"GT" Utopia Guards™

Utopia Guard™ Set Picture

Our Patented "GT" Utopia Guards™ are the most advanced guards on the market. They can be outfitted into a complete system that makes it easy for a practitioner to rapidly float horses' teeth.

Check these reasons why "GT" Utopia Guards™ are the best.

* A lower profile than any guard on the market.

* Machined out of aluminum to have light weight and then hard anodized for wear Resistance, or out of stainless steel for maximum strength. The choice is yours.

* Replaceable sleeve inserts that contain both seals and ball bearings for support of the rotating burr. These can easily and quickly be replaced if need be.

* Vacuum chamber and channel machined into the aluminum to remove dental dust.

* Water irrigation available that is very effective in removing heat from the work site.

* Stainless Soft Tissue Saver™ that is very effective and resists wear.

* Powerful Motor and cable matched to the units to be trouble free.

* Complete system includes vacuum line, foot switch and belt to hold motor.

* Does not require hand pieces. Flex shafts plug directly into units.

* Handy, shorter universal version is available to make your work easier.

* Ball bearings with seals are used for performance and to keep moisture out.

* Efficient, our special carbide burrs as utilized in these guards are the fastest method known for floating horses' teeth.

* Safe, these guards protect both the horse and the practitioner. When connected to a vacuum, they remove most of the hazardous cutting dust.

* Our #B58 carbide burrs and #BD58 diamond burrs fit these guards. This gives you a choice of the sharpness of carbide or the long life of diamond on your job.

* Rugged, these guards are designed to be long lasting with just a minimum of care.

Carbalux™ Extended Shank Burrs for your Guards

Precision ground carbide burrs when used in a proper and safe set-up are the fastest way to remove excess tooth material in floating horses teeth. We introduced carbide burrs to the equine dentist about 12 years ago. Since then, great advances have been made in the proper grind of burrs to cut horses' teeth. Also, shank lengths have been extended from the original 2" shanks to as long as 14". Guards to protect the horse as well as the practitioner have been developed. Vacuums have come into use to remove the dental dust from the scene. The design of the guards have been improved. The ones in this web site are the latest and best. The following burrs fit these guards. They represent new designs and new accuracy in grinding burrs. Guards of our manufacturer require our burrs to function properly and safely as there are no industry standards for the manufacture of burrs. The wrong burr may not cut efficiently and it may damage your guard. Our burrs are manufactured to a very close tolerance, made of the best grade of carbide, and the best tooth design for the floating of horses' teeth, and can be reground a number of times.

You should make a decision regarding whether you like the diamond cut burr as shown at top, or the double cut burr as shown in the bottom photo. The diamond cut is our best seller as it has the most cutting points and gets the job done faster. If you don't make a decision, then this is the cut we send you. However, some practitioners like the double cut as it leaves a smoother surface. The TiCN coating is available only on B-58 burrs either in Diamond cut or Double cut. This coating is well worth the extra cost as it not only increases wear life but it helps prevent loading or the burr and deterioration of the carbide edge due to the acids in a horses saliva.

#B58-12 Burr

#B58 Burrs have a head that is 5/8" diameter, 1" long. The shaft is 1/4" diameter and comes in various lengths to match the guards they are used in. The shortest is 1" and the longest is 14". Our guards require our close tolerance burrs to work properly. There are no standards that burr manufactures have to adhere to. Therefore, burrs on the market vary widely as to tooth design, head diameters, shaft dimensions and grade of carbide. We, therefore, have made our own standards and close tolerances on all dimensions. Our burrs will invariably perform superbly. Other burrs on the market may damage your guard beyond repair. For overall length, add one inch to the shaft lengths shown below.

#B58-14, fits our "GT-14" guards. The shaft length is 14".

#B58-12, fits our best selling " GT-12" guards. Shaft length is 12".

#B58-10, fits any 10" guard. Shaft length is 10".

#B58-8, fits any 8" guard. Shaft length is 8".

#B58-6, fits any 6" guard. Shaft length is 6".
