different instruments allowing left-handed operators to ergonomically cut material efficiently and precisely. Standard cutters only cut efficiently if rotating to the right. This means only right-handed users can work towards their body and left-handed users must awkwardly perform the same technique in the opposite direction. By using KOMET’s left-handed cutters, designed to rotate to the left, left-handed users can now ergonomically work towards their body.The left-handed instruments available from KOMET are:* H79SGEL.104.070—super coarse carbide cutter for rough trimming of plaster during model fabrication or of denture bases* H261EL.104.023—carbide cutter for fine or interdental trimming of acrylics, plaster and metal alloys during model casting, crown-and-bridge and acrylic techniques* H79EL.104.040—carbide cutter for universal trimming of acrylics, plaster and metal alloys during model casting, crown-and-bridge and acrylic techniques, as well as model fabrication* H251EL.104.060—carbide cutter shape especially designed for trimming acrylics dentures* H295EL.104.023—carbide cutter that is mainly used for trimming of metal surfaces during model casting and crown-and-bridge techniques* H79EFL.104.040—carbide cutter for fine trimming of acrylics and metal alloys during model casting and crown-and-bridge techniques* 329L.104 and 305L.104—stainless steel mandrels with left-handed threads to be used with polishersKOMET’s left-handed cutters provide an unobstructed view of the surface being worked on, and chips and dust are directed towards the suction device at the work station.
