A universally accepted standardization is of great value for any material or equipment that is used globally. A single number or name should represent the particular material or instrument throughout the world. Since the dental burs are used worldwide, a single standard numbering system, which gives a unique specification for each bur in any part of the world, is mandatory.
The first dental burs were made of stainless steel (SS) and were available in few simple head shapes; later, the carbide burs were introduced. With the advent of diamond points, the shapes that are available to today's dentist have also evolved to a greater extent from the past. But each manufacturer follows their own numbering system for the burs, which does not conform, to the shape and size of the bur. A universally accepted standard numbering system is of great value for any instrument that is used globally. Since the dental burs are used worldwide, a single standard numbering system, which gives a unique specification for each bur across the world, is mandatory. Though the existing systems have tried to achieve this goal, they are complex to memorize and hence difficult for practical usage. So, the idea of proposing a novel system is to formulate a simple way of mentioning each bur with its dimension and composition without the need for memorizing the numbers.
