Frequently Asked Questions
We strongly recommend single patient use for all burs.
There are many reasons for this; drastically reduced amount of breakage, no lost staff time for the time-consuming sterilization process, elimination of cross contamination, AND YOU GET THE FASTEST, CLEANEST CUTTING BUR EVERY TIME.
In fact, after a single use and sterilization process (cleaning, ultrasonic solution, autoclave) a bur will lose 20-40% of its cutting efficiency and increases its chance of breaking – not just with our burs, but with ALL burs.
Tri Hawk’s goal is to make a truly unbreakable bur.
To achieve this, they take the ISO standards to another level. Tri Hawk burs are subjected to forces up to 5 times higher than specified by ISO, and they incorporate up to 10 quality control tests to make sure that the final packaged bur is the absolute best they can produce.
Tri Hawk burs have the lowest breakage rate in the industry.
Yes. Tri Hawk has hundreds of customer testimonials, ADA study 2006, Dental Advisor 2008 and Dental Product Shopper 2011, CRA December 2015
Every clinic and dentist will have their preference. Tri Hawk burs work very well with both air driven and electric handpieces.
Through their extensive testing Tri Hawk has found that their burs are at their very best when used with an electric 1:5 red ring hand piece. The benefit of an electric hand piece is that it has higher torque which means they lose less speed on contact.
It is very important to note that with Tri Hawk burs the less pressure you apply, the better the bur performs.
LET THE BUR DO THE WORK FOR YOU!
It is best to follow the indications of your individual hand piece. More importantly, we recommend doing routine maintenance of both the handpiece, the compressor and the air lines. Remember that most manufacturers require a lubrication of the chuck and turbine before each use.
The short answer is that Tri Hawk burs cut faster and break much less often (on average: 2 in 10,000). Tri Hawk increased the surface area of their weld to maximize the bond strength between the head of the bur and the shank. This is especially effective for smaller burs such as the 330, 245 and 557.
Tri Hawk's competitors typically offer crosscut burs for crown and bridge removal. When the saw-teeth dull or break, the cutting ability drops dramatically. The TALON on the other hand, uses blades, which carve through the metal and porcelain at the same time. The secret is to tilt the bur to a 30º angle, like a pencil tip, which allows you to cut tough materials like a hot knife can slide through butter. If you normally use two burs, the TALON reduces your procedure to one step.
You are spending less money, and much less time!
Tri Hawk's manufacturing facility is in Morrisburg, ON Canada. Tri Hawk does not import their burs from other countries.
Not only is their labour highly skilled, but they are also highly trained with a focus on excellence and quality. For raw materials, they use only high-grade metal from Switzerland and the actual tooling of every bur is completed at their facility in Canada.
