Dentistry -- Number coding system for rotary instruments -- Part 3: Specific characteristics of burs and cutters
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2015. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 6360-3:2005 specifies the code numbers for specific characteristics of burs, finishing burs, cutters and surgical instruments, which refer to the type of toothing on the working part of the instrument. This three digit number appears in the locations 10 to 12 of the 15-digit overall number and forms the fourth group of three digits in the 15-digit overall number, the principles of which are explained in ISO 6360-1 and 6360-2.
In addition to terms for rotary instruments and accessories used in two of the three official ISO languages (English, French and Russian), ISO 6360-3:2005 gives the equivalent terms in the German language; these are published under the responsibility of the member body for Germany (DIN). However, only the terms given in the official languages can be considered as ISO terms.
