Diastema widening is first begun with the small tapered burr: This burr is used to begin opening the interproximal space of a valve diastema and create a small path that the larger burrs can follow. The conical burr is used in the next step to widen the path between the interproximal spaces. In older geriatric horses the final space is burred with the larger 6.33 mm rectangular burr. This width is enough for food material to cycle in and out of the created space without undergoing putrefaction and causing damage to the peridontium.

Incisor pulp capping aid: The sterilized small tapered burr can be used to burr a small opening into the injured coronal opening of a pulp cavity. With additional preparation the sterilized, injured area can be capped.
