Efficient Working On Zirconia Oxide Frames

14-05-2018

There is a growing trend towards aesthetic and tooth shade restorations.  Due to its high hardness, the new zirconium oxide (ZrO2) material is difficult to cut with conventional diamond instruments. Before zirconium oxide frames are faced, final corrections are often needed, for instance in order to optimise their fit on the master model.

Busch offers the new Ziramant instruments with FG shank for use in laboratory turbines with water cooling.  The instruments are diamond coated and specially adapted for working on zirconium oxide. Their advantages include a better performance and longer tool life as compared with conventional diamond instruments.

Ziramant instruments are available in five different shapes and two different grits.
