Dental Drill : What is it?

Dental Drills

Dental drills, also known as dentist’s drills, are dental equipment used by professional dentists to extract rotten tooth debris and treat dental caries. They can also be use in industrial applications like drilling through hard pieces of jewelry. They have a high rotating speed of 800,000 revolutions per minute (rpm).

Dental drills are made of steel burs coated in diamond or tungsten carbide coverings. They produce harsh and shrilly sounds when used.
