BurButler Silicone Bur Block

An innovative system for bur storage, sterilization, and organization

Figure 1 | Shofu’s BurButler is the only silicone bur block with a clear lid that grips contra-angle, friction grip, and short shank burs all in one block. The silicone base resists high temperatures and distortion, and has a firm consistency. Fully autoclavable and designed to grip all shanks, the BurButler is an innovative bur storage system designed to bring time- and cost-savings to a dental practice. This universal bur block is made of resilient, medical-grade silicone, and it comes in five assorted colors—amber orange, amethyst purple, diamond white, ruby pink, and sapphire blue—for easy coding and identification.

The BurButler does not require plugs or extra parts to securely hold instruments. This unique silicone block features a patented starburst design with reverse fluting that grips all burs, eliminating the risk of spilled or misplaced burs. The holes offer drainage for proper cleaning, hold items tightly but flexibly so no burs are lost, and do not foster rust.

Intended for customized mixing and matching of burs, the 10-hole block is designed to have ideal spacing between the holes. This facilitates easy insertion and removal of burs.

A protective lid made of clear polycarbonate complements each bur block. Both the lid and base can be autoclaved together. Equipped with skirted grooves that assist with dust control, the lid grips the base easily, and it can be removed using just one hand. The clear lid makes it possible to see the content of each bur block, further allowing dental staff to organize their stations by personnel, procedure, or operatory. The block can also be used as a sterilizable storage box for a variety of other components, including implant components, periodontal irrigation tips, and other small items.

Whether it is used for storage, sterilization, or organization, the BurButler provides a wholesome solution for the entire dental office. To learn more about the BurButler, visit or call 800-827-4638.
