Professional High-Quality Sanding Burs for Hyperkeratotic Tissue & Hypertrophic/Dystrophic Nails


Burs are most commonly Diamond or Carbide. They come in a large variety of shapes and grits. The shapes are designed for specific nail or skin pathology.

  • Straight sides are efficient for calluses and thick nails.
  • Pointed designs will reach into nail borders and small ingrown areas.

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.

5 of 5 Excellent burrs for foot care September 4, 2023
Reviewer: Kim West, RN CFCS from Spokane, WA United States  
I am using a variety of burrs from Rainiermeded.com including the Tian burrs. These appear to be extremely durable and I anticipate that they will last a considerable amount of time.  
I have found that the small barrel diamond tip burrs are a favorite of mine to use. The small size allows me to reach areas around edges and and the distal tips of nails easily.
And who doesn't appreciate the 'skinny bit' burrs?  They are so useful along the shoulders of the nail when needed.
The quality of these products really justify the cost.
Thank you Dr. Julia for offering these fine products!

5 of 5 Great products! May 23, 2023
Reviewer: Kim West RN CFCS from Spokane, WA United States  
I prefer to purchase my burrs from Raininermeded.com because Dr. Overstreet carries the finest quality of durable burrs.
I also purchased two Medicool Files. One for my home office and one for my away kit. Let me tell you...you want to have a back up Efile in case one goes haywire on you.
I support Dr Overstreet's products that she offers because she has a noble cause which is training the best foot care nurses for now and for the future.
