They are used for finishing the surfaces of alloys made of precious metals, chrome-cobalt and chrome-nickel alloys and steel as well as for speedy rough machining of ceramic materials and imparting the shape and contouring.

Large diameter cutters can be used for machining wide surfaces and the correction of the bite. Cutters with a thin tip of the working portion are convenient for working between the elements of a denture.

The design of their cutting edges ensures the easy entry of the cutter into the metal in the conditions of the slight pressure onto the surface. Due to this feature these cutters may be used by doctors for the correction of solid and metal-ceramic prostheses in clinical conditions while using the micromotor of his dental unit though it is not as powerful as the dental laboratory micromotor.
