Dental Burs (Photograph)
A variety of different sized and colored dental burs are neatly stored next to other dental equipment, including a mirror. After the dentist diagnoses your dental issue, he or she will choose an appropriate bur before the dental drill comes to life.
Dental Handpiece (Photograph)
A close-up photograph of a dental drill, a common piece of dental equipment, makes it easy to see the detail of the bur. A dental hygienist will use this handheld instrument to smooth and round cavities in the teeth so they can be correctly filled.
Dental Instruments (Photograph)
A collection of colorful dental tools comprises an artistic, abstract photograph. Tools detailed with green, yellow, blue, and red add color to an otherwise austere dentist's office. A dental lamp is used to better illuminate the interior of the mouth.
Dental Syringe (Photograph)
A close-up shot shows a metal dental syringe upon a white table. This type of syringe supplies air and/or water to the oral cavity for flushing debris away from the area that the dentist is working on.
- Dentist Using a Dental Mirror and Probe (Digital Video)
