During the 2016 Chicago Midwinter Meeting, Microcopy announced the release of its new NeoBurr 5572 blended-neck carbide bur.

Dentists depend on carbide burs for the most rigorous procedures, making the burs prone to breakage. According to the manufacturer, the NeoBurr 5572's blended-neck design and single-piece carbide construction remove any weak points in the bur’s neck that might otherwise cause breakage. In a recent blind study, the NeoBurr 5572 was tested against three top-selling competitive burs and proved to be up to 70% stronger than the competition, reported the manufacturer in a press release.

“Chrome cobalt is about the hardest material to which I will subject a bur," said Dr. Marty Jablow, following a recent product evaluation. "The blended-neck 5572 bur easily adjusted the partial denture major connector, and, in fact, I even attempted to break the bur on purpose and could not.”

“We know that dentists use up to five carbides, sometimes more, in completing certain dental procedures. Our testing has shown that the new 5572 exhibits minimal breakage when used during the toughest restoration procedures,” said Paul Tucker, director of marketing at Microcopy.

Microcopy plans to release additional blended-neck shapes as they are developed.
