Let your professional journey be guided by the meticulous design and performance of our sanding burrs.

Key Features:

  • Versatile Shapes and Grits: Our Professional Sanding Burrs come in an array of diamond and carbide options with versatile shapes and grits. Whether you're tackling calluses, thick nails, or ingrown areas, these burrs are designed to meet the specific needs of different nail and skin pathologies.
  • Efficient Callus and Nail Treatment: With straight sides for efficient callus and thick nail treatment and pointed designs reaching into nail borders and small ingrown areas, these burs offer unparalleled efficiency. Adjust the pressure and speed to your preference for a customized, precise touch-up of the nail plate.
  • Coarse or Smooth Options: Tailor your approach with coarse diamond or carbide burrs for moderately thick nails. The coarser burrs provide a controlled and quick thinning of the nail plate, ensuring efficient and smooth results with every use.
  • Specialized Carbide Efficiency: For debridement of dystrophic nails like thickened mycotic nails, carbide burrs stand out as the most efficient choice. With medium to high speed, these burrs delicately approach the nail, preventing biting or bouncing issues and delivering optimal results.

In the dynamic realm of foot care, precision is paramount, and Rainier Medical's Professional Sanding Burrs are your trusted allies. Choose the right bur shape for your specific nail care needs, from shaping and filing to addressing ingrown sides and intricate areas.

Elevate your foot care practice with the precision and versatility of Rainier Medical's Professional Sanding Burrs. Because when your tools are precise, your care is unparalleled.

Use a light or heavy pressure - or a lower or higher speed (RPM):

  • For a light touch-up of the nail plate, a fine diamond bur will treat both the top and front edge of the nail leaving a smooth surface. Probably use lighter pressure or a slower speed (RPM).


  • For moderately thick nails, a coarse diamond or carbide bur can be used.
  • A coarser bur grinds much faster and thins the nail plate quickly and in a very controlled manner.


  • When using a carbide bur, keep the speed medium to high and approach the nail gently. This ensures the bur does not bite into the nail and does not bounce.
  • It may be necessary to smooth the nail surface with a fine diamond bur after reduction with a carbide bur.
  • For debridement of dystrophic nails such as thickened mycotic nails, the most efficient bur is made of carbide.
  • Consider changing the direction of the bur rotation if you have an advanced sander with this feature. That can solve a "bouncing" bur problem.


  • Choose the right bur shape for shaping and filing the nails.
  • Are you working to thin the flat surface of the nail? Use a bur with a larger, flat side such as the two burs on the left in the picture above.
  • Burs with a straight cutting edge will allow consistent reduction of the nail plate, leaving the nail plate equally thick over its surface.
  • Are you getting into the sides (medial & lateral borders) of the nails? Try using one of the first two burs shown in the picture below.
  • To reduce nail in the ingrown sides of the nail you may elect to use a slender "taper" diamond bur.
  • At moderate speeds these taper burs will reduce the nail while affecting the nearby soft tissue very little.
  • Are there tiny areas that need to be smoothed or cleaned out? Try the first two burs in the picture above.

There are also specialty burs to professionally treat some of the advanced nail pathologies that we see with our clients.
