All disks for the Swissfloat and the are made in Switzerland

The selection for one of the disks depends usually on personal preferences.



Carbide Disk

The carbide disks are popular for their finer grinding properties, resulting in a smooth tooth surface. The life expectance of the carbide disk is in average 50-100 horses. The carbide disk is less aggressive than the diamond disk and may have the potential to produce heat during prolonged grinding.

We recommend using the carbide disk for users with little experience in equine dentistry and especially with little experience in using the Swissfloat. The carbide disk floats slower and is more forgiving in the hands or an inexperienced user. The carbide disk is often used during the initial learning curve with the Swissfloat.

Diamond Disk

Most users prefer the aggressive properties of the diamond chip disk. With a life expectance of approximately 200-400 horses, the Swissfloat diamond disks are much more durable, and despite a higher price, more economical.

The coarse grinding surface results in a short grinding time and teeth will barely heat up during treatment. We offer a coarse diamond disk with natural diamond chips on the disks.

Diastema Burr

The diastema burr is no longer available for the Swissfloat.

If you are looking for an instrument to perform special procedures such as grinding diastemas (ie enlarged interdental spaces) or work on infundibular caries etc. we recommend the HDE polyfloat.




Disk maintenance

It is important to clean the disk immediately after each use. Dental debris hardens as it dries and becomes very difficult to remove.  Please use a coarse plastic brush or a wire brush to clean the disk. The head of the Swissfloat is water resistant and can be rinsed with water for cleaning.

Use water restrictively and make sure that it doesn't run into the motor. Run the float on high speed after cleaning to spin off excessive water, and wipe the float dry after the final use. Since traces of water may enter the shaft, we recommend yearly maintenance on the Swissfloat.

Changing the disk is easy. Please refer to the manual for instructions regarding changing the disk.
